Play the piano with ease, confidence and natural musical expression.

Whether you are a professional or amateur, you might wonder how to take your piano playing to the next level.

Maybe you feel tense or have pain during practice, or perhaps you struggle with stage fright and wonder how to feel more confident in performance.

My name is Louis and I help musicians play piano with greater freedom and expressiveness. For over 15 years I have been using a traditional approach to piano lessons that includes current knowledge of body mechanics as well as mindfulness and awareness practices you can learn.

You will be able to identify and replace unwanted habits with time-honored techniques that will free you to play naturally, confidently, and with communicative power.

If this sounds like what you’re looking for, I invite you to schedule a free consultation. 917-595-7137
I wish you much joy and freedom.

Experience

Piano Teacher

I was fortunate to be born into a home with a piano, and to have my early years filled with beautiful music. I remember crawling under the piano, wedging myself in between the bench (and legs of whomever was playing) and the soundboard. I used to put my ear against the magical music box and listen for as long as someone played. Music was calling me.

I had traditional piano lessons from various local piano teachers near my suburban Detroit home. And for my senior year in college my teacher helped me get accepted to the Interlochen Arts Academy school. As a piano student at Interlochen, I studied with Michael Coonrod and developed a passion for the music of Robert Schumann and a fascination with foreign languages.

At Arizona State University I studied piano with Walter Cosand, Jan Meyer Thompson and Rayna Barroll-Aschaffenburg. Several years later and after establishing my own piano studio, I noticed something was missing from my playing. Not only was I trying harder and feeling soreness and pain in my shoulder, but I was also unhappy with the sound I was making at the piano. That's when I sought out piano teacher and author Madeline Bruser. In her book, The Art of Practicing, Madeline offered help with the very issues I was dealing with.

I began working with Madeline and she helped me completely redesign my technique and approach to piano playing. The pain in my shoulder disappeared immediately and has never returned. I learned to play with more ease, and I began producing a more beautiful, natural sound that made me fall in love with practicing all over again.

Since then, as a student (and now teacher) of The Art of Practicing, I made up my mind to spend my life helping pianists realize their unique musical potential and be free from the physical and mental limitations they may be experiencing.

Other projects I'm passionate about include serving on the board of a non-profit called the Love Yourself Project. This organization uses the fine arts to help children develop self-esteem and build a strong habit of caring for themselves.
