The piano faculty at the Music Institute at HCC is a group of dedicated and experienced teachers who foster the love of music and enable lifelong enjoyment of music in their students.  Their love of music and pursuit of excellence is demonstrated through their own achievements and actions.  Most of the piano faculty have obtained a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in piano performance, and continue to distinguish themselves through performances in the Baltimore-Washington area as well as on national and international stages.  In addition to teaching and performing, they are also active members of the National Guild of Music Teachers and Music Teachers National Association, and its affiliated organizations, on the state and county levels.

The faculty work with students of all ages.  Whether you are a beginner, a piano student heading to a music conservatory or a college music department, someone who wants to enjoy playing the piano for yourself, or a working/retired adult who wants to realize the dream of playing the piano, come to The Music Institute and the faculty will support, encourage, and guide you to your goal.
