A Few of My Favorite Piano Players


People ask me all the time who my influences are, who I love to listen to, who inspires me musically.

If I’m not listening to piano music, or working on my own music, I’m often listening to singer songwriter style music, or alternative rock, or the Top Hits of whatever is popular these days.

My musical influences tend to vary over the years, depending on my own musical tastes, and growth as a pianist.
