About Justin Fitch

Originally from Bartlett, Illinois, Justin Fitch maintains an active music career as a pianist, organist, and baritone. He graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor's degree in Piano Performance from Austin Peay State University, where he worked for two years as a collaborative pianist in the departments of Music, Theatre, and Dance. Currently, he is studying collaborative piano with Rita Sloan as a graduate assistant at the University of Maryland and serving as the music director/organist at Luther Place Memorial Church in Washington, D.C. Over the last two summers, he worked as a staff pianist for the Interlochen Arts Camp and as a pianist/coach for the Austrian-American Mozart Academy in Salzburg.
     Pianist and baritone, Fitch is not always behind the piano. He studied voice for four years at APSU under Lisa-Conklin Bishop and Jeffrey Williams. In APSU opera, he played the roles of Bartley in Riders to the Sea, Peter in Hansel and Gretel, and Dr. Daly in The Sorcerer. He received numerous scholarships at APSU. He was named the 2014 Presser scholar and is a member of the Pi Kappa Lambda National Music Honor Society and the academic honor society of Phi Kappa Phi.
      

     I began teaching piano and voice in 2012 at the Community School of the Arts and taught at the Madison Street Music and Arts Academy 2015-2017. I believe music is a language of its own. Without knowing the language, how can one be expected to appreciate it? Thus it is my foremost desire to teach students the language of music. While I want each student to love playing the piano, my primary purpose is to provide the fundamentals of music, so that every student will be able to incorporate music throughout his or her life.
       The history of keyboard instruments spans hundreds of years, and I enjoy sharing music through the piano more than anything else. Classical technique, theory, and history are taught no matter what style is being studied. I take pleasure in teaching the multiple styles of music that I have studied and performed - Classical, Sacred, Broadway, Popular, Jazz, and Improvisation.
