About Ed Gibney
Music Teacher, Master
Location: Patchogue, NY
Instructs: Piano, Voice
Education: Master of Music, Music Education, Boston University (‘11) Bachelor of Arts, Music Education & Vocal Performance (Jazz), Five Towns College (‘06).
Performance Experience: Ed began performing as a child for family and friends. Those experiences motivated a lifelong love for music that developed into opportunities to perform with ensembles at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and dozens of performances as a jazz vocalist with Big Bands. Now, his focus is on getting YOU on the stage!
Teaching Experience: As a 15 year instructor, I’ve had the opportunity to work with students of all ages and abilities. From students entering kindergarten to recent retiree’s hoping to rediscover a lost passion, there is no wrong time to exercise your musical muscles. Let’s discuss your goals and develop a plan to help you see them through.
Teaching Philosophy: Confident musicianship begins at the crossroads of fundamental understanding and relevant repertoire. As a music educator, my objective is to guide you toward music that will help you develop the necessary fundamentals to play the music that makes you the happiest. What fun is learning an instrument if we can’t use our skills to play music we enjoy?
