About Jeff

Jeff Plissner
Jeff
Music Teacher, Master
Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Speaks: English
Instructs: Guitar, Piano
Education: Bachelor of Music in Applied Piano Summa Cum Laude from Ithaca College, May 1977.
Performance Experience: I began playing keyboards on a toy accordion at age three. I have been playing regularly for over 60+ years. I played two major recitals at Ithaca College for my Piano Performance degree. I have played in numerous rock bands in various local venues, as well as church and religious organizations and venues. Recently, I have played extensively at Music and Arts open mic night.
Teaching Experience: I taught for three years following my graduation in May 1977. This was followed by sporadic instruction on an informal basis until joining Music and Arts in Colorado Springs in 2017. I have been teaching extensively in both in-person and on-line venues since that time.
Teaching Philosphy: My approach mirrors classic piano pedagogy. I introduce the student to the Grand Staff as soon as possible. My approach is a mixture of standard repertoire, as well as technical. I include basic music theory such as circle of fifths and elementary chord formation. I also include blues, jazz, modern movie score, and even some video-game scoring if the student desires. I seek to instill a love of the instrument, and the various genres of music it can produce.

Get to know Jeff

I was born in Brooklyn, NY on May 9, 1953.  I began taking formal lessons at age 6 and continued with instructors at Julliard 

School of Music, Manhattan School of Music and the Diane Richards Piano Studio until age 12.  I played in various rock bands

from then until age 20 when I entered Ithaca College School of Music, where I studied until my graduation at age 24.  I played

various venues mostly in church settings and at home until moving to Colorado Springs in 1998.  It was there that I joined

Music and Arts at its opening in 2017 and have been teaching and playing there ever since (with the exception of the Covid-19

induced shutdown.
