About Louise Loewy
Get to know Louise Loewy
I come from generations of musicians. Both of my maternal grandparents were
professional musicians as well as piano instructors. My grandfather was a
concert pianist and had a radio station in Philadelphia. My grandmother, also a
pianist, played the organ for silent movies. I have a few cousins now retired,
who were musicians in the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. My brother played
the double bass in the Pittsburgh Symphony for 37 years.
I began piano lessons at the age of five and continued through my college years.
I am a graduate of The Philadelphia College of The Performing Arts with a Bachelor of Music degree in Composition. While a student there, PCPA awarded me a partial scholarship. In addition, I was named the recipient of an annual award designated to the most promising woman composer in the field of music by the National League of American Pen Women.
I have been teaching piano for over 30 years focusing primarily on classical music. If a student shows interest in learning to play another genre of music, I'm happy to help!
When a student learns to play a piece they experience a great sense of accomplishment and pride.
I love giving lessons, as I find it so gratifying to watch students' excitement as they progress.
