      Get to know Philip Hawthorne

      Philip Hawthorne has been teaching and performing piano for more than 25 years.  A graduate of Indiana University, Bloomington, he has studied with the great Chilean pianist, Alfonso Montecino (student of Claudio Arrau), Elvin Schmitt (student of Alfred Cortot), and Isabelle Trüb, daughter and student of Annie Fisher.  A lifelong learner, he continues to hone his piano performance and composition skills at Anne Arundel Community College.  He has performed with the Shenandoah Conservatory Orchestra, as well as participating in a Beethoven recital series at George Mason University.  In addition, he has performed as an accompanist in numerous venues throughout the country.  His core teaching philosophy is that "everybody can learn", and that a good teacher knows how to customize instruction to accommodate each individual student, paying careful attention to his or her strengths, goals, and areas for  improvement.   He is quoted as saying, "There is nothing that I consider more important than sharing what I have learned about the piano.  Teaching truly energizes me!"
