George began studying piano at the age of five years old-his first teacher was a retired Julliard instructor. After moving to Atlanta in 1965 -he studied with Dr. Oliver Herbert Atlanta’s former president of the Piano Teachers Guild from age 6-13, Richard Bass understudy to William Maselos, while attending Ga State University-Dr. Ruth McDonald , Dr. Cart Lewis, Dr. Geoff Hayden, , and Ted Howe jazz legend and premier instructor of jazz studies at GSU, where George was a piano performance major. He placed 2nd in the State of Georgia National Piano Competition, recorded and toured with recording artist Peabo Bryson, was musical director for ‘The Wits End Players’, keyboardist for Atlanta’s Rupert Orchestra, & still plays professionally in the Atlanta area.
My goal is to facilitate the student in finding their inner musical voice and developing their technique to express that voice through their instrument. He believes the student should have a balance of materials that keep it interesting and challenging for their development. He performs a multitude of styles and enjoys music in most all forms-from Classical to Popular to Jazz.
