Professional Piano Instruction

For more than 30 years Torsten has been instructing students young and old in the finer points of technique and interpretation of Classical Masters as well as the basics of popular and practical piano usage. From beginners to experienced musicians he guides, teaches and tutors his pupils in a friendly and approachable manner. The finest of the traditions of European and American performance artistry are at hand here on the Central Coast of California. 

Music training not only helps children develop fine motor skills, but aids emotional and behavioral maturation as well.
