About the Teacher

Laurel Tinney is a vibrant, experienced classical piano teacher who engages her students fully and whole-heartedly in the process of learning the piano.

Laurel has been teaching traditional classical piano for twenty years.  She began her classical piano studies at the age of eight with Elizabeth Bonaccorso, studying with her for eight years.  She then continued her education with Eleanore Trimborn for five years.  From 1998 – 2003, she studied with concert pianist and master teacher Alexander Fiorillo, a professor of music at Temple University’s Esther Boyer College of Music.  Mr. Fiorillo was one of only four students of the legendary pianist Vladimir Horowizt, one of the most famous pianists of the 20th century.  Alexander Fiorillo, throughout his studies, inherited teachings of Beethoven, Czerny and Liszt, three great composers of classical music.  Laurel is thrilled to pass on this extraordinary musical heritage to her students.

Laurel Tinney has been an active member of the Music Teachers National Association, the Pennsylvania Music Teachers Association, and the Northern Delaware Valley Chapter since 1999.  She has served on many board positions, and was president of the Northern Delaware Valley Chapter from 2009 – 2011.
