Pianist available...

I am a pianist who recently moved back into the Buffalo area.

I am actively looking for opportunities to accompany vocal and instrumentalists. I am also a certified Alexander Technique teacher and have a passion for sharing the Alexander Technique with musicians and singers. I am a good friend of Ivan Docenko.

I would be happy to meet or speak with you at your convenience if you have questions.

My phone number is 857.891.5934. It's a Boston number but I now live in Buffalo and am here to stay.

Thank you and have a great day!

All best,

Michael Serio

Unity of Buffalo Music Director
