Hi, I’m Warren McPherson, and I’m the creator of Piano Lesson with Warren.
Playing and teaching music are two of my greatest passions in life, and I’m happy that I get to share them with you through my website.
Many of you probably already know me from my YouTube channel, where I share lessons, tips, and techniques with the thousands of subscribers I’m lucky to have a chance to connect with.
This website is where I show people like you how to play the piano the way you’ve always wanted to.
Here is a quick overview of how I got to where I am now, and how I came to create this platform for teaching players of all levels how to play gospel and jazz piano.
Back when I was 18 years old, I received vocal coaching and piano lessons from Collin Mullings, pianist for Morant Bay Seventh Day Adventist Church in St. Thomas, Jamaica.
Knowing that I wanted to be a professional musician, I soon embarked on a formal musical education that lasted nearly a decade. During that time, I studied at Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts in Jamaica; won a Caroline Camron Gregor Travel Scholarship to study, record, and perform in Alberta, Canada; and earned a Bachelor’s degree in classical piano performance from the University of Southern Maine, graduating with honors.
These days, I tour nationally and play in multiple bands around the greater Portland, Maine area, teach piano locally and online, and serve as the musical director for the Green Memorial AME Zion Church of Portland.
I know the joy and fulfillment that playing music can bring, and I love helping people reach their lifelong goal of mastering the piano. The truth is, anyone can do it, you just have to know what to learn, and you need to have a plan to follow.
I sincerely hope you decide to join the list of people who have discovered just how good they can be at playing the piano through Piano Lesson with Warren.
