Warren McPherson began his music career at age 18 receiving vocal coaching and piano lessons under the mentorship of Collin Mullings, pianist for Morant Bay Seventh Day Adventist Church located in St. Thomas, Jamaica.
In the following year, his aspiration to become a professional musician led McPherson to attend the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts where he studied piano performance under the tutelage of Ann McNamee and Roger Williams in Kingston, Jamaica where he maintained honors-level standing (2004-2008).
Upon passing the Grade 10 Conservatory of Canada piano exam with distinction in 2007, McPherson was one of six students selected to win the Caroline Camron Gregor Travel scholarship; and he was the only student from the Caribbean. This scholarship allowed him to travel to Alberta, Canada for a piano master class, recording session, and a recital concert.
McPherson graduated, in 2008, from Edna Manley College at the top of his class as Valedictorian receiving Dean’s award and the Music Talent Award.
As a recipient of a three-year scholarship from the University of Southern Maine in 2009, McPherson completed his Bachelor’s degree in classical piano performance under the tutelage of Dr. Laura Kargul. He was among the winners of the annual Honors Recital competition hosted by the University of Southern Maine. Mcpherson graduated honors with a bachelor’s degree in classical piano performance from the University of Southern Maine (2013).
Warren McPherson tours nationally and plays in multiple bands around the GreaterPortland Area. Between tours, he teaches piano locally and online. Currently, McPherson serves as Musical Director for the Green Memorial AME Zion Church of Portland, Maine.
