About Edwin Garcia
Edwin Garcia has been a professional pianist, composer, instructor, and sound designer for the past six years. Since earning his B.A in Jazz Studies from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2016, Edwin has toured the country as a performing artist and has simultaneously cultivated extensive teaching experience working with students of all ages.
In his original music, Edwin focuses on jazz and popular music, but he’s equally comfortable in all styles from classical to hip hop. This wide range of influences allows him to connect with students of different backgrounds and interests, providing them a solid technical foundation while also encouraging them to learn to play music that moves them.
Edwin loves teaching because he believes that music lessons teach students about the challenges and rewards of commitment and dedication to a craft. In addition to being a lot of fun, music can teach valuable life lessons.
