Professional pianist, Peggy Reich, began her piano studies at age 5 at The Hoff Barthelson Music School in New York, and continued through her teens with Baruch Arnon of the Juilliard School of Music. With increasing dedication to her music she received a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University and studied under Menahem Pressler (The Beaux Arts Trio) and Dr. Joseph Rezits.

Ms. Reich has performed as part of duets, duos, trios, orchestras and as a soloist throughout the United States and the Carribbean. She has performed in such places as Carnegie Hall and Kosciusko Hall in New York City, El Museo de Arte De Ponce in Puerto Rico for the opening of La Danza Week amongst other venues. Ms. Reich performed 1 piano 4 hand compositions with Marvin Friedman as the Keynotes Duet and won numerous international competitions. Now, in her typical solo performances, she includes, along with more familiar works, the music of lesser known composers from all around the globe, especially South America and Israel.

Throughout her performance career, Ms Reich has been a dedicated and passionate teacher of piano. “I share my joy of creating music, and understanding music, through my teaching.” Her students currently range in age from 4 to 75 years old! The emphasis is on piano repertoire, mostly classical, along with theory, ear training and the mastery of composition. Throughout the year, students have opportunities to share their music as well as boost their self-confidence through recitals and masterclasses. More serious students receive direction and help in preparing for competitions. Many of her students have gone on to careers in music.
