EDWARD BEMISH - House Pianist at Cabonnay.
Beginning his childhood surrounded by music, it came as no surprise to his parents when Edward began showing his musical aptitude for piano at the young age of four. Influenced by his father and his sister, both skilled players, Edward acquired a keen curiosity for the keyboard that would lead him to where he is today - an accomplished pianist and much sought-after instructor.
By high school, Edward knew he would seek a life in music. He taught himself to play advanced pieces from great musicians such as Mozart and Billy Joel. Although he would compose his own pieces, he still was unable to read music. With no formal training behind him, he realized that to go further, he would need lessons and enrolled in music study.
Upon graduating high school he auditioned and was awarded a partial scholarship to study at the prestigious Berklee School of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. He then went on to enter the seminary at St. John's University in Queens, New York where he was pianist during Mass for several churches in the tri-state area.
After leaving the seminary, Edward went on to pursue an opportunity teaching life skills with mentally and physically disabled students. Music played an integral part in his interactions with his students and greatly enhanced his ability to quickly build strong relationships and trust. He learned valuable lessons from this experience that continue to inspire his music today - to appreciate and enjoy nature and the simple things that surround us.
Edward founded Bemish Green Piano Studio in 2001 and has provided over twenty thousand lessons to-date with students of all ages and levels. Teaching for Edward is more than a career, it is his passion. He is held in high regard by his students, his clients and business colleagues. He currently resides in Nashua, NH with his wife, Sarah.
