Classically trained, Arnie Abrams studied classical, popular and jazz piano in New Haven and later in the Buffalo area. Later in his career, Arnie’s dad, who was a truly gifted piano player in his own right, trained Arnie to develop his musical ear, and taught him to play by “ear” without the use of sheet music.
Combining these techniques, Arnie learned many of the most wonderful standards that were so popular during the 20th century. Arnie combines his classically trained technique with the style, enthusiasm and “heart” that his dad passed onto him. This unique blend makes Arnie Abrams your number one choice if you are looking to hire a New York City pianist for your private or corporate event!
