Mr. Jeremy Sweet, a Piano Performance graduate from Moravian College, has performed extensively as an accomplished classical and jazz pianist. Spending much of his time in Philadelphia, as a performer he has taken the role of a sideman, accompanist, and as a leader of his own jazz trio. His career has granted him the opportunity of performing at a number of prestigious venues such as the Kimmel Center, The Philadelphia Museum, The Barnes Museum, and The Curtis Center to name a few.
He has also acquired a wealth of experience as a private tutor by teaching a wide variety of students for over fifteen years.
Mr. Sweet’s professional experience as an instructor began in 2003 at Sacred Heart School in Princeton, New Jersey, and has continued through private tutoring until the present. Mr. Sweet’s teaching style involves educating the student on the fundamentals of playing the instrument and reading as a foundation, but also on the importance of understanding music theory, form, and structure. This is applied through the encouragement of student composition as well as the study of current music.
Mr. Sweet believes that the study of music improves one’s critical thinking skills and also provides a means of meditation. Through guidance that is tailored to each student’s unique abilities, learning style, and interests, Mr. Sweet achieves his primary focus, which is to establish a solid foundation from which a student can reach his/her full potential.
