Mr. Bruce Boiney
Bruce Boiney has 28 years experience teaching piano using the Suzuki Method. He has an active studio in Crestwood, Kentucky and has served as clinician for Suzuki workshops across the United States. He is a graduate of Shinichi Suzuki’s Talent Education Research Institute in Matsumoto, Japan.
He received his Suzuki Method teaching certificate from Dr. Suzuki in 1992, after two years of pedagogy training with Haruko Kataoka, a pioneer and leading authority on Suzuki piano. He is one of approximately twelve pianists in the United States who completed this program.
He holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education with a concentration in Piano Pedagogy from the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, New York. He directs the University of Louisville Suzuki Piano Institute and is a past president of the Greater Louisville Music Teachers Association. His students have performed in several 10-Piano Concerts in Matsumoto, Japan, as well as in Sacramento, California.
Bruce’s teaching is profoundly indebted to Dr. Kataoka and is dedicated to the ideals of Dr. Suzuki, whose vision was that all children can and should have the experience of creating music as easily as they speak their native language. His conviction is that in the process, we change the children’s lives as well as our own, parents and teacher alike.
