Performing experience as a solo act (at private parties, cocktail hours, etc.), classical accompanist, as part of an ensemble, in the studio, and on stage. Original works for choir, solo voice and piano, as well as musical theater and film scoring.
I LOVE to play, so you'll see me smiling, first of all. I take requests and enjoy interacting with the crowd. I'm also happy to be 'wallpaper' if the performance requires.
Avi Amon - Pianist and Composer
I've been studying Piano and theory for almost 20 years. This includes formal Classical and Jazz training (including sight-reading and improvisation), but I have experience playing contemporary music, in pit orchestras & other ensembles, and accompanying as well.
Recent Performances include:
-recording with folk artists, Jenny & Tyler
-Delaware: the MUSICAL
-instrumental and vocal accompaniment
-Stage and Rehearsal Pianist for The Resident Ensemble Players at the University of Delaware
At the University of Delaware, I was active in several Jazz Ensembles. I studied with Tom Palmer and had the opportunity to share the stage with Jeff Coffin and Roger Ingram, to name a few. I was also the Musical Director and Lead Arranger for Deltones A-Cappella, and a member (bass II) of the internationally-renowned University of Delaware Chorale under the direction of Paul Head.
As a composer (and conductor), I focus on the college and professional levels, but I have experience working with High School Choirs as well. In addition to arranging music for a-cappella groups, I've had several of my original works performed by solo artists and choirs in the area; please contact me for samples and rates. I'm always looking to make new connections with and learn from choir directors and other composers!
I am currently pursuing an MFA in Musical Theater Writing at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU.
