Debbie Poryes, Jazz Pianist and Teacher


I’ve just moved to Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square neighborhood last summer from the San Francisco Bay Area and am looking for work playing at events large and small. I can play a piano that is on site or bring my own digital piano. I’m happy to play solo piano or bring a bass player. We can add drums and/or sax or guitar if you like. In all cases, I’ll bring a swinging, relaxed, and joyful vibe to your event! You can hear samples of my music on my website (I’m in the process of updating to a mobile friendly design, so at the moment it’s still best to view it on a desktop computer). I’m also open to you coming over to my home and I can play a bit for you on my beloved Steinway B.

Music Instruction

Debbie Poryes, Jazz Pianist and Teacher


I’ve just moved to Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square neighborhood last summer from the San Francisco Bay Area and am looking for local students to welcome into my teaching practice.

I teach jazz improvisation to adults, including bebop, post bop, modern tunes (i.e., Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, Horace Silver, etc.), and the American Popular Songbook (standards from Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Hoagy Carmichael, etc.). I love to teach kids, too – I give them a thorough classical education with reading and exposure to the classical repertoire as well as incorporating jazz and improvisation when they’re ready. I’ve prepared teens for auditions into college jazz departments, and two of these were accepted a couple of years ago into well regarded jazz programs in Oregon and Los Angeles. I’m also available for internet lessons, no matter where you live.

In all cases, with all people young and old, beginners to advanced to professional musicians, we have some serious fun! I consider inspiring my students to be part of my job. Please see my website to hear my music, read reviews and bio. I’m in the process of updating to a mobile friendly design, so at the moment, it's still best to view it on a desktop computer.
