Bryan Pezzone

About this Artist

Bryan Pezzone maintains an active freelance performing and recording career and has been based in the Los Angeles area since 1987. He is known for playing in all genres, equally comfortable in the classical repertoire (including contemporary music and premieres) as in pop/jazz and improvisation. Pezzone has spent his entire life, from 18 months of age, at the piano, which he calls “home.”

He plays solo piano as well as performing in collaborations of all kinds. Pezzone was the principal pianist with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra from its inception in 1991 through 1999. From 1987 to 2000, he was the chair and founder of the multi-focused keyboard program at the California Institute of the Arts.

He has recorded on innumerable motion-picture and television soundtracks. Beginning in the fall of 2017, Pezzone was asked to join the faculty of the Los Angeles College of Music as a multi-style specialist. He holds a degree from the Eastman School of Music and subsequently spent a year at the Banff Centre in Canada to focus on his own stylistic interplay, philosophies, and originality.
