“HOLLYWOOD’S PIANO TEACHER” MARGIE BALTER, HER STUDENTS AND PLAYING FOR CHANGE FOUNDATION PERFORM CONCERT MARCH 5TH CELEBRATING THE INSPIRING BOND BETWEEN EDUCATORS/STUDENTS AS “MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS MONTH” KICKS OFF
Known in the entertainment industry as “Hollywood’s Piano Teacher,” artist/actress/educator/composer Margie Balter’s celeb student roster reads more like a Red Carpet affair: Balter taught Holly Hunter to play the piano in preparation for what became an Oscar-winning tour de force performance in “The Piano,” Tom Cruise took a bite out of his condensed experience for his piano-playing Lestat role in “Interview with a Vampire,” Sandra Bullock logged on to tickle the ivories in “The Net,” Scarlett Johanssen, Jack Black, Kevin Spacey and more.
CELEBS CONFIRMED TO ATTEND: Joining Balter throughout the evening will be current and past students including Paige Hurd (star of “Beauty Shop”), Magnus Ferrell (and his proud parents Will & Viveca Ferrell), Graham Berger Sacks (prodigy featured on both “Ellen” and Oprah”); Raphael Sbarge (ABC’s “Once Upon a Time”), Greg Walker (lead singer of Santana); Elizabeth Hunter, Acting Director, Playing For Change Foundation, and more surprise guests.
To help kick off “Music in Our Schools” month, Balter is bringing together current and previous students to celebrate the important bond between music educators and their students across the globe. Guests will witness the palpable impact as teacher inspires students and students inspire teacher in real-time. The talented group will be performing selections from Balter’s award-winning CD titled “Music from My Heart” and celebrating the release of her companion songbook.
