Christine Cacioppo has been teaching piano to students of all ages for many years. In addition to her private studio, she taught "Introduction to Piano" at Haverford and Bryn Mawr Colleges and was a member of the piano faculty at The Haverford School's Conservatory of Music. She holds degrees in piano performance (Kent State University) and musicology (New York University) and continues to study and perform. Treasures from the Piano Bench is an outgrowth of her knowledge of music history, theory and composition, as well as a lifetime of cultivating a love of music in children and young adults. Classic Piano for the Adult Beginner is the newly created result of her decades of adult piano teaching. Christine's other interests include cooking, gardening, travel, architecture and literature. Her husband is composer and pianist Curt Cacioppo and her sons Charles and Nicholas are professional musicians in the New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia regions. She currently lives on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
