JoAnn Floyd has been teaching piano and playing professionally for 35 years. Her passion for music started at an early age, and was greatly influenced by her Dad, a professional drummer. JoAnn and her Dad began working in bands together when she was just 17 yrs. old! Performing became a very important part of her life and continued to be so even while majoring in Music at Suffolk Community College and Hofstra University in Long Island, NY . She was very fortunate to have been able to study piano under some very gifted teachers/musicians including Blanche Abrams, Mark Hyams & Jazz Great, Marion McPartland. At the age of 20, she met another important musical influence, her husband, guitarist/singer/author, Tom Floyd. Over the years they have worked together playing engagements from Maine to Miami, at Hotels, Restaurants, Country Clubs & Resorts. During these many years of performing, JoAnn has continued to teach piano students of all ages. She has always felt it a plus to have had all of these years of musical experience to share with them!
