My name is Sam Hirsh, and I'm a jazz pianist living in Los Angeles. I feel that my purpose in life is to express myself through the composition and performance of music. I love being able to connect with my listeners, and consider myself a skillful, soulful performer.

In addition to my passion for performance and composition, I also have a love for teaching piano. I've taught private lessons for several years to students of different levels and with diverse reasons for studying piano. Whether a beginner or an advanced student, they have something in common: the joyful feeling of grasping something new, and a resulting hunger for more knowledge. I myself am a life-long student of music, and am driven by my understanding that there's always much more to learn.
