Dr. Adriana Bocaneanu


I am a professional performer and pianist with extensive artistic experience as accompanist for solo and ensemble performance.

In addition to my music background in piano performance, I had the opportunity to prove my excellent sight reading and coaching skills through choral and vocal work, performing with singers and instrumentalists.

I hold a Bachelor of Music / Piano Performance degree from Music Conservatoire “Ciprian Porumbescu”, Bucharest, and a Ph.D. Degree in Music / Piano Performance from National University of Music, Bucharest.

Currently I teach at Piano Art Studio, being dedicated to artistic excellence through personal and collaborative work. I had numerous appearances with Symphony Orchestra as both accompanist and featured soloist. My repertoire includes all classical styles and sacred music.

Professional affiliations include Music Teachers National Association, Georgia Music Teachers Association, and Gwinnett County Music Teachers Association.
