"Hollywood's Piano Teacher" Margie Balter (Tom Cruise, Sandra Bullock, Kevin Spacey etc) Performs Concert with Celeb Students and Playing For Change Foundation March 5 for "Music in Our Schools" Month

"Every day I get to watch my students overcome obstacles and do things they never dreamed of being able to do. As a teacher, I inspire them but they also inspire me. That's how it works." Margie Balter, "Hollywood's Piano Teacher"

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 sunk his teeth into his condensed experience for his Lestat piano-playing role in “Interview with a Vampire,” Sandra Bullock logged on to tickle the ivories in “The Net,” Scarlett Johanssen, Jack Black, Kevin Spacey too, as well as the children of some of our most beloved movie stars and icons.

Joining Balter throughout the evening will be current and past students including Paige Hurd (star of “Beauty Shop”), Magnus Ferrell (and proud parents Will & Viveca Ferrell), Graham Berger Sacks (prodigy featured on both “Ellen” and “Oprah”), and other amazing musicians and vocalists. Also attending are Raphael Sbarge ("Once Upon a Time" ABC) and Greg Walker (lead singer "Santana"), among others. Elizabeth Hunter, Acting Director, Playing For Change Foundation also will be part of the evening.

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. They also will be speaking from the heart as participants and attendees are asked to share the important and positive effect music has on their lives and the world.
