Bruce Boiney has more than 25 years experience teaching the Suzuki Method.  He is a graduate of Shinichi Suzuki's Talent Education Research Institute in Matsumoto, Japan. He received his Suzuki Method teaching certificate from Dr. Suzuki in 1992, after more than two years of pedagogy training with Haruko Kataoka, pioneer and leading authority on Suzuki Piano.  He is one of approximately twelve pianists in the United States to have completed this program.

He holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education with a concentration in Piano Pedagogy from the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, New York.  He has served as a clinician for other Suzuki workshops across the United States. He serves on the board of Suzuki Piano Basics Foundation and is a member of Suzuki Association of the Americas. He is a past president of the Greater Louisville Music Teachers Association.

Mr. Boiney’s teaching is profoundly indebted to Haruko Kataoka and is dedicated to the ideals of Shinichi Suzuki, whose vision was that all children can and should have the experience of creating music as easily as they speak their native language.  His conviction is that in the process, we change the children's lives as well as our own, parents and teacher alike.
