About Claude Debussy

Piano Musical Genres - Classical, Jazz, Blues, Country, Ragtime, New Age and Popular Music

Musicians who play the piano are fortunate to play the most popular instrument with the broadest appeal. A pianist can perform solo, with orchestra or ensemble or with instrumentalists. As a pianist, you have the choice of pursuing many different types of music. You can play classical, pop and rock, jazz, blues, country, gospel, and new age music.

Some pianists stick totally to classical music while others branch out into other genres and styles. It is extremely tough to make it into the upper echelons as a classical pianist. Many fine classical pianists make their main living from teaching piano in college or in other private music school settings. Many of the great classical composers of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries were also great pianists. Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Mozart, Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Brahms, Stravinsky, Bartok are a few notable great pianist composers. There are many more.

Many of the jazz greats were also great pianists and surprisingly were influenced by classical music. Some of them even had a classical piano background. Thomas "Fats" Waller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Art Tatum had varying degrees of classical piano playing experience. New age piano music is a wonderful style for a more meditative modern feel and mood. A few examples of well-known new age pianists are George Winston, John Tesh.

Popular pianists like Billy Joel, Elton John, and Garcia, Tom Waits are a few names of well know popular music stars. The great thing about playing the piano is that if you want to express yourself, with some talent and determination, you can get out there and do it. Many social reunions, party and wedding functions need or require the services of a pianist and since there is so much popular, ragtime, jazz, classic, blues piano music, it is not hard to put together a repertoire to please.
