Hi, welcome to my website! I can teach you how to play jazz piano. I want to come play at your special events, parties at home, or in your restaurant or club.



Teaching jazz piano has been my joy and calling for 40 years. Read what my students say.



I’ve been playing, composing, arranging and recording since I fell for Monk and Miles at 17 years old. Just sit me down at a nice piano and listen to standards, bebop, modern jazz. There is nothing like live, swinging music to warm up a room.


I teach in-person lessons in Philadelphia and New York City, and online lessons anywhere in the world—all levels, all ages.

A musician you should be aware of is pianist Debbie Poryes. Her playing is confident, yet playful, thoughtful, but full of life.
— Jazz Chicago
Debbie’s extensive preparation and individualized approach to teaching helps me believe that I can achieve my dream of jazz expression. Each lesson is a testament to her expertise.
