"I've played piano since I was seven years old," says Ken Schoenwetter. "A perfect night for me is an exciting party, reception, or any event where people would enjoy hearing their favorite songs. My specialty is playing your requests of popular songs from the last 70 or 80 years, by ear and from memory."
Schoenwetter's setlists include a wide array of popular standards, Broadway and movie music, jazz numbers, and pop songs. "I also teach piano to adults who've always wanted to play or are coming back to piano," he says. Courses are available for students in Rancho Peñasquitos, Carmel Valley, Del Mar, La Jolla, Scripps Ranch, and other communities.
