Aron Bernstein is a former astronomy enthusiast who decided to make music his career shortly after high school. Originally from Southern California, Aron came to Portland in 2006, after twenty-two years in the Bay Area. At San Francisco State University, he received his bachelors in music theory and composition, and his masters in the same field at Western Oregon University. Aron has been a classroom piano and theory instructor for nine years, and a private teacher for twenty. His “studio,” so to speak, has included theory students at Clackamas Community College and some five-hundred private piano students in the Portland and Bay areas. He has also taught the Harmony Road Curriculum at both the Westside Music School in Beaverton and the Harmony Road Music Center in Clackamas. Aron lives to find creative ways to communicate his passion for music, its structure, history, and beauty.
