Author Info

Ana Sorina Popa, DMA, is a classical pianist, educator, writer, and presenter with over two decades of experience in piano education. She has benefitted from the instruction of many and is very grateful to have encountered both the rigorous discipline of the Eastern European piano school as well as the freedom of exploration offered by the American approach. While completing her doctoral studies, she became interested in the application of martial art techniques and pedagogy to piano playing in order to maximize performance and prevent injuries. Since then she has integrated her findings into her pedagogical approach and enjoys teaching them to the new generation.

Dr. Popa is a graduate of the New England Conservatory and Boston University, and a faculty member of several institutions in the Metropolitan Boston, MA, area. When she does not play concerts, teach lessons, workshops, and classes, or write articles or books, she is busy gardening and practicing.
