Andrew Payson – Founder
Andrew Payson is an educator and composer who founded Payson Method in 2018 with the goal of helping beginner piano students develop their creativity. He didn’t think they should have to wait until they could play “real” music to play expressively and think deeply.

Andrew wrote the books Payson Method Piano and New Classics for his students to create lessons that are simple but comprehensive, and beginner music that is easy but as beautiful as complex pieces.

Andrew believes that performing music makes us more creative. Playing an instrument transforms our brains and empowers us in every aspect of our lives. It changes how we think and can help us in anything we do. Anyone can learn piano, no matter what age we start. Here at Payson Method, we hope to make the path of learning as easy and as fun as possible.
