Ingrid's Piano Studio
Ingrid Forss began taking piano lessons at the age of 6. Encouraged by her parents, she also played the violin, viola, flute and organ. She studied with teachers such as Robin Freund-Epstein of Manhattan School of Music and Dr. Daniel J. Lau of Peabody Conservatory. She won a four year scholarship from the Reading Music Foundation and was also awarded a four year music scholarship from Columbia Union College in Takoma Park, MD where she began her studies as a Piano Performance major.
While attending Columbia Union College, she toured California with the New England Symphonic Ensemble as a piano soloist. Ingrid transferred to Walla Walla College in 1999 to pursue her music degree however, her interests expanded and she continued to pursue a social work major in hopes to combine the two fields and practice Music Therapy.
Currently employed by Forss Painting, Inc. full time in addition to being self-employed as a pianist, Ingrid has performed at the Stone Harbor Golf Club, Stone Harbor, NJ, the Golden Inn, Avalon, NJ, the Stone Harbor Yacht Club, Stone Harbor, NJ, and Flanders Hotel, Ocean City, NJ. She also accompanied the Woodbury SDA Church Adult and Children's Choir in Woodbury, NJ for several years.
In 2006, Ingrid was instrumental in creating the charitable annual Family Aid Fund Benefit Concert at the Parkway South SDA Church in Marmora, NJ, where she enjoys performing with her colleague and friend, Karla Rivera Bucklew. Ingrid also plays for special events, such as weddings and private parties, and currently volunteers at Shore Memorial Hospital in Somers Point, NJ, where she plays the piano on Sunday afternoons.
In April 2013, Ingrid received her Professional Certification in Piano Pedagogy from Westminster Conservatory of Music in Princeton, NJ. Ingrid has opened up a private studio for teaching piano lessons and looks forward to building up her student base.
