Hi there!


Thank you for visiting my website! 

I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to play and teach music for a living. It's not always easy, but there's nothing I'd rather be doing!

I received a B.M. in music education and a B.M. in music performance (jazz concentration) from Moravian College (Bethlehem PA) in 2018, and have been working as a full time professional musician in the Lehigh Valley since then. I'm always looking for new ways to perform for and educate audiences. 

Most importantly, I always make sure the audience walks away from any performance of mine having enjoyed themselves and learned something about the music. How do you like to enjoy your music?

I'd love to hear from you. You can reach me via email at pwkerssen@gmail.com or by phone at 973-934-3854.
