Since 1992 Joe Zani has been offering mentoring and guidance for musicians of all levels, carefully helping to refine a student's musical abilities and bring out the enjoyment of making music that lasts a lifetime.
Joe Zani opened the Zani Piano Studio as a nationally federated music club, in Manassas in 1992 as an attempt to share the joy he receives every time he sits at the instrument. This love is evident to everyone who has ever seen him perform. Mr. Zani's overriding teaching philosophy has always stressed an emphasis on fundamentals, particularly in the areas of rhythm, technique and having fun (The latter of which is probably the most important). This approach has helped produce many musical careers and a wonderful lifelong hobby for many, many more.
The son of a saxophone player, Joe Zani began his musical journey at age 7. After studying Music Composition and Classical Piano Performance at The Pennsylvania State University, he embarked upon a performance career that included many years in the tourist mecca of Central Florida. This ongoing career has included work in nearly all genres of piano music, including Classical, Jazz, Rock, New Age, Blues, Ragtime and original composition. The performance strengthens the teaching and the teaching strengthens the performance. Diversity is essential to the creative process
The performance strengthens the teaching and
the teaching strengthens the performance.

"Joe Zani makes learning the piano enjoyable and informative. My wife Dianne and I decided to take piano lessons as a means to learn something new. Joe has exceeded our expectations in providing knowledge and techniques that enrich our learning and pleasure for the piano. We both strongly recommend him to anyone seeking to learn the piano and music in general."
"Joe Zani has been teaching our kids piano for six years. He is an excellent piano teacher, and we are so pleased with him. He adjusts the pace of the instruction to the individual, so if a student is ready to advance quickly, they do. He is inspiring too, the kids don’t want to disappoint him. Joe had no problem meeting our occasional requests for certain pieces. He teaches them something valuable at every lesson. Joe is also very accommodating, whenever we forgot about our regularly scheduled time, he was very gracious to try to get us another spot that week. We have recommended Joe to friends who are also very happy with him."
"Mr. Zani has taught piano to five of our six children over the last ten years. He brings out the best of their musical ability and encourages excellence. Joe is a fantastic musician who performs professionally and takes his teaching profession very seriously."
"Taking lessons at the Zani Piano Studio turned my love for music into something that I wanted to seriously pursue as a career. Piano went from a hobby to an instrument that I wanted to spend time practicing. Joe taught me technique that I needed to pass my college auditions, and always had high standards that caused me to work harder and become a better musician.At the same time, he taught me chords and pop technique so that I could grow as a songwriter and creative artist, which is what I am currently doing. I am so thankful to have taken lessons from Joe Zani"
"I have enjoyed listening to Joe Zani play in Manassas ever since moving to the area many years ago. He is a wonderful musician and a marvelous entertainer. I also began having him teach my daughter piano and was very pleased with how he taught. He not only helped her to improve her technical skills, but also with how he did it in a way that was very warm and inviting."
