Liza Micelli has always been interested in humanity and our interconnectivity. At the age

21, Liza left her hometown and relocated to Puerto Rico in pursuit of the Afro-Caribbean

sound. She studied at the prestigious Conservatorio de Música de Puerto Rico and

recorded her first album with guest artists Richie Flores, Pedro Perez (Gilberto Santa

Rosa), Jimmy Rivera (Batacumbele) and Manolito Rodriguez, co-produced by

acclaimed Latin pianist and mentor Luis Marín. Liza’s skills as pianist and performer

would begin a five year career as an on-screen keyboardist for Fox’s hit show Empire

under Lee Daniels, Sanaa Hamri, Danny Strong and Debbie Allen. Her unique teaching

style continues to draw her to the screen as a personal coach for actors such as

Anthony Fleming of Starz’s Power Book IV: Force. She’s shared the screen with people

from Patti LaBelle to Alicia Keys and has enjoyed further study and mentorship with the

world renowned pianist, composer and, educator Danilo Perez, saxophonist Tony

Malaby and Kenny Werner in conjunction with the Berklee Global Jazz and Effortless

Mastery institutes.
