Ron Borelli Teachers


San Mateo, California


Ron Borelli began his love for music and entertainment through his parents. His father played tenor sax professionally; his mother played stride piano. Other members of the Borelli family played instruments as well, including accordion, clarinet, mandolin and drums. As a young boy, Ron would attend engagements where his father’s popular band, the Al Borelli Orchestra, would be performing. Throughout San Francisco, the Peninsula and East Bay, the Al Borelli Orchestra was very much in demand for weddings, parties and social occasions.

With an early interest in jazz piano and accordion, Ron studied with the notable Don Haas and was influenced by pianists Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans and jazz accordionist Art Van Damne. After exploring many of the jazz styles, an interest in classical music developed which led to studying with the renowned classic pianist/composer Julian White.
