New Billy Joel Q&A – Did Any Of Your High School Teachers Have An Impact On You?

This week’s video from our Billy Joel “Questions & Answers” lecture series returns to C.W. Post College, where Billy was asked about his former Hicksville High School music teacher, Chuck Arnold. In his answer, Billy describes how he was fooling around on a piano, playing Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat Minor, Op. 23, when Mr. Arnold noticed his talent. That teacher encouraged Billy to become a musician. You can watch the video, a rough cut from 1996, below.
