“Lisa has been teaching a little bit of piano this summer, and we were talking about what makes a great piano teacher. We both immediately thought of you, and how you not only taught us the necessary piano technique, but more importantly, imbued within us a love for piano and a love for life. You enriched my childhood in so many important ways. You have been one of the most important people in my life, and Lisa and I are both incredibly lucky to have you.” ~ Anna (Former Student)
