Reflecting back on the last few months of this year, I am so happy that life seems to be back to a normal, albeit a new normal.  Having all the students in the studio has been wonderful and I am so grateful that my little studio has been able to weather this storm, thanks to my teachers, my students and of course, all of our wonderful families!  We have gone through many changes here the past few years and I am sure there will be more to come - but I have learned with a healthy balance of hard work and love, anything is possible.  Music has always been a healing, transformative presence in my life.  The process of learning how to play piano has been one that has taught me invaluable life lessons.  It is my hope that this also rings true for you and your children in the New Year and beyond. 


Happy Summer

As we embark upon the last week of lessons, I am full of gratitude to have been able to spend the entire year teaching in person!  So much has changed but the one thing that has remained constant is music.  Not even a pandemic could stop our deep desire to make and listen to music.  I know for me, it has been the biggest blessing and has gotten me through times when everything seemed hopeless.   Joel, Bianca and I thank all of you for making this possible.  From sharing you and your children to being so cooperative in keeping us all healthy - we are grateful.  Wishing you all a happy and healthy summer!

As I reflect back on another pandemic year, I am very much aware of how music and teaching has been a healing and comforting presence in my life.  It has been my escape and my safe place.  I think about all of the dramatic changes in the lives of my students - and I am reminded how important it is that they have an outlet to express their fears, sorrows, joys and hope.  Being a part of their lives by sharing my passion,  is truly an honor and privilege and one that I am grateful for each and every day.  I wish all of our families a Holiday season full of love, joy, and hope. And a Happy, Healthy New Year filled with MUSIC!
