Out and About

My piano studio takes part in several community events and service projects each year. From playing on a Steinway grand piano right on the street during Chattanooga’s annual “Parking Day”, to piano Christmas concerts at local assisted living senior homes, each opportunity helps my students of all ages to understand that their music is a gift to be shared, and gives purpose to their practice!
