The joy of music has been with me my entire lifetime. My father played guitar and sang happily many evenings after dinner and at every family get together. When I was first introduced to the piano at age 8, I quickly learned that I had neither my father’s gift to play by ear nor his ability to sing in tune. But the world of piano lessons and reading music has given me a leisure activity like no other. It is a great de-stressor and has enabled me to meet other musicians, perform for an audience, and make music with my family.
