My first piano teacher was truly great. However when Julia became my teacher, she showed me with great emotion, musical ambition, and amazing technical capabilities, a totally different world. She was tough, but her patience spread miles. Before I performed any piece I would be able to play it forwards and backwards but even better, there was not one note that I would play before feeling it. My journey with Julia is one to remember, because the good times and hard times where a lifelong lesson.
