Pianist – School Assemblies
I am excited to now offer school presentations that inspire young children to experience the piano first-hand! This assembly program not only includes professional playing heard on the piano, but I help to share basic history and mechanics of a piano. I also weave in student interaction so students can experience and see how the piano works up close!
