I started playing piano in first grade with my teacher Mrs. Schuman. Having piano lessons with Mrs. Schuman has given me a love for music. In middle school I wanted to learn the bassoon and saxophone, and my piano lessons helped me learn the instruments faster. Now that I am a senior I have participated in many instrumental competitions and honor ensembles. In college I hope to become an instrumental educator and be able to teach other students the power that music has. While learning at Reed Music Studio I have had the opportunity to learn life skills that are essential for my future and I am very grateful for the teachers at the studio.

I started taking piano in first grade, but starting lessons with David Reedy in sixth grade raised my playing to a new level. David taught me solid foundations in technical skills before introducing me to a wide variety of pieces to explore. He challenged me to play more musically, which led me to really appreciate what I played. Now when I leave for college, I will have all the tools to continue playing piano for enjoyment of the music.
