My Musical Influences
I was quite fortunate to have had a most inspiring, adept,and knowledgeable piano teacher, Celeste Robbins, from the time I was eight years old through high school. In college, I had two huge influences. Dr. Billy Trotter was my professor of Organ Performance, and Dt. James Sclater was my Music Composition and Theory teacher. He is a gifted composer, and he's a good friend now.
I am an adult student of Mrs. Lofton's for almost two years now. I was 64 years old when I started taking lessons with her. She is the best and most patient teacher you could ever ask for. I thought I would never be able to fulfill this life-long dream and desire to play piano but she is very encouraging and patient, and is able to see your potential and bring it out. I enjoy my time with her and wouldn't trade it for anything.
