"Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime isn't enough for music." The above statement, attributed to the early 20th century Russian composer and pianist, Sergei Rachmaninoff, succinctly and totally expresses my feelings.
Music is my life; my goal is to transmit my love and knowledge of music to my students, so their lives may be equally enjoyable and rewarding.
