Accompaniment · In studio

Nina played piano accompaniment for my student's competition. She agreed to play for my student a week before the competition since our original piano accompanist could not make it. Nina is very professional and responsible. She knew the music throughout and even led the rehearsal when I could not be there in person. My violin student won the third place in the US Open Competition and I am very thankful that Nina was so nice to help.
