I am a piano major at Virginia Commonwealth University. I have began playing piano at age 12, one year after flute, and instantly fell in love with it. Since then, she has been awarded continuously for her musical excellence.I been actively involved with both instruments in multiple ensembles such as symphonic band, orchestra, plus accompanying the school choir and more. I also has gained a ton of performance experiences at competitions, honors bands, etc. I am very excited to share music with kids and see the positive influence it will have on their lives.
