Ms. Wanda Bradley is a gifted pianist, vocalist, artist and piano instructor who has been serving the Greater Baton Rouge community and surrounding areas for several decades. Ms. Bradley is very passionate about nurturing the God-given talents of her students through her exceptional instruction of music theory and technic for both novice and experienced piano students. Her students excitedly showcase their piano selections at their annual recital and go on to excel as artists. I highly recommend Wanda’s Finger Praise Studio for aspiring pianists who are ready to be challenged to reach their musical potential!
