I love music because I get to learn new songs to play to my family, and I have fun in my lessons!
Audrey has such great lessons and she is so eager to learn. She is a great joy to work with and brings such happiness to our lessons. Audrey is the last lesson of my day which means I always end on a high note! Each week she continues to progress and proves that music is in her DNA.

I love music because it allows me to function during daily life and it inspires me. I listen to music constantly throughout the day and I don't know what I would do if I couldn't easily listen to music anywhere I am. I enjoy discovering new music as well as progressing through songs or discovering new things on the guitar.
Gus has worked so diligently at the guitar this year. He made his high school’s most advanced ensemble as a freshman, and he earned highest marks at this year's UIL competition. The judge there said he had the best tone production of the day, and Gus will go on to compete at a state-wide level. His hard work has shown awesome results and Gus should be proud!

I love music because it gives me an outlet to express my emotions.
Ava is an inspiring young woman. In the past year and a half since we've been working together, she has met every challenge with grace and determination. I've given her challenge after challenge, and she comes back the next week having taken my comments to heart, and having worked hard on her given assignments, despite the demands of being in two separate theatre programs. Her growth is inspiring and I love the time we spend together each week. She deeply deserves being student of the month. reat job, Ava!

I spend a lot of my time solving Rubik’s Cubes, and composing songs on the piano reminds me of that. When you’re solving a Rubik’s Cube, you already know what pattern you’re trying to get to—it’s already there, you just need to figure out how to get to it. The way you do that is by stringing together a bunch of algorithms you’ve already learned—you have to figure out in what order, what time, and what place to use them. Writing a composition is the same way for me. I have some ideas in my head, little musical ideas that will be part of the song—those are like the algorithms. Once I figure that out, then I have a composition, which is like a Rubik’s Cube where all the sides are one color. That’s why I love composing and the piano and music—it’s like trying to solve a puzzle.
I would like to nominate Ishan for student of the month. Ishan is one of my most hardworking students, and it shows in his rapid progress. He is very excited about piano and composition, enthusiastic about practicing, and extremely self-motivated to explore music on his own (in addition to his weekly assignment). I’m always extremely impressed when Ishan teaches himself a new piece in a matter of days from a YouTube video, then performs it for me at his next next lesson. He regularly composes very interesting and engaging pieces, using advanced harmonies and organizational structures, which he devises on his own. Ishan has recently completed Musical Journey Level 2 with a beautiful recording project. I’m also very proud of Ishan for beginning to show interest in performing in recitals, which is a big step for him. I’m looking very forward to continuing to guide Ishan’s musical studies! Bravo, Ishan!!
