I began playing piano at age 4. My family moved around a few times and I had to learn to adjust to my new surroundings. I wouldn't say I was shy, but I kept to myself. Music gave me a constant companion through composing and improvising. It helped me stand out and it also allowed me to make friends. At 14, my teacher encouraged me to start teaching, so that I would see playing in a different way. I found that it was more than just technique, reportoire or even the sound coming out of a box of 88 keys, hammers and strings. It's all about sharing yourself to the listener. You choose how little or how much you share. But you can do it without any words at all.
