"We appreciate so much your kindness to Aleks, he was quite honored to be the recipient of your generosity. In fact, that month of lessons that you covered enabled him to make a very fine video performance that doubles as his college audition video and also his entry to certain competitions. The results were:
He became in March 2021 a National Finalist in the MTNA Senior Piano Competition, which as you know means that he won the Michigan State level, also the Division level (Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin);
He was a finalist in the Dubois Competition held at Bowling Green State University in February 2021, a national competition with very high level applicants;
He was awarded complete full rides to Oberlin and Michigan and a very competitive scholarship at Eastman, and is still deciding.
So, your investment in him was incredibly timely and effective, and we thank you very much indeed!"

Children benefit a lot from piano lessons. Piano lessons help mold and shape their brain to be more musical and in return help them focus better. Your child will have to hold their attention on every single note and maintain the required rhythm at the same time, its amazing!
“Why does the world need a Piano Day? For many reasons. But mostly, because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener.” – Nils Frahm
