The photo below sums up sending off my two graduating senior students this month; moving on to a bright future full of possibilities. I have worked with both of these young women since middle school and it's hard for me to believe they have already completed high school and are moving on to college studies. It's always rewarding for me to continue with students long term, because I get to see them grow in music and life. And then later cross paths around town or connect on LinkedIn as they start their careers.
My goal as a music instructor is to foster a lifelong appreciation of music as well as a love for learning and discovery. I have seen both of these graduating seniors develop their musical and performance abilities and grow their interpretation and depth of perception in music and beyond.
Congratulations to Renee and Carra- I wish them all the best, and can't wait to see what they will do next!!
Hi! My name is Mariya, and I teach flute and piano lessons in Redmond, WA and am a performing musician. Here I share thoughts about learning music and helping others learn how to play an instrument.
