From the Chorus

"Your kind words mean a lot to me and I appreciate it. I’m grateful to have had you as my piano teacher and will continue to integrate music throughout my life. Although my schedule seems hectic and cluttered, I will find time for music. There is a piano in every hall at OSU, so you’ll probably find me there once in a while. Again, thank you!"
