From the Chorus
"So many people have asked me what the secret is to having Julianna continue to enjoy playing the piano. Honestly, I can’t take the credit as her Mom, and I can’t say that she was born with a skill or passion for playing. The secret is the sense of community that she shares once a week with her teacher and her piano peers at Westside Music School."
