Tara was one of my special students - a real prodigy. She took her music very seriously and when she approached her competitive recitals she practiced furiously.
Here a Judge was really taken with her demeanor, technique and musicianship and took a few moments to point out to her the rare places in the score where she could have improved.
Tara, as usual, took in every word of advice with appreciation because she knew that next time she would even be better. Now if only ALL my students were like that.
Happy music and art, Cinder LeDell
