You can have Music from any Genre You Wish

I’ve been a serious student of the piano for more than 30 years. After Many years of classical piano study, I obtained a degree in Jazz Studies from Webster University, studying with the legendary pianist CarolBeth True.  This gives me a broad background to authentically cover a wide range of styles.  My repertoire includes favorites from every decade from genres spanning pop, adult contemporary, jazz classics, show-tunes, and classical music.
