  • Boston Trip

    I just thought I’d share a few photo highlights from my recent Boston trip. My friend Amy Chaplin (of PianoPantry.com) and I drove well over 10 hours from our respective homes in Indiana and Ohio to receive training in the Piano Certification Course sponsored by the Gordon Institute of Music Learning (GIML).

  • Piano Party
