Q: How did you get started playing the piano?

A: My grandmother Dorothy Kirsner got me started with piano lessons when I was about 6. She was an amazing pianist and truly enjoyed classical music, especially live classical music in Des Moines.


Q: What is your favorite composer? A: My favorite composer is Debussy because I love his representations of nature and the different musical colors he creates. My favorite work by Debussy is his Suite Bergamasque, which includes Clair de Lune.


Q: Why is music important to you?

A: Music is important to me because it helps us connect with each other. Music-making allows us to be part of a community whether we are playing or listening, and the musician gets just as much from playing for others as the audience does from hearing beautiful music. Q: What is your teaching philosophy? A: My teaching philosophy is that making music and learning new things should be enjoyable. Everyone is musical, and I want to give students the skills they need to be able to have fun and express themselves.
