I have known Anna for 2 years as a confident soloist and performer. During this time Anna has been proactive in self-promotion as a performer and a teacher. It was truly inspiring for the students to hear her play with ease and to clearly outline the positives and negatives of pursuing a career as a freelance musician. Her knowledge, skills and confidence on the instrument has led to her many successes so far. Anna’s passion for music and the importance of the arts in our lives validated the feelings of many of our students who were present that day.
