Ophelia has an excellent start learning to play piano. She has been working very diligently to learn the co-ordination necessary to play these scales. She says the Play Piano In All Keys Fingering Charts have been very helpful.
In the 13 years teaching piano in the Lake Elsinore, Murrieta, Temecula area my piano studio was able to produce 6 High School Diploma winners as certified by the American College of Musicians:
Jake McKeon, Paderewski Medal and $200.00 scholarship winner;
Shanti Ryle, Paderewski Medal and $200.00 scholarship winner;
Bret Paddock, Paderewski Medal and First Place - Top Five 2012 scholarship winner;
Sai Sivapalan, Paderewski Medal and Top Five 2013 scholarship winner.
Please, enjoy Sai Sivapalan's performance of the Hoiby Prelude.
