Gold Cup Festival 2012 was a good experience for all my piano students this year. Although some young pianists treated it lightly at first, they finally got the message that they would get a critique sheet from a judge. Then things started to get serious!

Be on the lookout for the Miss Nancy Piano book coming soon!
