For the last ten years I have been taking piano lessons with a wonderful teacher, Ludmila Karpovskaya (I took lessons for a couple of years when I was a child). I am enjoying the piano tremendously. Here are a some pieces that I have played recently at student recitals. Obviously I am an amateur, but I hope this might encourage others to take lessons "later in life" too.
A few years ago I met Minjung Cho, a wonderful musician and person. I have had great the great pleasure of playing music with Minjung. Some of our favorite pieces are recorded here.
