I'm sooooooooo excited and scared at the same time. I will have my first piano lesson in 35 years or more on this Friday. I found the teacher on the internet and we just had a long conversation. He seems imminently qualified and extremely affable. His name is Dr. Adam Alesander. Look him up on the internet if you have a chance and let me know what you think. I'm so happy to find a teacher that I'm shaking. Here is one paragraph from his bio: Born in Edmonton, Canada, Adam Aleksander has been performing to the acclaim of audiences worldwide since his debut with orchestra at the age of fourteen with the Chopin Piano Concerto in E Minor. He has studied with Sergei Babayan at the Cleveland Institute of Music, Regina Smendzianka at the Chopin Academy in Warsaw, and Jim Bonn at the University of Southern California. He has performed at festivals in Tokyo, Tours, Atami, Orford, Quebec, Interlochen, Michigan, Cleveland, Miami, Slupsk as well as Antonin, Poland. What do you think?
