I am pleased to join the Willis Music team as a Steinway representative. It is a place where my lifelong passion of piano playing intersects with a career! Playing Steinway pianos has long been a special experience for me, and I am so happy to be around these amazing pianos everyday in our Steinway show room.
I have played the piano for almost twenty years. I was fortunate to receive piano lessons as a child and into my teen years. As I grew older, I knew that playing the piano was more than just a passing childhood discipline I had to endure, but instead, it was a source of real joy in my life. Because of that love of music motivating me, I eventually graduated from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio with a bachelor’s in piano performance where I studied with Dr. Jackson Leung. I also had the privilege of studying piano with Dr. Robert Ruckman at Sinclair Community College.
On the occasions that I have practiced or performed on a Steinway grand piano, I have consistently been in awe of the beautiful tone, responsive touch, and resonant sound that can be produced from these American – made pianos; it is the ideal piano. It is a piano that is as enjoyable to play for the beginning piano player as it is for the seasoned concert pianist. Because of this, Steinway pianos remain the standard by which all other pianos are judged. It is these exceptional pianos that we at Willis Music showcase daily and sell to pianists of all backgrounds right here in Cincinnati.
