Memory of Rochester: I learned so much from the Secondary Piano lesson taught by Doctors in Eastman School of Music. It feels like these four years boosted my piano skill twice much as I had accumulated in the past fifteen years.

Message to Family and Friends: I'm so grateful that my parents support my decision to study in U of R, and allow me to choose whatever I love to take. I meet those great professors who are both knowledgable and kind to share anything they know, especially professor Brendan Mort.
