Prior to my lessons with Edna, playing the piano felt like combat. When I first came to her, I pointed to a passage that I’d been struggling with for years. Edna showed me a few things and I tried the passage again. She then asked her famous question, “How’s that?”
I paused for a second and said: “So easy!”
She said: “Imagine, with this technique, anything can feel like that.”
Since then, every lesson with Edna has been a revelation. She shares her broad knowledge with love and generosity, combined with a laid back approach and a sense of humor. Thanks to her, I have managed to play pieces that I never dreamed I would be able to. She changed my life.
