I feel very privileged to be a student of Mrs. Sylvia Furash. My grandson and I have been studying with Mrs. Furash for almost two years. She has students of varying levels and ages.
Both Matthew and I have improved greatly since we began our lessons. She encourages us to understand the meaning of each passage, follow the dynamics of the composer and then to play each piece with the passions of our heart. It is not only in playing the correct notes, but to feel the music with your being that you bring the piece to life.
Mrs. Furash is a dedicated, gifted teacher, never letting you get away with shortcuts or mistakes. She has a lot of patience and a deep love of music. When you complete a piece of music, you know that you are playing it the way it was meant to be played and that gives a great sense of accomplishment.
Sylvia is not only my piano teacher; she is my mentor, as well. Learning the piano has taught me many things about life…discipline, being mindful and the enjoyment of the music all around us!
