Anne has helped me explore playing the piano for 15+ years. She has provided valuable insight to the composer’s intention, technique, and the ability to listen to the nuances of tone and pedal.
Her own wonderful playing talent has always been an inspiration for me to learn new pieces, relearn old ones, and play them even half as well as she does. Ultimately, her guidance as a music teacher brings home the reward of creativity, stress relief, and a deeply satisfying emotional outlet.
I am especially grateful Anne recently discovered an unusually wonderful Steinway which is now a daily hands-on experience for me.”

Through duets, workshops, and recitals I have enjoyed collaborating with like-minded students who appreciate music as much as I do.

Mrs. Russell has taught me much more than how to play the piano. She’s taught me the power of patience, perseverance, and most importantly an inexplicable sense of appreciation for music that I will carry with me throughout my entire life.”
