I am very excited. Being a working musician who never had formal training and being mostly self taught my lessons with Bo Pang have been challenging but I am noticing improvements in my playing daily following her instruction. I feel like a child discovering my instrument over and over every day. I would love to study music in a collegiate setting and I know studying with Bo Pang will put me on the right track she is an excellent teacher.
