Gillian has played the piano almost all her life. In her piano studio(est. 2001), she believes in building good foundations and working with students according to their learning style – each person has a unique set of likes and strengths. She cut her solo debut album(a compendium of Bach, Beethoven, Brahms etc) while working in the Seattle, Washington area nearly 10 years ago. Once upon a time, she received her Bachelor of Arts in piano from Taylor University, followed by a Masters in Piano Pedagogy & Performance from Southern Methodist University. Aside from music, Gillian appreciates good design, the arts in all its forms, other cultures and a good laugh.
