Hi – I’m Lorian but you can call me Lo. I started playing piano when I was seven but now I’m twelve and heading into Grade 7 at Gracefield Public School. My first piano teacher was an amazing classical piano teacher from Russia, Elnara Biktimirova. Elnara taught me the basics of note-reading and playing. I entered the Kiwanis Music Festival in St Catharines when I was nine and won a scholarship for $100. We moved to a new house in Port Dalhousie 18 months ago and I started learning with a new piano teacher named Ms. Irene. She has been a lovely teacher and is giving me good material. She has helped me to develop my repertoire. I have to memorize all the songs! Even though it is hard, I get to have something of a treasure chest full of songs that I have memorized. I’m sad to be missing the Jazz Youth Festival finals in person but wishing everyone good luck! It’s been nice to meet you. Goodbye.
