    When I came to Giselle back in October of 2015, I could barely play the piano. My hands and wrists were injured because my technique was incorrect, and it was harming my hands the more I attempted to play. When I started with Giselle, the whole world of music opened and bloomed. I found a new, intense interest in the wonders of the piano and I discovered a whole different side of love for music. I used to think that piano was so repetitive; with Giselle, it became a cathartic release of emotion. I could get lost in the world of music for hours if I had the time, and it's solely due to the way Giselle helped guide me to use the piano as an vessel to release beautiful, harmonious music. I can never thank her enough for all that she has done for me.
