April’s Student Spotlight is shining on Reilly Cate Ferguson. One of our favorite things about Reilly Cate is her love of performance – she once hosted a private recital for her family and friends, and she prepared a piano piece for the Steinway Piano Fun Contest. Her initiative and drive are two of her qualities that make her a great student. Her Piano Mentor, Leah Taylor, says that Reilly Cate is a “bright spot in her week”. We couldn’t agree more! Thanks for being awesome, Reilly Cate!
