Instructor Brianna Smith has been involved with music her whole life. Over the years, her experiences in music as a student have included Kindermusik, choir, handbells, band (flute), and of course, piano lessons. She became a Certified Music Educator with Simply Music in 2009 and has been teaching piano with this method ever since. Brianna graduated with a BA in Music in May 2018. She began teaching piano at Cadek Conservatory in August 2018.
