We love our students! They inspire us, they challenge us, they make us laugh and smile. But most importantly, they are each wonderful, unique individuals getting ready to go out into the world and make amazing things happen! That’s why we are highlighting one of our amazing students every month.

This month we are featuring not one, but TWO of our awesome students: Brother-Sister team, Anthony & Gianna!

Anthony and Gianna are both confident and dedicated young musicians who have been a part of The Harmony Garden for nearly their entire lives.  Anthony, now ten, and Gianna, now seven, both began their musical journeys in our Kindermusik classes when they were just tiny toddlers.  They both started piano around the age of five, and have been rock n’ rolling ever since!  Anthony is full of enthusiasm, often heard exclaiming “I want to play it again!” and “can we learn something new today?”  Gianna is always making us laugh, often inserting funny new words and sounds into her songs, and her favorite note is G because it is the first letter of her name.
