Receiving Top Prizes

in competitions, the goal of both Dr. Kaminska and Dr. Bowlby to ensure that all students have strong and healthy technique and develop love of music regardless of their future chosen career. Competition preparation must take a second seat to proper training, with a well-rounded foundation.
