The hidden jewel of her teaching is her overwhelming obsession with sight-reading. Even studio members who are now working outside of music can come back to the piano to read whatever scores they want, armed with advanced skills to help them quickly learn and perform brand new pieces.
Mrs. Breth is one of those rarest and most gifted of teachers who inspire[s her] students to work hard and think independently. Studying piano with her was not a matter of merely “receiving instruction,” but rather a natural process of “bringing forth” the music we unconsciously sensed we could create.
