Mrs. Breth was unboundedly creative in thinking of ways to practice our piano repertoire. Aside from her own exercises, she always encouraged us to come up with our own methods to help us practice and drill problem spots. From Mrs. Breth’s approach to practicing, I became a better and more creative problem solver in my musical and non-musical work, and I continue to use her strategies working with a new generation of musicians.
As a Chinese immigrant, I often felt lost at school and on the playground, around those that just seemed to fit so well in American culture. However, Mrs. Breth always emphasized that music transcends all barriers. Through her, I learned that it is always possible to find a connection even between the most disparate of individuals and communities.
