Drawing on the teachers who most influenced her own daily practice - most notably Kenny Werner, whose 'Effortless Mastery' fundamentally changed her approach to the instrument - Holly brings her experience as an eternal student to her instruction, taking baby steps on the path to joyous music making . Players of all backgrounds and confidence levels are welcome !
Over the course of her 35 + years as a freelance pianist, Holly has found herself in countless rehearsals and gigs both as a leader and as sideman . Through these many and varied calls she developed strategies for sight reading and what makes a good chart - i.e., one which presents exactly what the leader wants first time through . She has developed workshops on these topics, as well as a general practice workshop, which details the most effective methods for the retention of material . Contact her for more info .
