I Teach


If you are interested in private lessons from Leslie, please contact her via email. Happy, satisfied references are available.

For example:

Before moving back to New York, I asked my 13-year old piano student what — if anything — she learned in our time together.

She hugged her knees to her chest on the creaky, wooden piano bench.

“Other than piano, I’ve learned a lot of different things,” she responded, pensively. “Life isn’t exactly a movie. There are stories out there that aren’t princess fairy tales. And that can happen to me, but I would be able to go on. I would look back and think, ‘I remember Leslie. She was so strong.'”

I stared at her, in awe. 

She continued, listing her hopes and dreams for me in New York.

“I hope you get on Broadway, because I feel you deserve it. I hope you meet the right person, because I also feel you deserve him. Just don’t date anyone you meet in a bar. I hope you enjoy your time in New York but I also hope you come back. Maybe you’ll go on to be a movie star, and then you can include me in your Golden Globe speech.”

We both laughed, and I tried hard to fight back a few tears. 13-year old piano student placed her fingers above the keys, ready to play her warm-up scales. She turned back to me for a moment.

“By the way, do me a favor. If you DO end up meeting the right guy and get married, can I be your bridesmaid?”
