JT Sterle: Piano Success Story

November 10, 2012

 

About J.T.

J.T. is a remakable young man with extaordinary talent. After learning to play piano on a digital piano, his parents invested in a small grand piano for him to advance his training and reach his potential as a pianist. The investment paid off quickly, as J.T. was soon placing and eventually winning in the area's most presigious piano competitions. Congratulations J.T.!

NOVEMBER, 2012

The New York State Music Teacher's Association partnered with the Homless And Traveler's Aid Society to hold a gingerbread house contest and piano marathon at the Crossgates Mall. All proceeds went to HATAS aid and prevention programs for Albany's homeless. 

J.T. was one of approximately 120 piano students from the Capital Region who got pledges from friends and family to participate in the event. About $5000 was raised.
