Congratulations to our March Student of Month – Joanne Mathew!

SOTM postcard Mar 14


Twelve year old Joanne Mathew loves music, dance and singing. She started taking keyboard lessons at a young age. In October 2012, when she got serious about playing the keyboard, she joined Taalim and has been learning under Mark Buccheri in Piscataway, New Jersey.  Since then, her technical knowledge and playing skills have improved significantly.

She says, “I love music! For me, being able to play something – a full piece or just two chords – on the keyboard / piano that make a grand sound is so much fun and it gives me a great feeling inside.” In addition to playing the keyboard, she also does ballet. She aspires to be a great artist in dance and music.
