Ida Zelman

Teaching Artist Statement
I consider myself a very lucky person, because I do what I love the most - teach. When you first look at the music sheet it seems foreign to you. I am there for you every step of the learning process - reading the notes, feeling the rhythm, seeing the fingering, adding dynamics and finally hearing the music. It is amazing!
