Hi, I’m Sammie - a pianist, a creator, a teacher.
Music has been apart of my life since I was a child. My mother, Dr. Suman Sharma, a concert sitarist, encouraged me early on to learn piano, which changed the course of my life.
While attending Hollins University, I was active in the local Valley Chamber Orchestra, playing both piano and violin; was the staff accompanist at a local Brethren Church, playing congregational hymns, interludes, preludes, and postludes.
In May 2017, I received my teaching certificate & earned a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance. I took rigorous courses in music theory, music history, sight singing and ear training, piano pedagogy, piano literature, ensemble preparation, and piano technique; which has prepared me for today, as I teach others through in-home lessons.
