Mrs. McCarthy is a wonderfully inspirational teacher. What I’ve particularly appreciated over the years is her understanding; no matter what you seek from your piano experience, she is there to give you unequivocal support and encouragement. She will push you and give advice to help you grow, but will also provide room for you to explore your own interpretations of your art. And you will have fun, because Mrs. McCarthy’s enthusiasm for her work is so infectious! My love for music and piano has never ceased to grow under her caring tutelage. I feel so grateful to have known her as an educator and a friend.
