Leann has performed publicly in more than 25 master classes for world famous pianists/musicians.  She received her Bachelor of Music degree from The Juilliard School and is currently pursuing a Master of Music degree there.  At Juilliard, she is a Teaching Fellow in the Piano Minor Department as well as a Teaching Assistant for Piano Literature.  She is a past recipient of the Gary J.
