This month, we’re excited to feature Piano student Eliza Cooley!

Eliza attends University School and is in the fourth grade. She is a student of Ms. Esther and here is what she had to say about Eliza:

“Eliza is a pleasure to teach! She always comes ready to play at her lesson despite all the other activities she has going on. She plays with such musicality as we explore new music and new ideas. I’m excited to see where her musical journey goes!”

Read our interview with Eliza below!

How long have you taken piano lessons?

I have taken piano lessons since I was in Kindergarten (four years).

What do you love about playing piano?

I love being able to play all different kinds and styles of music on the piano. I probably love playing jazz the most.

What do you like about Flourish?

I like that all of the lessons are in person instead of online. It is great to be able to perform all the time and do group lessons. I like my teacher.


What is your favorite music to play or listen to? 

I like to listen to Pop Culture radio, Country heat radio, or music by Rhianna. My favorite artists are Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Olivia Rodrigo, and Rhianna.

What else do you like to do?

I like to dance, draw, hang out with friends, and spend time with family.
