STUDENT SUCCESS STORY​


Quote

Studying with Mr. Shihor wasn’t just an ordinary career development process, it was an unforgettable life changing journey. Words could never explain how thankful and grateful I am to have met such an amazing teacher and mentor, who helped me realize that in order to grow, I have to let go of self-limiting beliefs, and let my mind and aspirations rise to greater heights. Looking back to 2017, I still can’t believe how much I’ve grown and matured, not just as a pianist, but also as a person.
 
Throughout the past three years, Mr. Shihor has never failed to bring out the best in me. He often understood me better than I did myself. His unconditional belief and optimism toward my abilities encouraged me to see beyond the impossible, and his endless support and tremendous details to music helped me understand, feel, and hear music in a whole other level. Mr. Shihor’s dedication on making my dreams possible pushed me to work harder, give out everything I have, and become the best version of myself.
 
Aside from everything, Mr. Shihor is more than just an amazing teacher and mentor. He is a warm-hearted, fun, funny, and caring individual who has played a big role in my life. I could never thank him enough for everything he has done for me.   
 
Thank you, Mr. Shihor, for being there for me each and everyday. I’m really grateful to have you help me get into a wonderful college with a large scholarship. I wouldn’t be able to go this far without you.
