  • I believe this lovely lady was my piano teacher at Huddersfield Polytechnic during the 1970s. I'm pretty good on faces, but I may be wrong, and I'd love to know for certain that this was she. If she is indeed that lady, she was a super teacher, and I taught piano myself for over 30 years until retirement, often referring back to her inspiration in my own teaching.
