My name is Alexandra Turchinsky. I was raised in Queens and have always felt like the city belonged to me. I guess we all do in a way; that is the beauty of New York. I am a kindergarten teacher-I find this important to share because the way I define myself as an educator is part of why I wanted to create this piano. What I see with my students through the power of music is the ability to make the world beautiful and exciting. I am a creator, a storyteller, and a community builder, and I have decided to practice my artistry through education and collaboration.
