We met Dr. Roper during our 12 year old daughter's summer camp at Usdan. Her performance is angelic. Check out Usdan's website for this year's concerts. Dr. Roper's charming intelligence and her magical ways of osmosing theories and techniques to young musicians is unparalleled. According to our daughter, Dr. Roper is the best teacher in her life.
