15-year old Alexis Zou attends Lake Oswego High School and 16-year old Hansen Barrett goes to West Linn High School.  Their piano teacher, Renato Fabbro, suggested that they might both benefit from being in a piano duo together.  They’ve been a duet for just one year, but they’ve already amassed quite a list of accomplishments.  The two talk this week with Christa Wessel about the challenges of playing with another pianist, and what resulting benefits they’ve seen in their own musicianship.

Alexis and her YouTube Channel, Dream Piano, can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU_bceVx_skLXrH9hro2YIQ

Her blog, The Art of Self Care is here: https://alexiszou07.wixsite.com/selfcare. The Art of Self Care is a blog she made to spread awareness about the importance of self care, as well as share discoveries and reflections about music and art’s connection to self care.
