Anne Dowd

Anne was our children's first piano teacher. She started both Margaret and Steven in learning how to play. It was easy for Margaret, she enjoyed the practice without much effort. Steven had to put more work into his practice and did not find it easy!  You could see that each individual was different in their approach to learning their finger  motion skills. Each was remarkably unique! Anne later recommended me to the Johnson City Arts Council, which helped me to become involved with the City Arts community. Anne was from one of Johnson City's prominent families, the Brading Family. She did get her name changed back to Anne Brading in later days! I took this picture of our children with our dog, Princess, at Anne's home, which was just one block away from our house at the time.
