May God continue to keep and bless the entire Shannon family during this difficult time period. Mrs. Shannon was a DYNAMIC woman who had amazing talents and a huge heart. She taught my siblings and I piano lessons for 22 years! Rain, sleet or shine--Mrs. Shannon had the highest expectations of us, her students, and expected us to be ready for our weekly lesson at her home and studio. She pushed us to be our best, perform our best, and reach for the stars....ALWAYS! Being great was the only option! Now, as a mother of two young children who will begin piano lessons this summer, I appreciate even more, the support and guidance that Mrs. Shannon gave all of us....on and off the piano! May you rest in peace Mrs. Shannon....we love, love, love you--your forever students! Love Always-The Sims Family. (Hellen, Zenja, Zakia, Diallo)

Mrs. Shannon was my first piano teacher in my formative years. She opened me to the world of improvisation, composition and technology in music. I owe her for shining the light on the path that my life would eventually take. She was a true revolutionary, bestowing gifts upon her students far beyond any ordinary piano teacher. Thank you, Mrs. Shannon, for everything you've given.

Mrs. Shannon taught me piano for 11 years, but beyond showing me the world of music and composition she was also a mentor, role model, and friend. She showed me unfailing patience, constant encouragement, and unconditional love. As her last student, she and Mr. Shannon felt more like family. Thank you for everything Mrs. Shannon- I look forward to singing hymns in heaven with you one day.
