“As an artist today, performing and teaching are like a two-sided coin. When invited as a guest artist throughout the year, I have opportunities to give a solo or chamber recital and present a masterclass for the students. I find this fascinating to me because I can verbalize both through my music and words. I treasure movements when students find discoveries and enlightenment about their music, identity and life through music.”
