Playing violin was always important to me but teaching was also important. I find true joy in passing onto someone else the information that I had that would make them enjoy
the activity more.
When it comes to teaching, I emphasize 'efficient' practicing involving a mindful approach to technique and musicality -- that includes mindful breathing and mindful letting of the self do how it is naturally wired to do without adding extra, unnecessary tension, both physical and emotional.
For both my younger and mature students, I aim to guide them find the right set up and technique to fit their individual bodies through this mindful approach. To cultivate their unique musical voice, I work with them to develop attentive listening skills with an understanding of the theoretical analysis and historical background of the music they are working on.
