I am a passionate pianist. For me, there is no other way to make music. The hundreds of hours spent in a practice room–working out the musical details, phrasing and choreography of a piece of music–culminate not in the hour of a recital, but in the moment of performance, in the phenomenon of translating one’s self into vibrations in the air made by an instrument to reach the ears, minds, hearts of an audience. That’s music.
I seek to understand music and society, and how their interaction builds community, enhances life, reveals truths and creates meaning.
