Work hard, dig in and great things will happen
The music I perform best is often the music that I am the most connected with; whether that be pieces I have arranged or transcribed or worked on with a composer.
Success in music is being truly understood and respected by your musical colleagues.
Trust yourself, your values, and your ideas. At the same time, find people around you who you can trust to be honest with you and that genuinely want to help you with your development – listen to their advice. Study as much repertoire as you can and then find the pieces that you feel most passionate about.
I am someone who is in love with the multi-hued languages and dialects of musical expression!
There is no separation between life and music, so everything I experience is reflected in my performing – people I meet, places I have been, things I have read, seen, heard or tasted.
