Be creative, believe in yourself, in what you do, in your ideas
To communicate a story and feelings with music and someone being able to receive it and feel it all. It’s such a powerful thing.
There’s an excitement about working with a large group of people and the special sound that you can create
I think that the greatest challenge is also my greatest inspiration: to convey to the audience what has touched me in a musical piece
I try to always look towards the “next thing” and not get stuck on pride of past achievements
From the perspective of a musician’s craft, success as a performer would be to be able to perform a piece as you imagine it in your inner ear.
