Musicians to help them improve their playing by tackling musical and interpretive issues. I can help you prepare for solo performances, recitals and auditions. Chamber music is a particular passion of mine, and I would like to coach any ensemble that feels it could benefit from my many years of experience playing duos, trios, quartets, etc.
In some ways I enjoy coaching more than teaching. We focus purely on musical concerns. After all, if a pianist wanted help with a Brahms intermezzo, I’d have nothing to offer from the pianistic standpoint. Nevertheless, I have a lot to offer from the musical standpoint, having studied and played Brahms’ music for years.
The same holds true with other styles and genres. I have much to learn myself, but I do have over forty years of music study and performance to share with anyone who is interested.
