My approach

Concert performance students need to be very aware of "where" the problem is in the score and "what" the problem is. This is the first starting point of my teaching, and here I fully engage with my students without offering my own interpretation as "the solution".

I see it as my job to help students in a way that is as coherent as possible with their own personal choices and interpretations of the score.
