Yup, I just did that. I promised you happiness.
The happiness when you step down a stage, certain that you played how you know yourself.
The joy after a fantastic practice session where you feel just great, physically and mentally.
The delight when you notice your student is playing differently because he or she is actually listening differently.
Most of us seek more holistic approaches to performing and teaching. But this idea is worthless if we can't apply it in our music and our everyday lives.
That's where I come in.
I can show you how to apply this holistic intention in your practical experience, finally, once and for all.
This industry is seeking strong artistic personalities more than ever, it seeks new audiences who engage with music (i.e. your students), but it keeps asking for perfection, which is the exact opposite.
This game is flawed, and you don't need to play it.
You and I work together with your instrument, on your playing (o singing) itself, giving you the tools to achieve what you're looking for: more ease, joy, and freedom on stage, in the classroom and in your practice room.
Think of it as an instrument lesson, but without the fluff, without the teacher's ego and without the BS. I'm fiercely on your side - and promise to support you with my experience as a teacher and performer.
My work is for people who are seeking answers, who are longing to know what's possible. I don't teach technique. I teach what goes beyond that. I teach organics.
Do you want to know more? See how we could work together.
