What is pursuing music career? It is finding your own place in this world, where you can enjoy what you do and share your passion and talent to make this a better place for everyone. This is what I tell my students: "There is certainly a place for each one of you, and you are all desperately needed."
It is a great pleasure to see my students are becoming increasingly interested in taking advantage of various musical opportunities around them. Last night, they organized and drove themselves to the Blair School of Music in Nashville to attend a recital by Mr. Shifrin while I was in Tech Rehearsal for the upcoming "Halloween" Concert by our faculty quintet. I am very excited that my students got to experience what I was fortunate to do during my student years.
