The good people at the American Viola Society honored me with a request to be one of their six Artists-in-Residence for 2019. I eagerly accepted and published a bunch of viola-related posts on their Facebook page in January and February. I made videos on a range of topics – from how to practice scales to center oneself to the performance-related books which changed my life, and so on. It was fun, although making videos on one’s smartphone and having to practice speaking clearly wasn’t! But it was great practice for me, as I’m infamous for speaking too fast. Seriously, I relished this opportunity to reach more violists in the USA and worldwide, and propagate some helpful ideas on auditions, practicing and the like.
All the videos are also available on my YouTube page.
