To teach is to feed the student, and to feed yourself. It is a two-way process that has always inspired me. I love enabling students to be able to communicate through their playing. To be able to master a piece technically is a vital part of performance. If you can also express what you want to say using a wide variety of tone colour and sound quality in your playing, you can perhaps transcend what can be said in words. As a teacher, I see my most important role as enabling the student to have the tools to express themselves in this way.
