Philosophy

“In my teaching I like to emphasize the development of individual and personal interpretations with the help of mental and emotional input and flexibility in performance technique. Particularly special is the bel-canto piano style, which is extremely important above all for the works of the Romantic era, in which a meticulous technical and structural development is crucial.

But my priority as a teacher is to cultivate an atmosphere of humorous informality in my relationship with each individual student, with concentrated focus and sympathetic warmth, in order to build up and maintain mutual trust, so that each student’s individual artistic personality can develop and truly blossom.”
