College Audition Time
I can still picture her at age four playing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” from her first Suzuki Violin book. Her teacher could not convince her to stand up straight! She’s come so far by playing in famous venues such as; Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Symphony Space and many more. Tonight she is preparing her professional pre-screen audition video for college. She’s got a new bow in hand and a bright outlook for the future.
Break-a-leg… you got this!

A Return to Symphony Space
The students played Shostakovich. It was an incredible evening. It felt wonderful to return to Symphony Space in Manhattan.

How to Fix the Pinky
Today I used a new technique for my student to encourage relaxation of the fifth finger. I put a googly eye sticker on it! Rather than ask repeatedly to curve the pinky, the sticker did the trick. In fact, it was a lightly amusing way to encourage good form!
Keep your children happily playing!
