"For over a decade now, I have been working with artists and musicians to help them create & re-create their visual brand. Although I have never seriously played an instrument before**, hiding underneath my uncle’s grand piano and being enveloped by the sound while he practiced the famous Bach Goldberg Variations, Brahms and Beethoven sonatas for hours, was one of my favorite things to do as a child. The piano became my favorite secret hideout at my grandmother’s house, a familiar presence, a friendly voice. Now, not only through my work, but as the mother of young children studying an instrument, warm memories from those early days flourish daily. Consider me an honorary Suzuki Kid!
I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to collaborate with The Suzuki Alumni Project and all the dedicated individuals that are joining forces in this amazing journey!
** (Except for a 3-month run with the recorder, some basic music theory and maybe a year of choir when I was 7 or 8… my very brief -yet apparently valuable- musical education LOL!)"
