My Musical Influences
My musical influences are very well rounded: I believe in Bach as my mentor, Beethoven as my symphonic thinking inspiration, Chopin as my poetic and aristocratic God, Rachmaninoff as my soul and emotions. I have a lot of musical influences, they are endless and change with my mood, life phase, inspiration. I love sharing my musical influences with my students!
