One definition of a term “conductor” is "a body capable of transmitting energy." I love this definition. As a conductor of an orchestra, I facilitate the transmission of energy from the music to the audience, through my interpretation and my fellow musicians' commitments.
As an educator, I strive to provide the students,
- opportunities to perform a variety of music through meaningful programming,
- encouraging environment which allows them to explore their full potential as artists, and
- engaging rehearsal process to flourish and to achieve a great sense of accomplishment.
As a leader, I often compare myself to my late dog Maggie Moo, a Border Collie mix. I aspire to be a leader who creates a safe and inspiring environment for the musicians to perform courageously and thrive as artists.
Music nourishes my soul, and yoga helps connect and maintain a balance of my soul, mind, and body. I lead yoga practices for musicians to bring awareness to the mind and body connection, healthier lifestyle, and mindfulness.
