I have been blessed to perform solo with so many orchestras all around the world. Yes it's an amazing feeling. I have been teaching for the past four years and yes that's amazing as well. But NOTHING in my whole career empowered me more than playing solo with an orchestra with my own student! That's that magical moment when this ten-year-old little kid you met four years ago, becomes your colleague! You feel like you have touched someone's life and you made a difference. You changed their life for the better and forever! He learned everything he knew from you and soon you know that he will be better than you. Raphael will be rehearsing this piece very soon with legendary #AnneAkikoMeyers !!! So much love this little nugget. Have a great week you all!
