What do you consider to be the most important ideas and concepts to impart to aspiring musicians?
I am still an aspiring musician myself, so I have no authority to give advice, but I would say:
- Be organised
- Never lose sight of why you do music
- Treat every concert as if it’s the Wigmore Hall, because you never know who might be in the audience
- Always treat your accompanist well. Because they might be able to sight-transpose.
