“My primary goal as an educator is to help my students to be creative musicians and critical thinkers. Therefore one of the fundamental part of my pedagogical work is to make them think beyond the clarinet and be inspired by the musical approaches of voice and other music instruments. To reach these capabilities we need to establish the technical skills of the performers by doing customized exercises and mental training. Moreover it is very important to me to support talent by sharing practical knowledge about classical music profession and to introduce them to the requirements and realities of classical music industry.”
