Four decades of studying, performing, teaching, and collaborating with singers and instrumentalists are summarized and presented in the Playing the Piano and Working with Singers sections below in the form of observations and suggestions.

Please keep in mind that music is far more than thoughts and guidelines; music is about inspiration, emotion, and communication — all the qualities that make us uniquely human.
