Why in the world did I pick fencing...

and how does fencing help craft me into a most excellent piano instructor?

Well, it helps to explain first that I am a champion.

Art is offensive to many, but sacred to more.

This morning, while reading the comments on a favorite FB group to which I belong, I learned that an artist had posted a controversial piece she had completed, and was asked to take it down because it offended someone (many?--this part was unclear).

Q&A: What do I do when I don't feel like practicing?

Question: Some days, I'm eager to practice, and on those days my music flows well. Other days, it's all I can do to do sit at the bench.

How do you motivate yourself on those days you just feel bad and don't want to ask your body to do anything?


Be ok with feeling terrible and just do it badly.

How does diet help on stage?

Most of my life, I've eaten well balanced diets. Yes, I do indulge in the occasional fast food, and I'm known for loving desserts--even eating them before the actual meal--but for the most part, I am aware of how I feel after I eat, and therefore I eat accordingly.
