I have met many inspiring people during my piano studies, yet there has been one teacher who tought me how to make music – this was czech Prof.Jiri Hlinka. Today I pass on much of the “know how” i learned from him in HeliStudio. Jiri Hlinka Klaverakademiet organizes masterclasses led by Jiri’s ex-students, now internationally acclaimed pianists – Leif Ove Andsnes, Havard Gimse, Geir Botnen.
One of my personal idols in the world of music pedagogy is conductor, author and public speaker Benjamin Zander. Mr. Zander’s passion and enthusiasm tell me that music is the vitamine M and our mission as musicians is to share and spread this positive effect.To get the best results as a conductor mr. Zander asks himself:”Who am I being that my players eyes are not shining?”
This is very powerful question to keep in mind during any kind of teaching process in the classroom or in the piano lesson.
I am very proud to promote my homeland Estonia. We are often referred to as the “singing nation”. Throughout the history of our country, music has been a way to hold on to the Estonian identity and language.
The will to preserve ones traditions and language lies in the idea of breathing together as one nation. Singing is a way to breath together.Here is a short film about the importance of Estonian Song Celebration . The uniqueness of this mesmerising event has even earned the song and dance celebration a place at UNESCO’s prestigious list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
