Traveling to another country is always an exhilarating experience, however teaching in a foreign environment is invaluable. In my efforts to provide the history and traditions passed on to me from my own teachers from around the world, I was allowed to achieve a higher level of craftsmanship in my playing and teaching.
I found the time at Iberacademy to not only benefit my teaching and playing, but also another opportunity to better understand the world and others. As an artist I can’t think of any opportunity more useful. Working with the students in Miami and Medellin was a special experience that reminded me of the joys of teaching and the importance of cultural exchanges.
I can’t wait to go back to such a special place.
