"The important thing is not to stop questioning..... Never lose a holy curiosity"
"I never teach pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions that they can learn."
"Its' not that I'm so smart. But I stay with the questions much longer."
"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious."
"If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depends on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask....for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than 5 minutes."
These are all quote of Albert Einstein.
I have two teachers, who have helped me enormously shape my music making and beyond - who I am: Vitaly Margulis and Marlena Malas. Mr. Margulis was my piano teacher; Ms. Malas is a voice teacher that I've been playing for. They both are excellent teachers whose students are very successful, performing on stages all over the world. I owe them my aesthetics of music.
Beyond the lessons, I was so blessed and fortunate that I could spend a lot of times with these masters.
What they have common is their curiosity.
Curiosity followed by humbleness.
Awe to mystery.
Connection to spirits.
Generous to others.
