I played for Sir James Galway. It’s sort of hard to wrap my head around something so big, but–there it is. I have been blessed with the experience of playing for a living legend. I’m so glad he was able to come and teach a masterclass at UNCSA, and excited my studio was able to raise the money to get him to come.
Sir Jame’s advice? Practice scales, practice embouchure, practice diminuendos, practice hand and finger technique. Never forget the big picture.
