This week, Mayra Calvani posted an interview of me in Blogcritics Magazine, in which we talked about how Violinist.com came to be and about the highlights of the 30 interviews that appear in the new book.
And another role reversal: Just yesterday I visited my friend Elizabeth Blake's excellent high school music program at Westlake High School in Thousand Oaks, Calif., to speak to her three orchestra classes about The Violinist.com Interviews: Volume 1 -- basically to read them stories about violinists and get them thinking about the world of the violinist, 400-year-old instruments and the performing artist's state of mind. Afterwards, a young lady came up to me and said she's like to review my book for the school newspaper…now who did this remind me of?
And yes, I'll do an interview for you and talk to your book club or high school class if I possibly can, just ask!
