I haven’t blogged in a while, but I wanted to share my memories of Vera Tisheff, my first principal piano teacher, who continues to teach, mentor and inspire new generations of musicians. This video is part of an ongoing series featuring Vera’s students. At the end of each interview, Vera Tisheff herself offers her own recollections of these particular students. I was fascinated and also moved by her interesting perceptions of my as a child. The title of this series, “A Singular Force,” couldn’t be more appropriate. Enjoy!
