Artistic Statement

I am, in general, a somewhat shy and reserved person. However, when I am in front of a group of people and play a piece that I have been working tirelessly to improve, I feel as though a part of me that is normally confined or subdued may blossom into something beautiful. The one place I feel truly "comfortable," if it is thought to be possible, is on a stage. I love to feel as though I am telling a story with my flute, and that I can connect with the audience on an extremely emotional level. Music also gives me a way to express emotions that I would otherwise not have. Music and performing, for me, is a fusion of passion, therapy of sorts, and entertainment.
