As a multi-instrumentalist I am classically trained and perform on over 20 instruments including the piano, harp, zither and flute to name a few. Some of the instruments I play are rare, or obsolete but hold incredible musical expressivity.
I have performed with both invented and traditional instruments at conferences and concerts globally both in person and via telepresence.
From the beginning>
A musician at heart, I started playing the piano at age 2½, was accepted into the Heidelberg Music Conservatory at 5 (pictured) and performed for hospitals, charities and benefit concerts world wide ever since.
Seeing the positive impact of music and health early on I am grateful to explore these intersection as a neuroscientist and musician.
Over 100 live performances including the GRAMMYs Youth Showcase, The United Nations, BBKing Blues Club, Hollywood Improv, Room 5, The UK’s Corpus Christi Concert Hall, The Heidelberg Music Conservatory and Comic Con. Also featured on Stanford University Soundtrack | VOL 10, 2011 #7, Album: Publisher: BMI, London, UK, Los Angeles, CA.
