HOW I MET Felix Deak Last year she passed away and I will miss her greatly. What advice, above all, would you give to someone looking for a teacher for a child, or for themselves? Eve Take the time to try a variety of teachers for a period of time to see if they are the right teacher for you. Every student and teacher relationship is different. It is in the unique chemistry between student and teacher that makes for the best learning/teaching environment. Matt My only general advice to people starting out is to tell them to determine what the fundamentals are and to get them down properly before embarking on a career. Unfortunately you set the standard before you start getting hired. Once you are a working musician it gets increasingly difficult to get back to basics due to a lack of time. Sometimes that extra year or two of study will pay off in a big way down the line. Felix One thing I remember clearly is that she never pushed me or pressured me to practise or be a soloist. She was interested in me having fun afld enjoying the instrument. The same goes for my amazing parents! I think that is a huge reason why I am STILL playing the best instrument ever. And loving it. 4 - WWW, THEWHOLENOTE.COM MY TEACHER continued from page 41 yourself. ... ... And a final word from Matt What makes a good teacher is interesting, but more interesting perhaps is what makes a good student. I think we put too much responsibility on the backs of the teachers when the bulk of the work has to come from the individual anyway. Most the great musicians I know are largely self . taught. Teachers point the way but you still have to get the work done *** You can hear Eve Egoyan in concert Sunday Nov 7 at 2pm . playing a single movement work, written especially for her: "Asking" by Spanish/German composer Maria de Alvear.
