WE ARE ALL Music's CHILDRENcontinued from page 21June's Child ... Maestro Peter OundjianWholeNote MarketPlaceOver half of all TSO musicians participate ineducation programs reaching over 100,000young people each year - at RTH, Torontoschools, and recently communities such asThunder Bay, North Bay, and TimminsCompleting his third season as Music Directorof the TSO, Peter Oundjian continues to engagevigorously with musicians, audiences andmusical life. He lives in Toronto with his wifeNadine and their two children, Lara and Peter.The youngest of five, with an Armenianfather and English mother, Peter Oundjianwas born in Toronto. They moved to England,where he later attended the Royal Collegeof Music, when he was a child.I had lessons in both piano and violin. Actually,right at the time that picture was taken Iswitched from piano to violin. Also important -I sang in a wonderful choir at school - BenjaminBritten used the choir to make a few recordingson Decca. Music was a very normalthing for me, as natural as breathing andeating. I made music every day, at home andat school, and it was part of who I was.Around age JO or 11, I remember startingan essay with "Being a violinist ... " I don 't rememberthe rest of the sentence, but, I still rememberstarting it with those 3 words. At 14and 15, I did want to become a professionalsoccer player more than anything else. Then, 1developed a strong interest in modern languages.But all the while I was practisingvery many hours a day, and performing frequently.This seemed like normal life. Itwasn't until age 17 that I decided to do this.Peter was first violinist of the renowned TokyoString Quartet for 14 years. Currently in his26th year as a visiting professor at the YaleSchool of Music, he is also Principal GuestConductor and Artistic Advisor of the DetroitSymphony, and Artistic Advisor and PrincipalConductor of the Caramoor Festival.I would encourage everyone to expose youngpeople to great music of all kinds. But it'spossible to develop a love for music at anystage of life I have come across quite a fewpeople who love music profoundly, butweren't exposed to it until later.Try to imagine that you could time traveland meet the little boy in that photo ...I would tell him that if you truly want to becomea performing musician, let your ownconviction lead the way. Remember that youwill experience disappointments: you mustrise above them and be strong.JULY 1 - S EPTEMBER 7 2007EducationPIANO LESSONS·Over 40 years in business,all levels.• Extremely effective, low-costpreparation for RCM exams,competitions, concerts, etc.-,; ·from for Y, hour.r-1 ° Immediate results, or you don't pay!Vladimir Dounin 416·321·5627bethebestinmusic@yahoo.comMAESTRO DANIEL*Twenty years teaching Classical Vocal Techniquein Toronto*Specialty: Training and developing the large operaticvoice, "a dying breed" according to theN.Y.
