What has been the happiest moment of your life so far?
Wow. I guess when my kids were born, you know? That was pretty good.
What has been the saddest moment of your life so far?
When my nephew was hit by a car.
What is your biggest struggle right now?
Gee. My biggest struggle right now is this guy that didn’t show up for a lesson that we scheduled.
When was the last time you tried something new?
The last time I tried something new? Well, I do try new things now and then... I try new music all the time. I get new pieces that I perform with the North Carolina Symphony. I try new food, you know, new books. New stuff all the time.
What is your favorite place in Chapel Hill?
Well, I’d have to say my studio where I teach.
