This is a letter that my colleague, Julian Fisher, director of the Toronto School for Strings and Piano, kindly allowed me to share on the blog. The letter was eloquently written to Julian by an adult music student. The event described happened over a decade ago at the student’s Royal Conservatory of Music viola exam, in which Julian was her adjudicator. What a fantastic reminder to music teachers and music students of any age – especially those preparing for a performance, exam or an assessment of any sort – of what playing music is really about: the Heart.
