"I have a student working on Silbo who came to me with serious gaps in their technique and musical knowledge. The piece was a big challenge, but they are so passionate about the music and so inspired to work hard, that they have really stepped up to meet that challenge in ways I wouldn't have expected. A big part of that excitement is being one of the first people to play the piece, and getting to see videos of the composer perform her own work. The piece is also incredibly well written, and helps make my student sound like a virtuoso even at this intermediate level. I am very impressed with the works! I hope to assign the Lament to another student after the holiday break."
"I immediately began working on both pieces with students in my class. They have been very excited to work on music by people who they see actively performing and serving as leaders in our field."
