Just Stop Scrolling! 21 seconds which might change your life… All you have to do is this ask yourself a great question: why are you so incredibly successful as an independent, passionate, professional violinist or violist:
1. Is it because you are doing what everybody else does? Potentially competing with one million of colleagues, fighting everyone for the same few prizes, gigs, jobs, teaching, teaching, teaching, rehearsing, rehearsing, rehearsing…. or
2. Is it because you are doing something very, very different? Competing no one, specially because there is no one, discovering an ocean of music, getting and deliberately creating better gigs, getting better paid, helping others raise money, making an even bigger contribution into music?
What suites you best: 1 or 2?
Hey, something else… You probably don't like bloody scenes of violence in movies and potentially you like blue ocean and lovely beaches for your holidays, yes or no?
But for your professional life… Why do you potentially chose the bloody shark tank of the OME (Official Music Establishment)?
I am puzzled… Puzzled already 25 years.
Please, help me understand.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. Ralph Waldo Emerson Read
It seems such a no brainer… Yet you see only a tiny minority of adults actually doing it. And no wonder, they leave a trail.
So… what are you going to do? Fight, fight, fight and potentially vanish without a trace other than carbon footprint or leave a trail?
You do not need to be giant (not physically anyway).
You do not need to be German to play German music.
You do not need to be Italian to revive a part of Italian culture.
I mean… what if Italians will never even show up for their own culture?
It took a great Catalan person named Casals to prove the reputed experts that the Cello Suites written by a great German composer was Music… not just a weird unplayable excercise.
It took a great Flemish musician Sigiswald Kuijken to revive the Italian Violoncello da spalla.
It took many sleepless nights for an Italian string expert Mimmo Peruffo to create the first set of concert quality strings.
It took a number of very normal, physically not giant, musicians from different corners of the world to become ambassadors for music traditions to stay here with you, alive rather than vanish without trace, and enrich you too when you give yourself a permission.
It's this tiny mind shift where huge magic finally starts to happen.
Is more magic and even more sense of happiness welcome in your professional and maybe personal life, yes or no?
If your answer is YES, do you agree, you just need a vehicle to get you there, yes or no?
This is why I am so passionate about the vehicle I created. And I am here to help and answer all your qestions.
