Music is......

Back and I am missing Tokyo already... oh I love Japan!!!!

First thing after a week's break



Music is love in search of a word

~ Sidonie Gabrielle



Clare with her piano teacher Ted Joselson when she was 8



Ted was a Steinway Artists, moved to Singapore few years ago, it was Ted who spotted Clare's talent and said to us, Singapore is too small for her, go to New York City, go to The Juilliard School. It was his encouragement that we make that move to auditioned at The Juilliard, that leads to the move to NYC.
