Testimonials – The Conscious Musician Seminar in Toronto

“I feel much more confident and relaxed when I perform. I have a clear idea in my mind about the pieces I play. Now my relationship with music is fantastic and powerful. I have a closer and deeper relationship with the violin. I discovered in The Conscious Musician Seminar thar my mission as an artist is to help people to forget in a concert about their problems and touch their hearts”

Rogerio Pérez, bachelor in violin University of Veracruz

“My relationship with music has become much deeper. When I do visual motor rehearsal, I can see the pieces from above and understand how to phrase a musical piece. I see the violin to connect with other dimensions, to connect with the source of each musical work. I don’t compare my self any more with other violinists. I now believe that my mission as an artist is to show the audience other realities where they can also connect with the source of music and transform themselves in a musical event. I have become a sonic character on the stage and feel in my heart every emotion I want to express.”

Rosa Romero, bachelor’s in music education University of Veracruz

“Rosa and Rogerio played so beautifully and with such passion and precisión at the presentation of The Conscious Musician Seminar in Toronto. All the students were fantastic!”

Jacqui O’Casey, Iyengar teacher
