Tazira wrote and asked: How long have you been doing your music career ?
Hi Tazira! The short answer is – I’ve been a professional conductor for 23 years. But I’ve been a musician for a lot longer than that, and the path to become a conductor begins with learning to play an instrument. I began my love of music when my mom taught me to play violin before I even went to Kindergarten. Then I studied piano and clarinet and continue to play piano today, especially with my own children (who play violin). But I got my first actual job as a professional conductor was when I was still in my 20s in Denver, Colorado and I haven’t stopped conducting since then!
