Edna Golandsky has been the single most influential figure in my career as a violinist. Her willingness to work with me, a violinist, moving out of familiar territory with the body of knowledge of piano technique in which she is so well versed, is a testament to her agility and generosity. The instruction she has given me over the last twelve years has transformed my own playing, my teaching and as a result, the entire trajectory of my career. Now, professional string players, students and children are now benefiting from her knowledge and instructional techniques. Under her tutelage and guidance, I have been able to put careers back together after injuries, and set young string players out on a new path. I feel privileged to be able to carry Edna’s work forward and to help to expand it beyond into other instruments.
