Who am I?
I value many things - you can find some important ones here. Maybe with some unnecessary details, but hey, that's who I am as well!
CLARINET - my main instrument
(-s, the whole family: Eb, Bb, A, Bass). I love playing different styles, like classical, jazz, klezmer, and pop.
EDUCATION - teaching others is one of the most instructive things I have done in my life. I love transferring my knowledge to others, and learning from it at the same time.
CRAZY SOUNDS - I can make some very weird sounds. Dolphin? Coffee machine? Old school telephone? Don't even ask - it's already done. Challenge me!
PLAYING TOGETHER - I find it both very rewarding, and very important: non verbal communication and timing are amazing things to experience.
MUSIC - I mean, what can I say about it... It's one of the most important things, I think. I wouldn't know where I'd be without it.
THEATRE - drama? I'm up for it! I love telling stories, and showing others what a crazy and beautiful world it is.
ENERGY - Whatever I do, I do it with full energy: I throw myself in with all I have and work to make it happen.
HAPPINESS - I love being happy, and making others happy too. I almost always see the positive side of things.
ART - I still don't know what it is exactly: is art just for myself? Or for people around me? Maybe for the connection between them and me?
