What is your favorite piece, performer, or composer for your instrument:
EH: Don’t make me choose! So many good ones! But I confess that it wouldn’t be Schubert. I especially love early 20th century composers from all over the world.
What is your favorite musical word:
EH: Lusingando: in a coaxing, caressing, flattering, or alluring style
What is something about you that most people don’t know:
EH: I like to collect geodes! Also, I want to be a dancer!
What is your favorite concert you’ve given or attended:
EH: I just watched David Byrne’s “American Utopia” on tv and thought it was awesome. Also went to see “The Last Ship” at the Ahmanson before the shutdown. Sting wrote it and also was in it! A wonderful musical.
What do you like most about teaching:
EH: I love teaching because each of my students is incredibly intelligent and engaging. They are fantastic human beings! They are all creative, but in different ways, which makes it fun and challenging to help each problem solve and play to their strengths. It also helps me play better too, I hope!
