Personal Statement about Training Program:
Hello! Playing the violin since I'm 10yrs old and watching my husband on the cello for 30 years, any creative process including playing an instrument has become my center of interest. Also the effects of listening and focusing are equally to important to me. Having concentrated a long time on my body developing out of many patterns, I feel ready to accompany others, also musicians.

A Sample of my Work:
'only when we are whole, we are true' Paul Klee

Do we consider ourselves as sculptures, we can or have to constantly change our point of view - to then discover that we are never the same as before. Barbara Altwegg
