Trained as a percussionist since the age of 4, I have a MA in musicology from Paris University, and I am also a composer with a long experience in experimental music, sound architecture and jazz.
I take a fun but structured approach to learning crystal bowls, focusing both technical skills, both musical and therapy methodology and on breathing techniques. Lessons typically start with relaxation exercises and then move to technique and music.
