I started my master studies in violin performance with Professor Morten Carlsen in autumn 2014. I had struggled for a long time with issues concerning unnecessary movement and excessive use of energy while playing. These movements got in the way of both the technical and musical aspects of my playing.
Different teachers had suggested numerous solutions, but I had a feeling that they were only addressing the symptoms, not the cause of my problems. I felt that my problems were first and foremost linked to my desire to express something. The more involved I got in my performance, the more I would move around.
