  • Dear Heidi, I have been listening to your podcasts. Rachel’s talk with you Number 129 was the best yet. She was so clear and genuine in her thought processes. I live in the UK. I am totally blind and my first career was as a physio. I had a flute given to me for my 40th birthday. I took some grade exams plus a teaching Diploma and have been teaching since the late 1990’s. In 2011, I started training as a Suzuki flute teacher. i am now taking level 5, the top level. i have had to write a thesis of my choice. i have chosen the title ‘Effective practice for a successful performance.’ A very open ended topic, but race has given me much food for thought. Please get in touch with me. my email is the same as my website. Thank you for the podcasts and all their content.
