My most memorable performance...There have been many, one that comes to mind, as it was quite unusual, was miming onstage (marimba) for Her Majesty The Queen in 2011.

My most terrifying/embarrassing onstage moment ... I had a slight memory blank in a solo performance for around 2,000 people which was rather scary. Thankfully I recovered fairly quickly.
My dream recital ... I would love to perform on the cimbalom with Roby Lakatos and his ensemble anywhere in the world.
Sunday afternoons are normally spent ... Doing whatever the day requires - recently spent learning music.
The one piece of music I would show to convince someone of the power of music ...Too hard to name only one!
My coffee is ... My coffee is almost anything else - I don't like coffee and have never had a full cup.
