PIANO STUDENT TIP OF THE DAY...
TIP ONE

"PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST COMMON MISTAKES MADE BY PIANISTS OF ALL LEVELS...EVEN ME, ..IN THE PAST...OTHER
THAN PROPER SEATING  AND POSITIONING
OF THE HANDS AT THE PIANO...IS THE
EYE SIGHT PROBLEM.

LET ME EXPLAIN, MANY PIANISTS AND STUDENTS MAKE A MISTAKE RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING OF THEIR TRAINING AND IT
FOLLOWS THEM THEIR WHOLE LIVES!  THEY LOOK...AT...THE MUSIC IN FRONT OF THEM. THIS WOULD SEEM LIKE THE
LOGICAL THING TO DO BUT IT IS WRONG AND IT AFFECTS THE STUDENT OR
THE PROFESSIONAL'S ABILITIES AT THE PIANO.

THEY STARE AT THE MUSIC ON THE STAND IN FRONT OF THEM, THEN WHEN NECESSARY THEY STARE down AT THEIR
HANDS TO CHECK POSITIONING
ESPECIALLY IN PIANO CHANGES OF THE HANDS. THIS  YOU WILL SEE, WITH THE VERY BEST CONCERT PIANISTS IN THE
WORLD.
FOR CHILDREN AT A LARGE PIANO....GRAND PIANO...THEY ARE SMALLER IN STATURE AND THIS CAUSES THEM TO
LOOK...UP...FROM THEIR SEATS...AND THIS BECOMES
THEIR...STANDARD...FOR LOOKING AT THE MUSIC...EVEN WHEN THEY GROW AND BECOME TALL ENOUGH TO BE EVEN IN
HEIGHT WITH THE MUSIC STANDS.
MOST TEACHERS...DO NOT CORRECT THIS PROBLEM...AND IF THE TRUTH IS SAID...BECAUSE THEY HAVE IT...THEMSELVES.

IT IS WRONG...AND IT LEADS TO LOSING YOUR PLACE, UNEVEN BALANCE AT THE PIANO, AND USELESS HEAD MOTIONS
THAT EFFECT THE MOVEMENT OF THE HANDS...OR BETTER YET...THEIR STABILITY.  IN PIANO PERFORMANCE...THE LESS
MOVEMENT , THE BETTER. THE CLEARER THE PUNCTUATION OF THE MUSICAL ELEMENTS.

THE RIGHT POSITION IS TO AIM YOUR HEAD , ALMOST AT A 45 DEGREE POSITION TO THE KEYS...AND THE MUSIC, AND TO  
BE LOOKING IN THE MIDDLE
OF BOTH AREAS. WHEN THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED, ONLY THEN ARE  YOU READY TO PLAY THE PIANO...CORRECTLY.

NOW, YOU USE ONLY YOUR EYEBALLS
TO MOVE UP AND DOWN...BETWEEN YOUR MUSIC AND YOUR HANDS.
GOD MADE YOUR EYES TO ROTATE,WITHOUT MAKING YOUR HEAD TIRED ,
AND IN THIS WAY YOU REMAIN BALANCED AND  LEFT NOT  LOOKING SILLY.
YOU PLAY THE PIANO WITH YOUR HANDS, FEET AND EYES. YOU DO DRAW ON OTHER PARTS OF YOUR BODY IN CERTAIN
PHRASING AND FOR OTHER REASONS.
BUT, STABILITY....LITTLE MOTION IS THE BASIC ORDER OF THE DAY. THERE WILL BE TIMES WHEN YOU WILL DRAW FROM
YOUR BACK SHOULDERS TO GAIN THAT
EXTRA STRENGTH NEEDED FOR A VIRTUOSIC, LOUD...PASSAGE...BUT, FOR OUR PURPOSES...HERE WE REMAIN....ONLY
CONCERNED WITH ..OUR EYES.
SIGHT READING...GOOD SIGHT READING REQUIRES ...LESS MOTION...HERE...LESS..IS..MORE.

THIS ELIMINATES ALWAYS LOSING YOUR PLACE IN THE MUSIC
WHICH YOUNG CHILDREN HAVE AS A COMMON PROBLEM.
BELIEVE ME...THIS IS ALSO VERY COMMON IN THE BEST OF ARTISTS AT THE PIANO.

I KNOW MANY PEOPLE WITH DOCTORATE DEGREES IN PIANO PERFORMANCE THAT MAKE THIS MISTAKE ,
EVERY DAY OF THEIR LIVES AND IT LEADS
TO BAD PERFORMANCES...OR WORSE .

THIS IS TODAY'S,
GREGG MOFFATT TIP FOR "ARTISTRY"  FOR THE PIANO PROFESSIONAL.

MR. MOFFATT has always had an affinity for Beethoven,
believing they shared the same deafness problem. My deafness
caused me at a young age to be able to write music in my head.
To this day, all of my compositions are written in my head
before I go to a Piano. I believe that this
ability was borne out of deafness.

"everyone in the piano world has a story and this is mine. A
lovely, gentle woman helped me at the beginning with
lessons in her home in Glastonbury and she introduced me
to Moshe and Libby Paranov with lessons in their home
across from the Hartt School of Music. One day, I said to
Elsie, that I would like to teach Piano, but didn't have the
time to go to college. She told me that I was able to teach
now, and she would help me with what to put on my
business cards...etc.
So, one cold day, I pushed a Piano Lesson sign into the
ground in S. Windsor , CT and all of the
above began to come together, but that is not the story. A
young woman called me for lessons of Swedish and English
extraction. Valerie Gittings became Mrs. Valerie Moffatt.
Sometimes life, is measured by simple actions that change
our lives. Elsie was a believer in the..i'm possible.
Not the IMPOSSIBLE.   THANK YOU. - GREGG
ELSIE COCCO EASTERBROOK, B.A., HARTT
Reach for the STARS
..and decades later, Mr. Moffatt
studies with
HOWARD RICHMAN,
Piano teacher to the STARS.
Dear Elsie...
YOU SAID TO PASS IT ON...
Your kindness did find a home in  a young
girl on metal braces...both arms, who  came
to my studio for lessons...I taught her. She
went on LATER, and I never heard a
thing...though I suspected she might pass
away very young IN LIFE.

After my father's burial in a S Windsor
cemetery, I walked around his grave and
looked at the markers of those next to him.
Right next to him, there she was...at his feet.
I looked up her obituary online, and found
out....she did die young,
after finishing music
school, and working at a casino in the
entertainment area where
the shows were held...watching those with
dancing legs...and her spirit.

I go to her grave sometimes...and leave
one red rose...in your memory for
CHRISTine Leahy

Yes, Gregg...you can teach right now...I
will show you how to go about it...Elsie

You taught me that teaching doesn't come
from the fingers...but, from the HEART.

If spirits in cemeteries whisper to each other
at night...maybe now my dad knows...
you and I, Elsie...
WE made a difference...AND...
THIS ENTIRE PAGE IS FOR...YOU.

WITH LOVE AND ONE RED ROSE...
MAY THIS MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE THROWN INTO
THE ATLANTIC FIND YOU DOWN SOUTH...FIND
YOU WELL...AND BLESSED.    LOVE, GREGG

P.S.- many in our field measure success by college
degrees attained, playing Carnegie HALL...but,
Elsie...nothing is GRANDer..than the look of
one red rose...
against a backdrop of snow in a cemetery.

GREGG MOFFATT
Paul Bisaccia
began his career as an easy listening, dinner music
Pianist in a hotel in Hartford, Connecticut , possibly
the Sonesta...but, don't quote me on that one.
Somehow, he met Luiz de Moura Castro, who
probably felt that Paul was good, but could be so
much more.

Paul decided to enter the Hartt School of Music, that
was co-founded by Julius Hartt and his to be, son in
law, Moshe Paranov, one of my first piano teachers.
Anyway, Paul began his training at Hartt
with Luiz de Moura Castro, originally from Brazil, who
had DIRECT LINE training back to both,
Chopin and FRANZ LISZT.

Paul graduated from the Hartt School , Top of his
Class, after a lof of study and hard work. Fairly soon,
his CD's were being sold in the campus store.

His music from the CD's was heard on NPR, national
public radio. Then, in my humble opinion, his big
break came. He was chosen to do TWO, PBS specials
one on Gershwin....and he was involved with a
Burn's special.

This truly launched his career.  Paul and I both
studied with Luiz de Moura Castro at his home in
Avon, Ct and I studied with Paul at his apartment in
Hartford, Ct, which interestingly was not far from
where my music career began with dance lessons at
Ryan's Dance Academy on Farmington , Avenue
across from the now, YWCA, and The Hartford
Insurance Company. The building is gone now..and
all that is left is a parking lot.

Paul will go a long way due to his efforts and his
career has just begun.   -GEM


In all the time that I knew Paul he always
had that light brown, golden hair and no glasses
as you can see in this photo.

















But, recently , I found the first , Paul on the
inter-net...with his performance with an orchestra,
while in college. It shows his talent for sure, but ...it
did set me back as I was the one with the darker hair
and glasses as a kid.  Enjoy the video of Paul Bisaccia
on his way, to THE
TOP OF HIS GRADUATING CLASS...A LONG
WAY FROM PLAYING DINNER MUSIC IN A
HARTFORD, HOTEL. GOOD FOR YOU, PAUL.
KUDOS.--- GREGG MOFFATT.
..AND THEN PAUL WAS ASKED TO DO A PBS SPECIAL ON
GERSHWIN....AND ON IT WENT..THIS IS A TAPE OF HIM
PLAYING GERSHWIN....

WHEN I FIRST GOT MY

CHOSEN A ...CLARINET.

THEN,  JOHN CARUSO WENT UP .25
AN HOUR AND I THOUGHT MY

BUT HE KEPT IT TOGETHER,
KNOWING THAT I WAS A....
MUSICAL KID.

HIS INVESTMENT PAID OFF...
THE LESSONS FOUND ME
MY CURRENT WIFE.
ACCORIDON AND DANCE
LESSONS.
I WOULD COME UP FROM THE
BASEMENT AND PRACTICING THE
ACCORDION AND MY DAD WOULD
SAY,

"GREGG, DO YOU REALLY HAVE TO
PLAY SO LOUDLY?"

SLOWLY, I WAS GOING
DEAF AND NOBODY KNEW.
TWO EARNED REAL ESTATE DESIGNATIONS
AND WORKING  IN THE FIELD.
G.R.I, GRADATE OF THE REALTOR'S INSTITUTE
C.R.E.A., CERTIFIED REAL ESTATE APPRAISER

HERE SEEN BESIDE MY FIRST CADILLAC
TEACHING OVER 90 LESSONS A WEEK FROM
THE MASSACHUSETTS LINE TO CROMWELL, CT, AND
FROM THE GRANBY'S TO STURBRIDGE, MA.

I HAD MY OWN, 1,500 SQ. FT, STORE IN A STRIP MALL
TEACHING MUSIC LESSONS WITH OTHER TEACHERS
WORKING FOR ME. COLLEGE GRADUATES OR SOON
TO BE..IN THE MUSIC FIELD...IT WAS A TOTAL
HOOT...LOL.

...STILL HALF DEAF....WITH NO MUSIC DEGREE
MAKING MORE THAN THOSE WITH MASTER'S AND
DOCTORATES WORKING AT MAJOR MUSIC
COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES.

NOBODY COULD UNDERSTAND HOW I DID IT.
FOR ME IT WAS SIMPLE.  152  I. Q.

GRADUATED FROM THE COMPUTER PROCESSING
INSTITUTE WITH A DUAL DEGREE, COMPUTER
OPERATIONS AND PROGRAMMING, 3.96.
SUMMA CUM LAUDE

GRADUATED FROM THE MUNICIPAL POLICE
ACADEMY.

EARBED MY CT. BOATING LICENSE.

HELPED TRAIN THE 1ST GERMAN SHEPHERD POLICE
DOG FOR THE CT. STATE POLICE WITH MY FATHER
AND BROTHER.

BEGAN TAKING PIANO LESSONS WITH THE VERY BEST
IN CT AND MASSACHUSETTS, BUT WHO HAD THE
TIME...I WAS BURIED...RUNNING A STORE, TAKING
CARE OF 65-90 STUDENTS A WEEK.

THEY HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS GOING THROUGH. I
COULDN'T TELL THEM...BECAUSE, HOW DO YOU TELL
YOUR PIANO TEACHER, THAT YOU TOO TEACH....AND
MAKE 3'S WHAT THEY MAKE A MONTH...WITHOUT A
COLLEGE DEGREE. THAT NEVER GOES OVER
WELL...AT ALL...TRUST ME.

TELL PEOPLE THAT OR EVEN INTIMATE IT, AND THEY
THINK YOU ARE CRAZY. BUT, ABOVE IS THE
CADILLAC...AND AT ONE TIME..I OWNED THE
CADILLAC V...THAT COULD DO...
235 M.P.H.....IT WAS PURE INSANITY.

HOW INSANE DID IT GET?
IN MY WALLET WERE CREDIT CARDS
THAT WOULD ALLOW ME...INSANITY
RUN AMOK...TO BUY A NEW LAMBORGHINI
ON CREDIT CARDS....ABSOLUTELY INSANE.
MASTER CARDS. VISA CARDS, AMERICAN EXPRESS
CARD, CITICORP 25K BUSINESS CARDS,
PLATINUM CARDS...YOU NAME IT..I HAD IT ALL.
$150,000 AVAILABLE AT EVERY MOMENT OF THE
DAY.

THIS WAS THE KID THAT SHOWED UP TO TAKE
LESSON FROM PEOPLE FROM JUILLIARD, EASTMAN,
AND OTHER SCHOOLS.
THEY SUSPECTED IT..OR THOUGHT...I WAS JUST
CRAZY.

I WOULD TEACH A LESSON AT AN EXECUTIVE'S HOME
AND THE WIFE FELT SO SORRY FOR ME SHE WOULD
GIVE ME A PLATE OF FOOD WHILE SITTING NEXT TO
HER CHILD WHO WAS TAKING A LESSON WITH
ME...BECAUSE, EVERYONE KNOWS...HOW
POOR..PIANO TEACHERS ARE...SHE WOULD THINK TO
HERSELF...AND I SAW IT THEIR EYES....IT WAS SO
FUNNY. I LOVED THE MEALS....COULDN'T LOSE A
POUND IF I TRIED.
ITALIAN FOOD, POLISH FOOD, YOU NAME IT
WE ATE IT...LOL.

SO, WHILE WORKING IN HE REAL ESTATE BUISNESS,
AGENT, THEN SALES MANAGER FOR A REALTY
WORLD FIRM , THEN AS A CT. STATE BROKER WITH
MY OWN FIRM, AND THEN RUNNING MY OWN MUSIC
STORE....I GOT TO STUDY WITH THE BEST OF THE
BEST...BECAUSE...

I COULD AFFORD THE LESSONS!

SO, I BUILT THE RESUME YOU SEE ON THIS PAGE
AND I NEVER, EVER ATTENDED A SINLE

CLASSROOM CLASS AT ANY
MUSIC CONSERVATORY, COLLEGE OR
MUSIC UNIVERSITY AND ONE OF MY FIRST TEACHER
WAS MOSHE PARANOV, PRESIDENT AND CO-FOUND
OF THE HARTT SCHOOL OF MUSIC
TRAINED BY THE BEST THAT EVER WAS IN
THE MUSIC BUSINESS. FROM THERE...THE REST WAS
BUILT ...BRICK BY BRICK.

ENJOY THE FLOWCHART AND I AM NOT DONE
WITH IT....IT JUST TAKES SO MUCH OF MY TIME
TO DO...AND IT IS EVER GROWING.

WHY?
FOR FUN! REMEMBER, FUN?

THERE WAS A MOVIE THAT
DICAPRIO DID...AND I DON'T KNOW IF YOU EVER
SAW IT..BUT, I LAUGH EVERYTIME THAT
I SEE IT CALLED,  "CATCH ME IF YOU CAN!"

SOMETIMES, I FEEL LIKE I AM...THAT GUY.
NO KIDDING...TRUE.

MY WIFE WAS A STUDENT OF MINE....MAKING
29K A YEAR, AND I TOLD HER THAT I COULD GET HER
TO 100K A YEAR AND SHE LAUGHED...BUT, NOW WE
HAVE PASSED THAT ..TWICE OVER
FOR HER ALONE AND SHE WILL GO HIGHER.

I GUESS THIS STORY WOULD SHOW IT ALL.
I WOKE UP ONE MORNING AND TOLD MY WIFE, I
WOULD MEET WARREN BUFFETT THE WORLD'S
RICHEST MAN AND THAT I WOULD
PHYSICALLY...BUMP INTO HIM.  FOUR YEARS LATER,
AT GORAT'S RESTAURANT IN OMAHA, NEBRASA HE
HAD FINISHED DINNER, CAME THROUGH THE BAR
AREA AND STOPPE NEAR ME TO TURN AND ANSWER A
QUESTION FROM SOMEONE BEHIND HIM. I TOOK
FOUR QUICK STEPS FORWARD...TO BEHIND HIM, AND
BEFORE HE FINISHED THE CONVERSATION...LOOKED
AT MY WIFE. SMILING....LAUGHING...AND TAPPED
WARREN  BUFFETT ON THE BACK AND ANNOUNCED
LOUDLY FOR ALL TO HEAR..."
WARREN EDWARD BUFFETT OF OMAHA NEBRASKA...I
WOULD LIKE...YOU...TO HAVE THE PLEASURE OF
MEETING...

GREGG EDWARD MOFFATT OF
SOUTH WINDSOR, CT.

WE WENT OUTSIDE AND HE SIGNED HIS
ESSAYS BOOK FOR ME. LATER, MY WIFE WHO WAS
TOTALLY STUNNED SAID...
'"IT HAPPENED JUST AS YOU PREDICTED
FOUR YEARS AGO...HOW DID YOU DO THAT?"

BY ALWAYS BELIEVING THAT
IMPOSSIBLE....ONLY MEANS....
I'M POSSIBLE...AND THAT IS HOW YOU
BUILD ONE OF THE BEST
FLOWCHARTS OF PIANO COMPOSERS AND PIANISTS
EVER AMASSED IN ONE RESUME...
PROBABLY...IN HISTORY.

SOMETHING HAPPENED TO ME AS A KID, WHEN  I
LAID DOWN TRACK AND TRAIL PATTERNS FOR
CHARLES H. KAMAN, C.E.O, AND PRESIDENT OF
KAMAN AEROSPACE. WHEN I SHOOK HANDS AT 12
WITH MITCHELL BRONFMAN, HEIR TO THE
SEAGRAMS AND CANADIAN CLUB LIQUOR FORTUNE.
WHEN I MET, AL COUTURE, WHO TAUGHT ME A FEW
JUDO HOLDS, AND WHO HOLDS TO THIS DAY THE
FASTEST K.O. IN
BOXING HISTORY. I LOST ALL FEAR OF RICH
PEOPLE AND LEARNED...THEY ARE JUST LIKE US.

I HAVE NEVER BEEN NORMAL SINCE...LOL.

BESIDES...NORMAL IS BORING.

Adela Gebr..1st piano teacher to Howard
Richman. .Her husband was a major painter
in Hollywood...see the following link  as they
fled Czechoslovakia on skis to avoid the
communists. Fled to Bogota, Columbia. and
came to the USA. Her husband was a
major
portrait and hollywood scene painter.
Worked with the best ever.
www.gebrart.com/Introduction.html
JAROSLAV 'JERRY' GEBR....PORTRAIT AND MOVIE STUDIO ARTIST IN HOLLYWOOD. His body of work may never be replicated! He did portraits of the best in Hollywood and did scenes for the top movies ever produced.

A child prodigy in art, he was trained in PRAGUE, and he and his wife, ( first piano teacher to Howard Richman) fled the communists and their occupation by putting on ski's and going over the mountains to freedom. They later
emigrated to Bogota, Columbia in South America where he did fresco and portraits, after which they came to the United States. Gebr became a tour de force in Hollywood and worked with everyone that was anyone doing scene
backdrops for people like, Hitchcock, portraits for John Candy, work with George Lucas , Steven Spielberg, Rod Serlin. Alfred Hitchcock  and portraits for all the major actors and actresses and  so many others.  
Two of his major portrait works were commissioned by the U S MILITARY and hang in the White House and the Pentagon.

Anyone that did any major movie work in Hollywood...knew... JAROSLAV "JERRY" GEBR was the man to call.
JAROSLAV "JERRY" GEBR...ova

CHILD PRODIGY
IN ART!
HIS PORTRAITS OF ORIGINALS BY
MASTERS...WERE SO GOOD...
YOU COULDN'T TELL WHICH WAS
THE REAL ONE.

HOLLYWOOD TOUR DE FORCE.
HIS BODY OF WORK MAY NEVER BE
REPRODUCED IN HOLLYWOOD.

HIS WIFE WAS MY TEACHER'S
FIRST  PIANO TEACHER...ADELA GEBR.

JAROSLAV WORKED WITH NAMES SUCH AS...
SPIELBERG, JOHN CANDY, LUCILLE BALL,
LUCAS FILMS, ALFRED HITCHCOCK...AND SO
MANY  HUNDREDS MORE.

ONE OF HIS PORTRAITS HANGS IN THE
WHITE HOUSE...ANOTHER IN THE
PENTAGON.

Head of the  ScenIc Arts Dept for
MGM AND THEN UNIVERSAL STUDIOS.
I ASKED MY TEACHER, HOWARD...ABOUT THE BACKGROUND OF HIS PIANO TEACHER AND HE SAID THAT SHE WAS HIS FIRST TEACHER FROM ....DOWN THE STREET.
YOU SEE, HOWARD'S DAD WAS A MAJOR ACTOR IN HOLLYWOOD THAT HAD DONE OVER 500 ROLES IN ALL KINDS OF MOVIES AND SITCOMS.  
SO, HOWARD GREW UP IN HOLLYWOOD CLOSE TO THE BEST IN THE FIELD.

OBVIOUSLY, JAROSLAV GEBR WAS A MAJOR TOUR DE FORCE, LIKE HOWARD'S DAD IN HOLLYWOOD, AND LIVED CLOSE TO THEM. HIS WIFE, ADELA, GAVE PIANO LESSONS...AND UNTIL I HEAR BACK FROM HOWARD...THIS MAY HAVE BEEN ALL THAT
HOWARD KNEW UNTIL NOW.....BECAUSE ONCE I STARTED MY RESEARCH SOME THINGS CAME FORWARD THAT EXPLAINED HOW HOWARD...CAME TO BE SO GOOD AND GOT TO STUDY WITH SO MANY OF THE TOP PIANISTS AND TEACHERS...WITH
DIRECT LINE CONNECTIONS TO  THEODORE LESCHETIZKY AND ....FRANZ LISZT. My research over the years, has shown...you don't become the best...studying with...just...
the piano teacher down the street....not going to happen...99 percent of the time in this world. So, i knew there was something lacking in this story.

SO HERE IS THE MOFFATT RESEARCH....YOU SEE...GEBR...LIKED TO DO PORTRAITS...SO I FIGURED I WOULD LOOK AT HIS PORTRAITS...AND THERE HAD TO BE ONE OF HIS WIFE...AND THERE IT WAS...1
953 IN BOGOTA, COLUMBIA..HIS WIFE...AND THEIR ORIGINAL NAME..GEBROVA. ALSO WAS HER MUSICAL BACKGROUND. THIS WAS NOT JUST A LADY DOWN THE STREET...WHICH IS WHAT HOWARD KNEW....THIS WAS A MAJOR OPERATIC WORLD
RENOWNED OPERA SINGER-COLORATURA...THAT STUDIED MUSIC AT THE
ACADEMIES OF PRAGUE, MUNICH AND VIENNA!!!!  I KNEW , THIS MADE SENSE.
NO WONDER...HOWARD GOT THE FOUNDATION HE GOT...AND THIS IS WHY...SINCE BOTH JAROSLAV AND ADELA WERE...ARTISTS IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA AS THE NAZI'S WERE COMING IN.....THEY HAD TO GET OUT ....WHEN THE GETTING WAS GOOD ON SKI'S
ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS INTO BAVARIA...ON TO BOGOTA AND THE USA...BECAUSE THE COMMUNISTS..HATED ARTISTS. HE WAS A PAINTER...BUT, SHE WAS A SINGER....BOTH ARTISTS..BOTH IN NEED OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.

I WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT FOR YOU...JAROSLAV'S BEAUTIFUL WIFE....ADELA GEBRova.... WORLD RENOWNED OPERA SINGER...COLORATURA IN BOGOTA, COLUMBIA IN 1953.
I CALL THIS STORY.....AND NOW JAROSLAV'S PAINTING OF HIS BEAUTIFUL WIFE...

" THE LADY DOWN THE STREET....






































'
ADELA GEBRova...OPERATIC SINGER AND COLORATURA IN BOGOTA, COLUMBIA IN 1953.
TRAINED IN THE ACADEMIES OF PRAGUE, MUNICH AND VIENNA. She and her husband escaped
the communists by taking ski's over the mountains to BAVARIA. WIFE OF THE ARTIST IN
HOLLYWOOD,  JAROSLAV GEBR. ON HOWARD'S PIANO TRAINING FLOWCHART , ALL HE HAD
WAS HER NAME...AS SHE WAS HIS BEGINNING PIANO TEACHER AS A CHILD...who lived down
the street. BUT, FOR ME....GREGG MOFFATT...YOU OFTEN HAVE TO LOOK DEEPER TO
FIND...THE STORY WITHIN THE STORY. THERE IS ALWAYS...A STORY...WITHIN THE STORY.
She was so much more..than just a piano teacher down the street. A World Renowned Soprano
Opera Singer trained in the best of Academies..who knew music...and made it...sing.

And now...decades later...after her death...her flight from Czechoslovakia, to Bavaria, to Bogota
to the USA -trained a kid down the street in CA...who ended up studying with the BEST with ties
to LISZT / LESCHETIZKY...LEHEVINNE... who  NOW teaches a fellow in Connecticut.  NOW the
training taken in  the Academies in Prague, Munich, and Vienna...crossed the mountains,
crossed the ocean...and has now crossed the USA...to Connecticut.

A wonderful story...and I am so glad to be part of it.  - Gregg Moffatt
ADELA GEBR-  RENOWNED OPERA SINGER......JAROSLOV GEBR...ARTIST/PAINTER.
MY E - MAIL TO MY FRIEND AND TEACHER, HOWARD...

HOWARD...YOUR FIRST PIANO TEACHER WASN'T JUST..THE LADY DOWN THE
STREET THAT TAUGHT YOU PIANO AS A CHILD...SHE STUDIED MUSIC AT THE
ACADEMIES IN PRAGUE, MUNICH AND VIENNA AS AN SOPRANO
OPERATICSINGER....AND COLORATURA. SHE WAS HUGE. I DON'T WANT TO
"ASSUME" THAT YOU KNEW THIS...I NEVER ASSUME....AND  by the way this is
the portrait he did of his wife..and proof positive of what i am saying
....


HOWARD WRITING BACK TO GREGG MOFFATT...

WOW!  EXCELLENT RESEARCH....
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

IMAGINE FOR A MINUTE...TAKING PIANO LESSONS FROM A LADY...DOWN THE
STREET...AND GETTING SO GOOD YOU GET INTO UCLA...AND GRADUATE AS
A PIANO PERFORMANCE MAJOR...THEN GOING TO THE CALIFORNIA
INSTITUTE OF THE ARTS AND YOU  ACQUIRE A MASTER'S DEGREE, M.F.A.,
MASTERS IN FINE ARTS IN PIANO PERFORMANCE STUDYING WITH TEACHERS
THAT ARE ... DIRECT LINE ..SOME 2 AWAY FROM FRANZ LISZT...AND NEVER
KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT BACKGROUND YOUR FIRST PIANO TEACHER
REALLY HAD AS A TEACHER IN MUSIC...AND FINDING OUT...DECADES
LATER...FROM A GUY IN CT THAT THE LADY DOWN THE STREET...TRULY
WAS SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL.

GOD...WORKS IN HIS WAY...AND IN HIS TIME.
BOTH OF THE GEBR'S ARE GONE NOW.
BUT THEIR HISTORY...LIVES ON...RIGHT HERE...RIGHT NOW.

ADELA GEBR....WORLD RENOWNED OPERA SINGER.                                      
..AND  IF YOU KNOW ME...
I JUST LOVE THE STORY IN THE STORY...
AND HOW THINGS COME TO BE...

I NEVER HAD ANY IDEA IN MY LIFE...THAT AN ADELA GEBR WOULD PLAY
A PART IN MY LIFE...THAT A LADY THAT LEFT A CHANGING...AND SOON
TO BE COMMUNIST COUNTRY WITH NAZI'S...ON SKI'S WITH HER
HUSBAND, AND ARTIST....OVER THE MOUNTAINS IN THE SNOW INTO
BAVARIA...AND THEN WOULD GO TO BOGOTA, COLUMBIA...AND THEN
TO THE WEST COAST OF THE USA...IN HOLLYWOOD...WOULD TEACH A
KID ...DOWN THE STREET HOW TO PLAY THE PIANO...THAT WOULD END
UP STUDYING WITH THE VERY BEST....IN PIANO...STRAIGHT MAN FOR
VICTOR BORGE, PEOPLE THAT PLAYED CARNEGIE HALL, STUDIED WITH
STUDENT'S OF FRANZ LISZT AND LESCHETIZKY..WOULD END UP
BEING....MY TEACHER...

ON THE EAST COAST OF AMERICA.

WHO COULD PREDICT THIS KIND OF THING?

BUT, IN MY LIFE..IT ALWAYS GOES THAT WAY...AND NOW...I HAVE PAID
MRS. GEBR BACK, LONG AFTER HER DEATH...BY LETTING ONE OF HER
BEST STUDENT'S KNOW...HER BACKGROUND.


IF I WROTE THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN TO ME INTO A BOOK...PEOPLE
WOULD SAY , I WAS MAKING..UP...STORIES.

BUT, IT IS ALL TRUE.

...THANK YOU, MRS. GEBR...FOR TAKING THAT TRIP OVER THE
MOUNTAINS....THANK YOU , SO MUCH.  - GREGG MOFFATT
