<<Did ya know that Michele was self taught 100% on the Oehler system - never
studied it with anyone.>>

I've known Michelle since early high school, when we played together in the
Young Musicians' Orchestra. She basically took a year off, in the mid-'70s,
and taught herself to play Oehler. Her father, Kalman Bloch, used to play
on Alberts as a kid, so I suppose he was an influence.
Zubin Mehta, being Viennese trained, really was a strong influence on her
adoption of the Oehler System.
