"Teaching for the 21st Century: A Unique Music Experience"
I have heard of many students who have taken music lessons and quit because they hated it, yet later wishing they had continued. When I teach, I first let students enjoy music, which makes them want to practice, which inspires themselves and others, which makes them enjoy playing! Then it becomes a cycle which repeats itself over and over again. First, it must be enjoyable -- otherwise it will be like pulling teeth! However, practice and staying on top of assignments is still important as well! Most children still need a little push. All fun usually leads to little practice, which leads to minimal progress where students eventually lose interest. It is a very important balance between enjoying and pushing, and the key is constant communication between myself and you, the parents.
