Music, a chore?

I am amazed at how many parents I meet that share with me horror stories of past music or piano lessons they had or their children had. It confuses me to think that any music teacher would even have the power, let alone the desire to turn music into something other than it is, which is something beautiful and wonderful in your life.

On the flip-side to this reality, it is definitely worth mentioning that there are tons of great music teacher out there that bring honor to this profession and truly add the joy of music to their students lives. Music is all about passion and a special language that can communicate in a way that no other language can. When we, as teachers can convey that to someone, it is the greatest feeling you can imagine.

How about you? Have you had any bad experiences when it comes to music or piano lessons? Share your experience so we can all learn from each other.

have a great day and don’t forget to practice 😉
