There are so many reasons that I love teaching. One that has to be high on the list is never knowing what students will say. He say it written out and, being a jokester, said it looks like terrible. I had never had a student say that and it took me by surprised….and I laughed hard. He did too!

Caleb did such a fantastic job with the piece “Wistful”. One of the things we were working on with it was to bring out the emotion connected to the dynamic changes. I think he did great!

I got this in an email from a parent of a kindergarten student. He's doing a fantastic job, but I've noticed that (like I was for a long time) if he thinks that music is too hard, he won't even try. I've been working with him to break it down into smaller chunks, and he's done really, really well and has been making progress!

One of the things I’ve been thinking about in regard to soundtracks is that it helps to connect the visuals we see and the story being told on the screen with the music that we hear. It helps to deepen and make that connection even stronger. But it’s even more than that. This quote by Billy Joel really hits it well. Music is that universal connector that no matter what our background, it’s our response. It’s our outlet. The styles may vary, but it’s so powerful. Personally, I’ve thought about it lately in light of the remembrance of September 11th, 2001 as well as yesterday, as I remembered the 10th anniversary of my brother’s passing from cancer. I listened to Cher, because she was his favorite singer. It brought a healing but a remembrance as well. What song or songs have brought you the most healing in life?

Cara's mom shared this with me. It's Cara's dad's birthday today, so Cara looked up Happy Birthday and learned it. And that's not why I'm sharing this video. It's the last second of the video. And it's not what Cara did. It's her mom saying "YAY" when she finished. Here's why I'm sharing this. When parents are a part of and encourage their child to practice, there is a much higher chance of success for the child. I know this first hand for myself, as I never liked to practice, but my mom encouraged me to practice. As a teacher, I see this happen as well. When parents encourage and cheer their child on in practice, good things happen. It's a sacrifice of time and a commitment on the part of the parent, but I can speak from experience that it still sticks with you as an adult! This is fantastic!
