All Things Piano
Should teachers who do not practice, study or explore new concepts daily expect or demand that level of dedication from their students?
As a child I wish I'd had the insight to ask my first neighborhood teacher (In a respectful way) ..
• "So how much practice did you get in this week" or
• "What new thing did you learn this week"?
If I had, I wonder if it would have been received in a positive or negative light as I'm pretty sure she did none of the above.
She relied heavily upon method book assignments.
I also truly believe my advanced teachers would have smiled proudly answering the question with an example.
Thus why I haven't missed a day of study or some degree of practice (except for extenuating circumstances) since starting piano at age 9.
I will always be a student first and foremost.
