Is Piano Practicing Ever Fun?
I came across this excellent article published by Dr. Joseph Line at the Piano Teacher's Federation the other day, and I've been mulling over it ever since. It addresses a lot of the attitudes that we as teachers may adopt toward students that can actually be harmful in the long run. It's also brought to mind several issues I have with our current education system and the American attitude toward education in general, but that's a topic for another post! Hope this inspires all you teachers out there to rethink how we present the concept of practice to our students.
