I don’t normally write about getting a new student, as that’s a regular event. But, when I get one who wants one-hour lessons three days per week, that’s something special! This is a clear display of someone’s dedication to learn and improve their talent, art, knowledge, and musicianship. I’m just as excited as they are. I wish more people, young and old, realized that the bulk of learning occurs at the lesson, just like the learning happens at school much more than with the homework. Don’t get me wrong, practice and homework are important, too. But, what a joy to see this desire not only in a young student, but also in her parents.
