Student Enthusiasm



It feels really great when my students come to me all excited about a new piece they found on You Tube and they want to play it. I try to find simplified versions of the pieces for them. Their enthusiasm just motivates me to work with them a little harder. So, right now, I’m looking for a simplified piece of Canon in D. Last night as I was walking down one of the hallways at church, one of my students just ran up to me with such excitement because she had found a piece she wanted to learn (Canon in D). How can I say no?!! I will work with her on this piece along with her regular curriculum but she will be playing Canon in D for the Christmas Recital! How do I know? Because she WANTS to learn it! It doesn’t get better than that for a teacher.
