It frustrates me when a student forgets a cheque, or misses a cheque… or bounces a cheque. It frustrates me when a student forgets a lesson, or misses a lesson… or asks for a make-up lesson. And it frustrates me when a student forgets to practice, or misses practice… or just doesn’t care to practice.
Then along comes my year-end piano recital.
And it brings me such joy to see proud students, and their proud parents, and their teary-eyed grandparents.
And I realize… all jobs have their frustrations. Piano teaching is no different. But not all jobs have a positive impact on the life of a child.
And this makes all the difference.
