Jeanette's Corner: Teacher Tips

 

My Story  (Part 1)
 
My father was determined that his first born would be a pianist (due to his lack of opportunity in Argentina).  When I was 5, my dad bought a little spinet upright piano.  He liked to play by ear.  At the age of 7, I started group music/piano lessons at a local music store with Mrs. Gordon.  I remember my favorite activity was flashcard races!  Then I continued with private lessons.  
 
I had to practice 30 minutes everyday as soon as I came home from school.  Back then, we didn't have as much homework.  My friends were already outside playing, but I had to practice first before I could go outside to play.  I began to feel resentful and lost interest.  At about the age of 12, I complained about practice and wanted to quit.  I wanted to take tap dance lessons.  My parents held steadfast and wouldn't acknowledge my complaints or desires.  In other words, I had no choice.  And so I continued.
 
Perhaps my dad had a conversation with my teacher, I don't know.  But one day, when I was 13, I came home from school.  And there in our dining room area, was a beautiful Steinway Grand Piano!  I was so overwhelmed by it's beauty and sound, I never complained again.  Practice became a joy.  Sure it was still work, but now I had an instrument that responded to me, a real relationship.  That piano sits in my home to this day.  And as they say, the rest is history!
