Here we go again! Another year and another recital!! Yeah!!
It always gives me soo much pleasure to show case my students in how much they have grown and learned over the year, through our yearly recital.
What I find completely amazing is that they were all up for big challenging pieces and technique. They are incredible! They all persisted, did their best, plus had a positive attitude. This will absolutely transcend into their lives. They also made decisions to help them how to use their time practicing and balancing between their lives outside piano. This is what I call..not time management, but managing activities. We all have the same amount of time, it’s how we choose to manage our activities that define growth.
What I have found is it’s not the big picture when pursuing something, its a series of small celebrations that lead us to the big picture. This couldn’t be more evident in anything we choose to do. For my students it’s the piece, or technique that they study with support from family and myself and with those elements, nothing is impossible.
