Quick Decorating Ideas Under $20: The Budget Decorator's Bible
Teaching techniques, ways to motivate students, and scholarly presentations are not in this book. Instead you will find stories of the seamy, steamy side of piano teaching. If you want the lowdown about the frustration, humor, satisfaction, and low pay that comes with being an independent teacher of piano, then you are in the right place. This piano teacher tells all--the tension of working with demanding parents, students overloaded with activities and homework--and the peculiarities of us all. And yes, you will read of the joys of living a life in music. The reader will occupy a front-row seat next to the piano bench.
Just when the student considers not going through one more piano lesson, one more correction, or practicing one more time and the teacher is having the same thoughts, a miracle occurs. At the most unexpected moment, the teacher will hear a beautiful sound of music coming from the very soul of her student. They will look at each other and smile; bonded in the realization they have just become Closer to the Ivories.
