A great teacher wants to get rid of her students as quickly as possible.
Not because she doesn’t like them, but because if she is doing her job well, her students will learn enough and in the appropriate way to eventually have the knowledge and skills to become independent of her.
And the quicker and more efficiently she can do this, the better she is doing her job. It doesn’t always make sense financially, but if great teachers were motivated by money., they’d probably be in a different job
Whereas a less skilled teacher will take longer to impart inferior knowledge in a less effective way.
So – with the ultimate aim of getting rid of as many of you as quickly as possible, I have places available on two brand new adult courses in learning how to play piano starting next month. Full details in tomorrow’s blog.
