A knowledgable musician is a good musician, and a good musician never stops learning.
I’m not sure if this is what other music schools and instructors are experiencing, but I certainly am. In the decade I’ve been teaching there has never been a shortage of students, until now.
Is it the economy? High gas prices? Low wages or wage freezes? Joblessness? I don’t know.
But that’s not the reason for this blog. I want to talk about students’ attitude and perception. Who knows, maybe that’s also a factor in the low turn-out, too.
