Flexibility is a very important quality in a teacher. ~ Corinna Neely
Student reminder: Slow down. I would rather you play something slowly and correctly than to play fast and make mistakes.
Parent reminder: Let me know in advance if you’re going to miss a lesson. I’m happy to schedule a makeup if I’m able to.
Kids are commonly over scheduled with after school activities these days. This makes it a struggle to make time for piano practice.
Teacher motivation: The thing that keeps Corinna motivated is seeing the joy the playing the piano brings to students and to see them make continual progress toward higher goals.
