They come in all ages and in all abilities. They have their strengths and things they need to work on.
Their perception of themselves is key. It takes a great deal of courage and a sense of always wanting to learn and grow.
Is it easy? It is not. You have to be brave and vulnerable at the same time. Quite the balancing act. You have to be bold but also calm. Some students are naturally calm and some are naturally bold. But to have both is a blessing.
In the end, it becomes about persistence, and celebrating the smallest of success that will help you to achieve making music!!
