The time music teachers love and dread, not in equal measure.
Is there an age limit on music lessons?
A magic number where suddenly students are ready to learn music?
One of my favourite moments of being a music teacher was when I was teaching an enthusiastic six-year-old about canons in music.
You’re a wonderful music teacher.
You are. And I say that because only wonderful music teachers ask themselves this question.
Most of you will know EXACTLY what I am referencing here.
If you were trained as a musician in the last 30 years, then this is most likely how you learned to read music.
If you are a musician, trained recently, and don’t know what I’m talking about, then I have to say that I am glad for you. Because this is not how to learn, or to teach, reading music.
