One of the Joys of Music Teaching

Today I have more of a thought than an article to share. This week, as I was teaching, I became a little overwhelmed with something that I think is completely amazing:

I can't really think of anything in music that is more awesome than taking a child who knows absolutely nothing to the point where they can glorify God in their music!

Do you teach anything? If so, what do you find most rewarding about it?

Oh yes, it is amazing to see how someone picks up piano! I've taught some piano, although I haven't had lessons for awhile. I always balked at the thought of teaching and then when my sister left I took over some of her piano students. Definitely a great learning process and worthwhile in the end!

You know I'm not much of a teacher, but lately God has been changing that here a little and there a little. :) Awhile back, I started helping Melody with her schoolwork and her favorite topic is learning to read. I can't express what I feel when she sounds out a new word and then looks at me with pure delight shining in her big brown eyes. What you said here is the best way I know how to describe the joy of opening up a brand new world to someone!!!

@ Olivia - there definitely is a need for godly piano teachers. :) That's neat how you get to teach even though you're not necessarily pursuing it seriously.

@ Kenzi - Mom doesn't let anyone else teach her kids how to read. ;) She, like me, is a teacher at heart, and loves taking them from reading nothing to sentences. :) That's so neat that you got to help Melody!
