I am uncovering better ways of teaching piano by doing it and helping others do it.
Through this work I have come to value:
Playing by ear over reading notes at all times
Creating your own music over executing other people’s works at all times
Performing frequently over taking graded exams
Improvising using scales and arpeggios over memorising them for exams
That is, while there is value in the items on the right, I value the items on the left more.
