It's been almost a year since I started this blog! Challenging myself to write something twice a week has been enormously enriching, especially in the weeks when I didn't feel like I had much to say. Trying to find something new and relevant to write about each week strengthened my introspective skills and boosted my ability to explore topics that I might not have otherwise given a lot of thought. Because of this, I'm better able to ask my students follow-up questions that help me pinpoint what they're struggling with or thinking about.
So far, this blog has been extremely helpful to me as a teacher and musician, and I hope it's been a little bit helpful to you, too. I look forward to the next year of writing, learning, and exploring together!
