My student D's mother is a violist with a degree from a prestigious conservatory, so it was with the teeniest bit of trepidation that I took him on as a student this past fall when he was looking for a new teacher.

I cannot tell a lie; I was a little pleased when, at a recent lesson, his mother said to me, "Congratulations, Sarah. He is sounding so much better. He has already come so far under your teaching."

Of course, he's the one doing all the work.

But I can be proud of him, right?


  1. Ooh, that would make me nervous, too. I think you're allowed to be proud of yourself after that compliment. :)

  2. I'm with Emily. You can be proud of yourself for taking on the rather scary challenge, and proud of the positive results. Your students really are fortunate to have such a creative teacher.
