Happies, January 2017


Teaching piano makes me happy. The music, ongoing student interaction, my sunny studio…I am blessed by rich and beautiful experiences everyday.

Here are a few from this month:

  1. Noticing and celebrating beautiful posture and hand position in a student
  2. Assigning a new piece which is based on a little-known published book, and discovering the student has read the entire series of books and loves them!
  3. The recital hall administrator waiving the fee to rent the hall because I had previously done some pro-bono work for them. I love living in community.
  4. Piano parents becoming close friends
  5. Cheerful, busy birds visiting the bird feeders directly outside the window next to the studio piano

Let’s celebrate the joy in our profession! What has caused you to smile lately?
