Well, this is the first post on the Cork Music Collective‘s new blog! I am so excited to be starting this project now. With the economic crisis, people will be thinking much harder about how they spend their money and what experience they will receive for it. My aim is to encourage people–children and adults alike–to learn and not to be afraid of making mistakes or trying new things.
I am passionate about music and want nothing more than to pass on that love to everyone we can. Having each studied a range of instruments at different times in my life, I feel I have encountered every teaching style there is! Some work better than others, but the ones that work best always incorporate patience and understanding. A student is not just a computer into whom we can enter information and have them reproduce it immediately. Everyone learns in a different way, at a different pace.
The next few months will be about getting the word out about the Cork Music Collective, drawing up timetables and tuning the pianos!
Here’s to a great, productive year!
