Your time to shine

Early bird, or night owl? Once upon a time, from my earliest memories until about age 19 I would without a doubt say I was an early bird. However sometime during my sophomore year of college I started staying up later to get work done which made it harder to rise with the sun. All the same I can not say I ever became a night owl. I married someone who could pull off being both, getting up early while also staying up very late. Living with a person like that, along with being a piano teacher with a home studio for 19 years turned me into a solid afternoon person. That wasn't an option was it? But it is what I really am, or perhaps I am a mid day person. I would say my prime hours are about 11 am to 7pm.

  1. I wonder how I missed that you teach piano? I have a lot of respect for you and others of your craft — takes a lot of patience, but the payoff is usually big in the end, at the recital. My Mom taught piano for years — her students still love her, and run up to hug her whenever they see her. Very neat that is you line of work — besides being an excellent writer. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  2. I closed my home studio back in 2008 which is probably why it had not been oblivious to you that I had been a piano teacher. I majored in music education at college and taught in the public school system for 7 years before switching to teaching privately. I like to say studying to be a music teacher was my teenage rebellion. It was the first, and probably only, major choice I made that when against the wishes of the people who raised me.

  3. I had several years of piano lessons and can only play the stuff in the “Teaching Little Fingers to Play” John Thompson book. My 48 year-old brother is very accomplished and has played since five. My oldest daughter plays very well, too. My youngest and I stick with the iPod–we play that excellently! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’m a total night owl. I still get up early, but I don’t function well until mid-morning.
