This past July, I held our 2014 Summer recital at Morning Pointe Assisted Living, in Clinton, Tennessee. I cannot even begin to tell you how proud I was of my students. They have worked so hard, and I know all their effort paid off. Being a piano teacher is so rewarding in more than one aspect. It is always a joy to see everyone progress each year, but also, I have developed lasting friendships with the students. I am so grateful God has brought them across my path, and I pray I can challenge them not just in the musical aspect, but also in their Christian life.
Recitals usually bring butterflies, anxiousness, and out of control nerves for most people, and I’m sure everyone that participated could vouch for that, but after it’s over, and they have sighed a sigh of relief, they all realize it was worth the sacrifice invested.
