A little inspiration from Frances Clark
I was browsing through the program of the conference which I am about to attend, the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy (NCKP), and I am reminded of how inspirational the words of Frances Clark, are, the music educator whose work the center and conference are based on. I wanted to share some of her quotes with you.
But first, a little about Frances from KeyboardPedagogy.com
“Dr. Clark believed passionately in the transformative power of music making in the life of every person – not just the young, not just the gifted, not just the privileged. What set Frances Clark apart from her predecessors, however, was her recognition that the quality of musical experience is directly related to the quality of the music teaching-learning experience. Thus she placed singular importance on the preparation of teachers.”
Look all around you for inspiration for your teaching. I hope these quotes have provided a little inspiration today.
