Passion over perfection…

unknown

So I have finally made up my mind on what skill I wanted to learn for my learning project. For weeks I have contemplated, I wanted to choose something I could bring with me inside my classroom and share with my students (and teach them as well)… so I chose to learn how to play the piano. I have always been fascinated and passionate with the piano and people who played it.

 

My son who is 8 years old has just started piano lessons; I thought it would be neat to lean with him as well. I will be sure to share our jam session! J

 

I excited to start this new journey and for this passion I have for the piano to grow… passion over perfection!

 

I did some research on piano and found some fun/good positive benefits I thought I would share…

  1. Hey Skylar!

    Great idea learning piano, if I had a keyboard I would have chosen the same thing. It’s almost like a forgotten art. And every school loves a teacher that can play piano on their team. It’s also very cool that you and your son can develop this skill together! Good luck! 🙂

      Thank you, I think we’re both enjoying it so far! I look forward to bringing it inside my classroom; and I totally agree about it being a forgotten art! Thank you again, and good luck to you as well!
