Feeling like the queen I am today. So grateful for the support and love I get from my family and those I care about. Without them my dreams would NOT be possible. I push myself further than the average woman, I make sacrifices for my future and my throne, always remembering this queen comes first.
Take time to acknowledge your accomplishments and time to simply reflect. Indulge in self love!
Use your time wisely to put your plan into action. That’s what queens do! My action time is usually on a plane, (which I am writing this from the cockpit at this very moment) or on the Beach. Make epic things happen for you, you only have one life to live queens, make it great! Stay positive and tell yourself you are a beautiful, strong, dope, magical, Boss Babe Queen EVERYDAY. #Inlovewithme xoxo (a friend told me I need to start writing more inspiring posts for those of you that just need support and encouragement. I spend most of my life helping others and pushing them to be the best version of themselves so I don’t want to forget you beautiful IGers)
Music is more than just a thing you can do. It’s more than a skill. It’s more than a talent. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s extremely important to do the work, to set goals and progress toward them. I set goals with my students on a consistent basis. I believe it’s important to practice techniques and learn theory and memorize note names and positions on the staff and key signatures and scales and challenge ourselves with new pieces. However, it is not the most important thing. To me, the most important thing about music education is developing a strong foundation of love for music. Each individual student comes with different needs and different priorities and they cannot be treated the same. Sometimes it might take longer to get through a lesson book or to progress through levels and sometimes I find myself wracking my brain trying to create a lesson that will help each individual student get through their challenges and toward the goals they have set. Sometimes scouring my mind for material that will inspire them and keep them steady on their journey. I’ve seen my students thrive is so many other ways and truly, truly emit a love of what they are doing. A love that when carried forward in to lessons and auditions and examinations and performances makes all of the hard work and goal setting worthwhile. A love that keeps them coming back excited to learn and excited for what we might get up to each week. A love that has formed an amazing community of people all enthusiastic and alive with the pure joy that music brings. So, when new clients come to me wanting their child to rush through examinations or to be able to play like a little prodigy within the first few weeks, I try to make it clear that that is not what we are about and there are plenty of other music schools who focus purely on those kinds of priorities. We have many students who have aced exams and who have won competitions and who have been successful in auditions and who go on to impress everyone with their performances. I truly believe that those things came to fruition because of their love of music. A love that causes them to want to work hard. A love that when witnessed is truly magical.
