A Tribute to traveling piano teachers

I’m lucky that for decades I’ve been a stationary piano teacher, home-based for Skype, but having two youngsters whom I teach at their house up in the El Cerrito Hills. Fortunately, I get chauffeured to and from the location so I don’t have to schlep to Bart, or burn up gasoline in my non-existent car.

But in deference to some of my colleagues who routinely travel as part of their regular routine, I have to give them a bundle of credit for hangin’ in there.

Case in point. I learned first-hand about the challenges of in-house teaching when I happened to videotape two lessons, extracting their high points. (that is, as pertained to volume)

See for yourself:
