The Best Partnership Ever -- Posted July 15, 2015

I retired on May 3rd. It had been a long run: for 33 years I taught piano and music. For 33 years my life was divided into time slots that accommodated both private and group lessons. Students came to my studio early in the morning and late into the evening. Some were very young; others had recently retired. They brought their lives with them to their lessons, their learning styles, their inner motivation (or lack of), and their hearts. Together we created music while we learned to work together as a team. Sometimes a solid partnership formed and sometimes, well, not so much!


When I was a young teacher, I believed that I could make everyone want to learn. Every single student would excel if I just said the right things, smiled enough, provided the right incentives, and gave enough praise. Somewhere along the line I realized that there were students who had no desire to learn, and there was nothing I could do to change that. I couldn’t force them. I couldn’t rearrange their lives at home to make room for practice. I couldn’t fulfill their end of our partnership. I could offer, but they were the ones who had to receive.


Of course, most students wanted to learn, and it was an absolute joy to see their musical growth. I’d provide the music, the instruction and the incentive. They’d go home and do the hard work, finding their own inner motivation and discovering that hard work brings success. They’d learn to express their hearts through music, and then they’d touch others’ hearts with beauty. It was a wonderful adventure to share with them.


I wonder what this can teach us about our partnership with the Lord. Are we students who’d rather not be there? Or are we on an adventure to learn and grow with the best Teacher ever? It’s a question worth asking ourselves periodically—not as a way to navel gaze but rather as a way to deepen our commitment to the One who has so much to teach us and longs for us to learn.


Sharing the adventure with you,


Cheryl Davis

Only a good teacher can able to handle her/his students nicely with love and affection. I think teaching is the noblest profession in the world as each teacher called as the second parents of students.musee d orsay tour
