Lifespans: Age 4, Age 81, and a Song: Teaching Thought 1/20/2014

On thursday mornings, I teach voice/piano to a 4 year old and an 84 year yr old .

-4 year old is in the moment and takes learning casually…-81 year old feels passionately that he has to fit in as much learning into every day as he can.

-4 year old can’t be interested in any home practice time at all. Learns it all on the spot and retains it. The 81 year old practices carefully and dutifully  in order to meet his own standards.

Thinking about lifespans makes me think about my father, who passed away at 74. Here’s a song about how it affected me.
