I believe that when it comes to learning, no matter what the subject, that interest in the subject is the key motivator to success. It doesn't matter how quickly or or long it takes to figure out how to play piano well. All that matters is that the student enjoys it while he/she is pursuing it.

After defending my dissertation, I seriously thought about what I really want to do in life. I have always wanted to play the piano, but considered myself musically challenged. So, the first question that I asked Vicky was: Would you agree to teach a middle-aged absolute beginner who is possibly tone-deaf? I failed to mention (or didn't know it at the time) that I have difficulties following instructions and cannot do assignments in chronological order.
Taking lessons and getting to know Vicky is one the best aspects in my Minnesotan life. I realized that learning a new skill requires a lot of repetition and this has made me more tolerant as a teacher (I teach German and Norwegian.) Vicky has been infinitely patient and has guided my progress with consideration for the most important thing - the joy of learning.
