Of course not. We do it for the money!

Maybe that is because you came upon just 'this thread' and have not been reading about all the wonderful things teachers do for their students.

Where would we be without them?

Grow up, take a backseat,




Jazzed, I agree with a lot of what you're saying here, but this just isn't nice frown
I have gotten bashed for saying I teach for the student's enjoyment of piano/music. Some people don't think that's as important as education part, but there are many of us that do.

You are like the high school coach who won't let their star player play another sport or on any other team because you want all the glory for yourself. Get over it!

Not once do I get the impression that you people are concerned about your students enjoyment for playing piano. It's always some stupid thing that you feel offended and insulted because your student or their parents did something.

Grow up, take a backseat, and stop putting your ego before your students. The music will play on long after you are gone.

It's so often those who exhibit the least maturity who exhort others to "grow up." Your blanket statements about "you guys" and "you people" are ridiculous, and your communication style is inappropriate. You "don't care" about reviving an old thread because you apparently don't care about decorum at all. No one here deserves your spiteful invective, so climb down from that high horse before you get a nosebleed.
