I saw my prodigy for the first time today.

So apparently the parents' definition of "struggling" is not the same as my definition. She's not struggling at all with harmony. She has the Blitz Books. She understands the rules and applies them correctly. She just doesn't catch all of her consecutive 5ths & 8ves and has a bit of an issue with using chord ii. It's like teaching a 14-year-old without the hormones.

I was there and waiting to say hello after the first session but we were called to go in, so I did not have the chance.
Your presentation was great, with lots of valid points for teaching young beginners in the repertoire selected.

Couple of other points: I had forgotten just how good a steinway D sounds ;-),
Yes, 8th Grade is the new Preliminary.

Hey there! I was wondering if I'd seen you but hadn't realised it was you! I'm so sorry... I'm so glad you enjoyed it - was the rest of the day fun? I would have loved to have stayed... but I need to get up to the Print Music Trade Fair for Alfreds first thing in the morning (with my 3 year-old in tow) so I've been a bit frantic with being ready for that (and the seminars I'm doing with Alfred's next week...). Have a great day tomorrow - I feel terrible that we didn't get to say hello....

And yes, didn't the Steinway sound nice!! I did enjoy playing those pieces on it....
