For the last 2 weeks I have been playing timpani with the English National Ballet.
Every show I see children looking at the stage and orchestra with a dream-like imagination filled with excitement.
‘I could do that!’ It is this state I try to create in my lessons. Your pupils may not become professional musicians or a ballerina but the excitement you can instil will enable them to become anything in life they truly desire.
Give them that gift and the rest will take care of itself.
