This Letter Is To,
is my piano teacher and I think she is the one of the most finest
teachers I have ever had. The responsibilities that are expected
of you when you are in Elena’s class are reasonable and she
is expecting you to do your share as her student. Your share
is to practice and try your very best during the classes.
Elena has a
lot of confidence in you as a student and she knows you can
do what ever she wants you to do. You just have to have confidence
in yourself, and sometimes that is hard, and when Elena takes
the first step, by putting confidence in you, it becomes much
more easier. Elena also can see your capabilities and places
you accordingly, which makes it easier and much more interesting
to make the classes as fun as they can to you and I think that
she really thinks that teaching you is a joy because she takes
many troubles to go to each class.
Elena well prepares
you for auditions and recitals and it is your responsibility
as a student to practice for it. If for some reason you don’t
do well, Elena will be encouraging of it and help you learn
from you mistakes. I think with Elena as my teacher, I have
learned much more than piano, I have learned how to have confidence
in myself and how to prepare for important things.
you a variety of choices for what you want to learn. She believes
that if you like the song you will learn it better and faster.
She will give you a variety of songs that are your level and
play a little of each of them so you can see what you like,
so you can learn it better and have more fun with it.
Elena is a nice
woman generally and just because of how she is, nobody wants
to disappoint her and will try their hardest to do their share
of the work. If your hardest is not enough, Elena will be understanding
and try to see what she can do about it
Elena has been
my most encouraging teacher thus far, and it is all of her good
qualities that make me know for sure that I will never forget
One of Elena’s
many loyal students,
Archana Somasegar (Age 9)
