Piano and Facilitating Thinking Skills

I enjoy reading blogs from a variety of different authors. In this featured blog post, please enjoy reading about what motivational factors there can be for all music students, all parents, and all teachers.

Here is a great quote included in the blog:

“Few of us have fully appreciated the contrast between gatherers of details and rules and skilled handlers of truth.  There may be some who know a little about a lot of things, but that does not guarantee that many of us know how to think deeply and insightfully about what we know.” (taken from the book Ordering Your Private World, by Gordon MacDonald)

Please click on the link below, read the article, ponder the ideas shared, read the book, and continue in the conversation.
