I believe that the U.S. has fallen in the education ranks not because we have a shorter school calendar, but because we have replaced competition in the classroom with the ‘feel good’ philosophy that everyone deserves to be rewarded, regardless of effort.

I like to go into the fact that just because they have an F in my class does not mean they are a failure, and I don’t want them thinking they are a failure because of this. I’m serious. They are teenagers with jacked up lives, and just because they weren’t able to navigate the dangerous world they find themselves surrounded by in order to prove to me, or the state of California, that they can write an essay, doesn’t make them a failure in my book. I’m serious. And if you think so, you might need to check yourself. Just remember what I always say: If you were their age, living their lives, with their parents, you wouldn’t be passing your class either.
Learning to read music notation is vital when starting to play any instrument, including piano. This will involve you learning how to understand sheet music, which is basically a transcribed recording of the music formed into notation. Notation is often considered a book for musicians.
