Today a few of my students were talking with each other as they normally do after practice. It wasn’t until i heard one of the students ask why piano lessons or any other kind of musical teaching had to be so expensive…Then I started thinking.
As a musician and teacher, I wonder sometimes how people can say learning something useful, impressive and beautiful is expensive, but then again they can have money for fast food, cell phone plans and subscriptions to playing World of Warcraft. When it comes right down to it, I think it is a matter of priority. You have to ask yourself what is more important. What has the highest rate of return for the money you pay? In other words, what will benefit you the most many months or years down the road? Just a quick FYI: Chicks love musicians.
