Wonderful examples of motivating through powerful praise today at Louis’ first piano lesson at the Utah Piano Conservatory. My favorite all time example of positive feedback is when Carol Cherry, a piano teacher mentor of mine… offered this response to a student in a group class who gave an answer to one of her questions, “That is the right answer to another questions. Who else has an idea?” Love that! I always try and emulate her Mary Poppins heart as a teacher and as a mother.
