New Piano Student- John

Parents often comment to us that they want their children’s piano teacher to make lessons “fun”. Many teachers respond to this desire by working hard to make lessons more pleasurable for students. This certainly makes sense to a degree, since lessons that become drudgery are hard to continue and succeed at over the long term. However, the single-minded pursuit of fun may not be the best reason for, or approach to, piano lessons. Lessons should be comprised of real learning, leavened with fun aspects. There need not be a dichotomy or conflict between learning and fun. It’s just a matter of approach, on the part of both the parents and teacher.

For over 20 years, each May & October an intergenerational family of 12000 people join together upon the beautiful Lake Eden land to experience the power music, art and culture has to transform lives, strengthen community, and foster unity.   LEAF Festival takes place on the site of the old Historic Black Mountain College with a stunning mix of rolling hills, lakes, streams, and mountain beauty on hundreds of acres of comfortable camping grounds. LEAF scours the globe for artists, musicians, performers and facilitators that are not only masters of their craft, but who also care deeply for the power of arts education.

LEAF Community Arts is a non-profit organization in which all donations and festival profit goes towards music and arts education programming locally and globally! Since 2004 LEAF Schools & Streets has served over 45,000 youth with programs in over 20 Western North Carolina locations while LEAF International features Cultural preservation programs in 10 countries worldwide. Your attendance at LEAF not only provides you with an amazing weekend experience with friends and family, but supports youth with an opportunity to live out their dreams through music and arts.
