my teacher is VERY STRICT she used to make me cry when i was a little kid if i didnt practice. but in return for being strict and demanding, she has many great students. i have been taking lessons from her for nine years. she actually has a waiting list to take lessons from her. she emphasizes on fingering, techinque, and emotion. whenever you give a performance, she makes you memorize the piece, even during the piano guild when you have to play 10 pieces and the corresponding scales. some of her students are under the age of 12 and are already playing sonatas and other difficult pieces. she also puts her students in various competitions and the national piano guild after one year of lessons. i am glad that i have a strict teacher because i dont know if i would have gotten as far if i didnt have a teacher to push me forward.
