In my opinion, teachers don't get the credit they deserve. They don't only change our lives, they become a part of them. They are some of our biggest influences from such a young age. But how do teachers deal with parents who have high expectations? How do they manage their home studio?
From working with The Prodigy Child to dealing with a lack of practice, Bonetti has it covered. There are so many helpful tips and pieces of advice that will help both the full time music teacher and the at home tutor. However this book goes even further than that; special needs students and students with language barriers are also covered. Bonetti has already done the hard work for you.
As the daughter of a teacher, and a musician from a very young age, I can appreciate the detail that Bonetti has covered in this book. There are aspects of the job that can be easily overlooked; taking children on tours for example. This was such a large part of my life and the basis for so many memories in my adolescence. The tips offered to music teachers in regards to this subject alone, is invaluable.
This book is a great tool, and would make an great gift for anyone who is thinking about pursuing a career as a music teacher.
