Creativity in Piano Lessons – Sam Holland (Quote of the Week)

“If language were taught in school the way most of us teach music, it would be crazy. It would be like saying, ‘We’re going to teach you a language, but all we’re going to do is let you read and reproduce other people’s ideas until you get them right. You can’t say anything to express your own ideas and feelings.’ “
