Teaching Piano

Whew!  Right when I start thinking it’s pretty easy, it starts getting hard again.  Things that come naturally for some students can be so challenging for others.  Then you find yourself doing twists and turns to try to get them to learn a concept.  I hate making them feel bad, and I want them to know that it’s my job as a teacher to get them to learn!  I hope that I can make that clear to them.  Of course, I need them to practice.  Well, I wonder what I can do.  Even though some days I think it might be pretty cost-effective to start a piano studio someday, it also is really time-consuming, the amount of research I have done and am doing and the resources involved.  I think I like it, but do I have what it takes?   My blog has become a virtual notepad of sorts.

Just some resources for me to look into

Shabu Shabu

Went to a shabu-shabu restaurant today.  It was delicious, but kind of expensive!  I love shabu-shabu.  It is perfect comfort food, yet not heavy like most comfort foods.  It’s also perfect for the winter months, and warming oneself up, especially since our gas bill was enormous!

Next time I go to a Japanese market, I know what I’m getting!  Really want to make this someday: this shabu shabu

Vegan Bowls: Sweet Potato and Chickpea “Buddha Bowl”

This is so good, and I didn’t even do it right.  Next time, I have to do it with the proper tahini sauce (did you guys know that lemon juice and maple syrup together is pretty delish!) and with the broccolini.  MMMMM.

Also, my sweet potatoes definitely needed more time in the oven.  Boo.  So that’s where blogs like this come in.  Diameters, THANK YOU.  I hardly make the same thing twice, much less the same way.  Except mac and cheese.  And dumplings.

Also, I want a rabbit.

Also, more ABC cooks.
