PIANIST BRIAN HOROWITZ: My son is now 5 years old.
He has grown up to be a jazz musician, and as a result, he’s a very musical boy.
He loves his piano and his music.
I was so happy when he started learning to play and playing well, I thought, he must be a really talented pianist.
But as I learned more and more, he started playing poorly.
He started playing badly.
He began to struggle with learning.
I started thinking, “How do I teach him?
What are the best practices for teaching him?”
So, I decided to take him to the music school I have in Sydney, and I went to see one of my favorite teachers.
I said, “You know, I know you have a very good music background, so I’m thinking, why don’t you come teach me some jazz music?
It’s something I really enjoy.”
So I decided that I would try to teach him the piano.
And it was a very difficult decision.
I had never taught a child piano before, and at that time I was a professional pianist myself, and in my life I had a lot of piano lessons, but I hadn’t really tried to teach a child pianist how to play the piano before.
So it was very hard for me to go into a new situation, and this was a situation where I could teach him piano, and it was an opportunity that I thought was very special.
The fact that he came to the school, which is very close to home, was an added bonus.
The music teacher was a lovely woman, and she took a lot into account when I was going through the process of teaching him.
And I think that was really important.
The piano teacher was very nice, but the music teacher had a very special skill in helping me to learn.
So, when he came, I had an incredible experience.
It was just wonderful.
And he has gone on to be one of Australia’s best pianists.
We’re not only here in Sydney to celebrate the birthday of his first teacher, we’re also here to celebrate that of our music teacher, who I will never forget.
And we’re all excited to see what he’s going to do next.
The pianist’s birthday is on March 22, 2019.
