A famous quote, sometimes attributed to artist Pablo Picasso, says “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” This idea may best define what music teachers do for millions of students year in and year out.
In many cases, this work may not be publicly praised. However, Pepper has interviewed numerous professional musicians who certainly have not forgotten life-changing music teachers who instilled in them a joy of music and a passion for their careers. For Teacher Appreciation Week, we are sharing some of these stories in the video below.
Pepper thanks all the teachers who are using their gifts to inspire their students every day. We greatly appreciate the difference you are making in our younger generations. If you have any “thank you” stories you’d like to share, please feel free to add them in the comments.
