Quote from: Susann K.Bye, that's it - from the everyday life of a piano teacher(...) No appreciation, no thanksWho am I? What role do I play? What is the role of the son? Why is this family sending their child to my class? What should he do there? Learn an instrument or be entertained? And what am I doing in the parents' eyes? Seriously teaching? Leisure fun? Afternoon care?The thoughts and questions race at top speed through my head and through my whole body:Is it actually normal that an almost nine-year-old child is not able to pack his grades himself?Is it actually normal that the questions I ask an almost nine-year-old child are still answered by the parents standing next to him?Is it actually normal to constantly ask me and my colleagues to do things that they basically don't understand?Do these people actually know what a music school is?Do these people actually know what studying music is?Do you know that teaching music is anything but a hobby?Did these parents actually say "thank you" to me? I can not remember. Maybe my anger is so great that I just hide the "thank you".No, I didn't hear a "thank you". I have a good memory.(...)
