If we taught piano like we teach leadership, here are a few options of how we’d do it.
- Put twenty or more people who wanted to learn piano in a room
- Lecture about music theory for a few lessons
- Talk about the lives of historical famous piano players
- Point them to a piano on a stage with an audience full of people who will evaluate them and tell them to play
- Tell them it’s okay to make mistakes, everybody does
- Wish them luck and have them play
- Put them in a room with other piano players who learned from other piano players who learned from piano players etc, but no one learned from someone who learned to teach piano
- Hope they learn through osmosis
- If they don’t learn fast enough, kick them out
- Don’t do anything
- Hope they read a bunch of books on the subject
- Hope they learn on their own
