About the Owner -- Chelsey's Story
My piano teacher used to tap my back with a fork when I slouched.
Yep. That was me. While I didn't hate lessons I also didn't like practicing. My teacher was gracious to
give me lessons and she was an amazing pianist herself but (by fault of my own, probably) she was less
Now, you're probably surprised that I quit lessons because I am the advocate for continuing lessons
consistently. Honestly, I am too....a little bit, anyway.
Here's the thing-as soon as I quit I had freedom to play whatever I wanted! I thrived. I grew. And by age
15, I accompanied church and begun mastering the organ.
So, would I have been better if I would've stuck with lessons. Probably. I think about that a lot. But I also
think I would have HATED it and maybe not been a musician today.
The moral? I've built this studio with this cautionary tale in mind. I'm so thankful that my parents sought out lessons for me but it may come as no surprise to some of you that I'm a bit difficult:). Here at Arias our goal isn't to just push through lesson books and pound theory and technique into our students' heads. No, our goal is to create and future life-long musicians. Musicians who love and appreciate many facets of music. Musicians who will be musicians for the rest of their lives.
