During 50 years of teaching, my students taught me many valuable lessons. Most specifically, I learned that when a student is introduced to more than one concept at a time, it is confusing. If reading notes is combined with letter names or counting with numbers, it is overwhelming.

Learning music is much the same as learning a language. The child learns to speak sounds, then words, then sentences. Much later, the child learns to spell the words and learn the grammar. In like manner, the student must learn to create a tone, then recognize that tone on the paper, and gradually put many tones together. It is not until the playing becomes fluent that elementary theory is introduced."
