To my future music students,
Let me start off by saying how much of an honor it is to be teaching you, after many years of stressing over exams; recitals, test, and more I'm finally here, in front of you. Getting ready to share with you the love and passion I have for music.
It was not easy getting here, but I guess I should start off this letter, on how exactly or what was the moment I knew that music was what I wanted to do. Well, it was my Junior year of high school.
I remember after my high school band director retired, I was devastated. But then, our new band director came in and things started getting better. My band director and I grew close, although I have known him for a very long time.
Most of the music teachers I've had in my life gave up on me, and that broke my heart. You see, I suffer from anxiety and ADHD. And it would get annoying to some teachers that I had that, and they in a way would give up on me.
But this band director didn't, he kept pushing me to accomplish my goals and wouldn't let me give up. After seeing how passionate; he was about teaching music, and how he wouldn't let anything stop him from accomplishing his dreams or helping his students. It inspired me and made me realize what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Teach music.
Since then, I've continued to push myself to do my best and never gave up on my dream.
There are a few things that I want you, and the rest of my students to learn and take with them, even after they've graduated, and moved on from my classroom.
I want you to believe In yourself. It may be tough at first but with a lot of hard work and dedication. You can do anything you out your mind to.
Be kind to one another, there have been fellow band mates in the past who were nothing but cruel to one another. Please, treat others the way that you want to be treated.
There are so many other things that I want you to take from me being your teacher, I promise that I will never give up on you; I will do whatever I can, as your teacher to help you succeed. Never be afraid to come and ask for help. I'm very excited for the day that I become your teacher.
To my future music students, never stop believing in yourself and play loud and proud.
Sincerely, Your future music teacher
