I tried SO HARD to not make this week's video too sad, but it looks like I've dabbled in both happy and sad in this one.
Some of you have asked me to talk about what it's like to transition to a new teacher, and it actually made me think of what it was like to leave a teacher, especially a beloved one.
I already thought I appreciated her so much when I was a kid, but when I grew up and became a teacher myself, oh boy, did I learn just how much that amazing woman did for me. She put aside her love of the piano, her pride as a teacher, and even her income to make sure she was making the healthy choice for me.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I owe Carmencita Aspiras my entire musical career. Thank you so much, Mrs. Aspiras. <3
