I think sometimes the Lord gives us inspiration and guidance, and then we are to act on it. I teach piano and years ago I had an idea for a technique book. It has taken me several years to get around to putting it together enough to be able to use it. I have been using it, and refining it most of this year. I am surprised at how well it is working out. It not only addresses the problems it was designed to help, but others as well. At the risk of sounding prideful it is the best technique book I have ever seen, period. I have only had positive reviews of it, and a lot of success.
Yesterday I had a younger student beg me to let him start working in the book. He is only six, so I wanted him to have a little bit more background before starting on technique. Nope, his older siblings get to start on it and he wants to as well. There is nothing technically that he can’t do, so I told mom to go ahead and print him his own copy. It was a definite stroke to my ego to see someone begging for something I had created.
I am sure the source of the inspiration that got it going. I also put a lot of hard work into getting it working the way it is today. It is still not quite ready for the publisher, but I do feel a responsibility to do something with it. I guess we will have to see what is supposed to happen next.
