    I am concerned about students accepting commitments for which they are

    not prepared. In the past I have encouraged approval of repertoire

    before accepting an opportunity. This has been viewed as constraining.

    Now students are wanting to commit to repertoire far beyond their

    abilities for payment and for exposure. I would like to see how other

    teachers face this challenge.

    I have told them that any


    Anita-Maybe the way to handle this is to take a proactive roll.

    As far as the commitments….it depends on what kind.


    Isn’t it an even bigger problem when they’re over-committed to other activities like riding, skating, and have no practice time?


    I’m an adult student who has accepted opportunities to play at my church and am also in an Harp Choir outside of my regular private lessons.
