I remember when I left my music school in Brabant to go to the conservatory, that my saxophone teacher told me that I could come back to teach there. He told me that I had to learn so much and figure a lot of stuff out, that I would be a great teacher.
Today I had a conversation with a student of mine. This student (he/she) has to figure out a lot still. But I noticed that it is very hard for me to tell him (or her) how to work. My method in the end is experiment, trial and error. And I notice myself telling this to all my students, in some way. I cannot tell them what to do, they should find things out themselves, and find their own way.
