Seems I've been causing quite a stir here, and I'd thought I'd address it.
1. I LIKE contributing to forums. I find it interesting, and enlightening. I learn.
2. If you were to take off my web address at the bottom of the post, would the information I post be interesting, intriguing, conversational, and interactive? The answer is yes.
3. I post my site because it's my job, and like most of you, I'm proud of my job. I happen to have my own website. If you built a 100+ page site (much of it myself), I think you might be proud too.
4. I apologize to anyone who thinks I'm trying to take advantage of the people and the forum here. I'm not. You are all music professionals and therefore I respect your various viewpoints, although I might not always agree..
5... Just so you know.. I'm an American. I have been teaching music (piano included), for over 10 years, and have made it my full time profession for the past 7 years. by full-time I mean about 1,000 lessons per year + all the years it wasn't full-time. I say this so you know my opinion on a matter isn't just some guy, but a real man with real thoughts, and from a guy who for most intents and purposes has been there and done that. I've taught kids, adults, mentally and behaviorally-challenged people, television actors, kids of famous pop stars, (I live in LA), super-rich, rich, poor, middle class, broken homes, and everything in between. I don't know everything, but you can trust my opinion to not be some crap thought of the day.
Thanks for listenin'!!!
