Are lessons with you fun?

Are lessons with you fun?


I was asked this question recently and I've heard it before.  Although at face value it can seem like a trick question (unintentional, of course) it is clearly an important and valid question especially when it seems as if music learning isn't fun.  I have fun.  It seems like my students have fun.  We smile, we laugh, I challenge and provide them with tools, they work, they deliver, we smile, we laugh.  I guess the real question is, what's meant by fun?  Is it always fun to run laps/drills/workout or play the game?  But can you do one without the other?  No, in fact, they are essential to each other.  I think my students get addicted to their success. When students are able to gain self esteem through consistent success... yes, it gets fun.  I hope it even goes further and they find the joy in learning, working, and succeeding.
