Frustrated Musician

When working at the office, as much as possible I try to avoid listening to “fast-paced” classical music, esp. Rossini’s William Tell Overture.

How To Make Your Own Guitar

…Or for your child, niece, nephew, or grandchild. πŸ˜‰

“No One Forgets A Good Teacher”

“Teacher Shi, many teachers had taught here. We used to believe that students from ‘White Stone’ were very dumb. We were afraid the water here raised dumb kids. Wow! how come after you arrived these students are no longer dumb? They can walk along this path and all get very good results. You have a pair of magic hands!”

“Have the right attitude and don’t look down upon weak students. This is the most important. You can’t develop an attitude of ‘You’re weak and it’s hard for me to teach you.’ It’s wrong to think like this. That should be our first principle.”

β€”Teacher Shi Yuan Yi, Bai Yan Primary School
