“That is the difference between good teachers and great teachers: good teachers make the best of a pupil’s means; great teachers foresee a pupil’s ends.”  – Maria Callas


A successful music teacher is one who can not only pass on the technical skills her students need to perform, but the professional experience they need to thrive. Here is music performed by women who are teaching the next generation of musicians.
