I convinced my 10 year old student to start watching youtube videos of great players to help him develop a sense of what a good sound is.
I mentioned that Alison was a looker.
I had a phone conversation with his mom shortly after the lesson. He told his mom, " Jimmy said that Alison Balsom is hot and I have to see her!" She mentioned this as I could hear Alison playing in the background. I guess it worked.
As a teacher you have to use what ever angle you can to reach your students.
