Thank you Anula and Deborah. This has been the crux of my thoughts for the last two years, and it's about time we talk about all of this. There is so much more to discuss and I hope we continue down this exact road. Right now for me, this was better than an actual class. Love you both.
This was AMAZING. I am a teacher in training and even though I've only been teaching for 7 months, I already feel like i'm experiencing this "identity crisis" in which method or style I "should" be teaching. This just reinforces to allow myself to be me and do the best I can!
Bravo! I hope many will view this discussion. I believe it also is about one's "identity" - when one's identity is challenged , then you will have push back, even if the means to the end is peace for all.
As someone who’s first career was as a classical orchestral musician, I’ve lived through this discussion before- the lineage through William Kincaid (the Joseph Pilates of American flutists), classical vs. jazz, etc. Can’t we just get along and love the Method? It’s what Joe (said he) wanted! Thank you for opening this dialog on PA.
Right now for me, this was better than an actual class. Love you both.
