Ted On Teaching

“I only try to impart the knowledge they’ve (the students) longed for, or the music that they’ve dreamed of playing. When I can. Sometimes what they really want and what I really know, are far from being the same thing. In which case I’ll send them to someone better qualified. Or occasionally in a situation like this, I’ll try to teach them how to see a new good way to go about learning one of the things they’ve asked for.”

“Teaching is a fine job.  I can’t say that I love every minute of it, because it’s tough reaching some students–they’re hiding way back there–and some days are just full of problems. And it can be hard work solving them. But overall, I wouldn’t trade this job.”
