This book is a shining tribute to the inspiration that music teachers can bring into the lives of their students.

Teachers give much but often receive little in return. Appreciation of your efforts may not come until decades later when a former student says, 'I'll never forget how it helped when you said....'.
You are amazed but humbled by the sheer power of a few ordinary words you'd long forgotten. The music lesson is the highlight of many pupils' week, like a spring of rejuvenation. Students remember that you listened and gave good advice.
Your excellent work is valued!

Sounds and Souls gives teachers insights to:
Motivate, retain and inspire students
Understand learning styles and personalities
Make rhythm and technique palatable
Prepare students for examinations and recitals
Help pupils handle criticism
Create positive parent-teacher relations
Manage the business, both studio or schools
Handle stress and deadlines with 'Me' time
