Nyke,

Thanks for all the thought-provoking questions! My lesson structure typically involves starting with a fun game or warm-up, then working on the assigned songs, and then spending a little time at the end on theory. The part I actually enjoy the most is all the preparation before the lesson -- researching ideas and planning and [I know this sounds crazy] even the office-work tasks. I don't really dread the teaching part, but I just feel neutral about it. What was I hoping to give? I was hoping to share my passion for piano with students. What was I hoping to gain? Low-stress, creative, meaningful work.
