Thank you for your post. You have a very *useful* attitude and had the
benefits of a very mature attitude as a high school student.

>>I adopted the same concepts to my clarinet playing, and as a
private teacher, however, I do so without the yelling and
belittling. I take Revelli's screaming, and convert it in
my heart to positive energy when I teach now. My students
think I am a SPAZ, but all of them love me, and look forward
to their lessons.

Thank you Dr. Revelli, for teaching me what to do, and what
not to do....<<

your other point is good...

>>The world of Music Education is not the same anymore; it's
changed - some say for the better. I believe the musical
discipline is greatly diminished as a whole....and more
students are allowed to perform in lessons, etc, with less
than their absolute best. Revelli extracted the best
musicianship out of many players who never thought they
could do it.<<

A few of us were discussing the "if i am one of the best players in my
school group, i am as good as i need to be (with undertones of "what more
could there be to attain)" attitudes we run into. And so often the
parents agree with this.

Excellence is in almost everyone's grasp -- depending on lofty goal and
persevering on a possible path.

I have followed with great interest the whole discussion, and again thank
you Doug for your comments.
