THOSE WHO CAN: TEACH!
Yep, you heard it right. Those who can – they TEACH! Even if it's not officially through a formal lesson. The really great performers are happy and excited about sharing what they have learned with others. And, anything else you've heard about professional performers who are also teachers is WRONG.***
In honor of National Teacher Appreciation Week, we're featuring one of my favorite performers AND teachers, Tommy Harkenrider!
