Dandelion, being a weed, was ostracised by the flowers in their magical kingdom. The final blow came when the beautiful Rose became the queen of the flowers while she was cast aside. In a combination of envy, hurt, loneliness and anger, she left the kingdom. Through chance, she found a book of spells that made her a witch. She wreaked mischief and havoc for the flowers, but in the end, realised that friendship could not be forced. She made amends, and was finally accepted by the flowers as their friend and protector.

“Experts in literacy and child development have discovered that if children know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they’re four years old, they’re usually among the best readers by the time they’re eight.” — Mem Fox's book Reading Magic

Do not be over-reliant on answers provided for theory exercises. Learn to think for yourself, as this will help you grasp the concept and train you to work out each theoretical problem diligently, heightening your understanding. - Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

Practical and theory are not two entirely different, separate concepts. By incorporating theory with practical, the musician is able to develop a further understanding of the music, the ability to improvise or transpose certain passages to suit their style of playing, or to create their very own brand of accompaniment. - Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

“Do not straightaway Google song sheets for your favourite songs. Try to DIY. Reach out with your musical sense and play out the melody. Use chord progression to add accompaniment to the melody. Decorate the tune with catchy ornaments. The song will be more meaningful with your own personal touch.” — Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

Music is connected in all elements. We cannot isolate a piece to teach without involving any aural awareness, and neither can we teach theory without ‘HEARING’ the theory, (e.g. we have to ‘HEAR’ the pitch of a sharpened note when we teach the accidental - sharp ‘#’). This cohesive organisation of thoughts and actions will make your lessons invaluable and interesting to your students. With it intertwined together, the lessons become ‘alive’ and musically enriching. — The ART of Teaching by Alice Chua
