In the final three Chapters we present the application of our practice, which illustrate what we have 'preached' throughout this book: culturally and developmentally appropriate, and relationship-based practice - founded on recognition of individual differences in young children, using play as the context for teaching, and having a deep and abiding sense of respect for the child and family - in action. This chapter explores teaching individually through the lens of my journey in teaching children how to play the piano as a studio teacher.
