I had never really thought about preparing other teachers to minister here at ASAPH. In my mind, I was the teacher. As this year progressed, my eyes opened to the possibilities of including some of my students in the teaching that happens here. One of my music theory students helped teach a course to the Brass Band members. One of my trumpet students spent a week working with beginner trumpet players. A drummer student began teaching kids drums, and he even found employment teaching for another organization! He’s making money teaching drums. Amen! The definition of an academy is a group of people with a shared interest or passion. I’ve always used the word for ASAPH activities…ASAPH Soccer Academy, ASAPH Bible Academy, ASAPH Music Academy. Now I see the beauty in a group of folks with a shared interest helping each other and moving forward hand in hand.
