Wondering if it can be taught. I guess it’s one of those things where the subject needs to want it, or it will be forced and then… What is discipline if it is forced? Some reinforcement should be fine but I don’t want someone to respect me because of fear and neither should anyone do or want that. This isn’t about age. Children as well as adults, lack discipline or have selective discipline.
Music teaches discipline, as long as the students wants it. The teacher can find little pathways in the student’s idiosyncrasy and invite the person to be discipline.
The arts and sports teach you discipline.
To be discipline is to feel your whole body and mind are present in the moment when you are doing music, sports, arts. It’s when you want to learn more, do more and be the better you that there is.
