This doesn't matter much when you teach a happy piece, because you'll speak to your student in a light and relaxed ton of voice.
But it is important for you to be aware of it when you teach a dramatic and emotional piece, so that you keep yourself in check and remain calm and in control.
Otherwise, you may just scare your students away.
