How to refocus your teaching when it’s time for a change
Student scenario #1: I’ve been teaching for quite a while, but it’s always been a matter of squeezing lessons into my schedule. I haven’t been intentional about making my teaching a real part of my harp life, instead of just something on the side. But now I think I’d like to concentrate more on teaching and take on more students, and to do that I need to up my game. How do I start?
Student scenario #2: I’d really love to give my teaching a more professional feel. I think it would help me make a little more income from teaching, and I also think it would motivate my students and their parents to treat their lessons with a little more respect. What can I do to rebrand my studio?
Whether you have four students or 40, there are several worthwhile reasons you might consider a studio reboot. This is more than just redecorating your harp room. A true reboot will help you better align your teaching philosophy with your day-to-day reality. It is an opportunity to make your studio a business that reflects you—your outlook on teaching, your own harp life, your personal style, and your lifestyle goals.
