Whenever I meet a school owner that is getting unusual results in their school…
I almost always find that they are doing something unusual to get those results!
This is true of Mike Grande who owns several schools in New York and New Jersey.
The secret to his success is the subject of his upcoming book titled From Teacher to Coach (And Why You Would NEVER Want to be a Teacher).
In this episode, we take a look at the main ideas in Mike’s book, 3 ways to build rapport with students, his student-focused method for great retention, and how he trains his teachers to be coaches… not teachers!
This episode might raise some eyebrows… but it’s fast-paced, energetic, and will definitely challenge your thinking!

Here’s what we cover in the episode:
Michael Grande owns three music schools and employs over forty music Coaches. With over three decades of teaching experience, Michael has developed a new approach to teaching. He focuses on the student experience, rather than the conventional approach to teaching music and music theory.
Michael shares his teaching experiences as a music Coach and a high school social studies Teacher. His outside-the-box approach to connecting with students has shown that children today are in desperate need of Coaches.
