Are Your Piano Teaching Skills Going to Waste?

by Daniel Patterson

Are Your Teaching Skills Going to Waste?

Do you find yourself correcting your students on simple note and rhythm mistakes day-after-day? That lessons are just a glorified practice session?

Does your studio see an endless parade of beginners?

This is not an uncommon problem that music studio owners face.

In this video, we explore solutions that will help students progress faster through their beginning material and how to avoid having to spend your career being a “note corrector.”

Oddly enough, Greg realized that dentists have figured out how to solve this problem… and he elaborates on that further in the video.

This will be relevant to you if you are:

  • A single teacher studio that wants to increase the quality of your students
  • The owner of a multi-teacher studio and want to provide meaningful work for your staff so you can retain them better
  • Feeling burnt out in your career because students don’t stick around
  • Feeling burnt out because most of your students are beginners and you spend a lot of time “cleaning up” pieces that your students are learning

When you experience frustrations in your career… it’s not good to let them fester.

A better alternative is to let that frustration drive you to find creative solutions to the problem.

Greg certainly did that with the solutions he created to solve this “beginner” problem.

We recently created a podcast episode where Greg goes into more depth about how he is running a music school with 300 students but with only 2 teachers. He also goes into more depth on the teaching system he created to solve this beginner problem.
