Group Piano for Adults

I am terrible at advertising my studio. Ter. ri. ble.

Needless to say I rely heavily on word of mouth.  I know I should have done more to fill my new adult class – but I was out of ideas and mostly out of money for advertising. So after flyers at the recital, emails to all those on my contact list, Facebook postings, etc. I had three registrations. Two of them were from MY OWN family members! The other? the mom of one of my current students.  Finally the day before class was scheduled to begin I offered a free demo class- and after a few out of state inquiries – a parent of a former student contacted me, showed up to class and enrolled! I always hesitate to cancel if the class is not at full capacity (6) because their might be late comers – and so I got my act together and it was time for class to begin!

This was the first time I used  Musical Moments and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised the atmosphere the authors convey and at the response the students had.  It was definitely stress free, knowledge filled and musical. We all left excited about the songs played, new friends and what will be accomplished by the end of the six weeks.

This is one of the easiest and enjoyable ways to get started teaching group piano lessons.  Even if the majority of the class is your family!
