30 Day Plan

It’s time to plan for summer!

Doesn’t it seem like summer always gets here too soon?

If it is January and I have not made a plan by the end of the month, I know stressful times are on the way.

About ten years ago I decided that I wanted to maintain my piano students through the summer instead of letting them go.  At the same time I wanted to have a break from teaching. So,  I decided to put together a piano camp.

It was successful but so exhausting! I was grasping at ideas from everywhere and wasting precious time.    Today planning is soooo much easier! Music is accessible online, my expectations for the outcome are a little more relaxed and with couple of years of hindsight, I am ready to share a few ideas.

Start thinking about this…

Should you teach alone or invite other teachers to join?

Should you offer it only to current students at your studio or available to all?

What is the whole point of a piano camp? Do you want to make money, music or both?

How much will you charge?  

If you are calling it “piano camp” will you actually teach the kids to play the piano?

What ages will you include?

Will you put on a performance at the end of the camp?

Do this now…

The first thing that needs to be done is a little brainstorming.  Get your pencil and paper and mastermind your way through the initial stage of your idea.

 Then write down all the things you think you want to happen during the piano camp session.  Next organize your plan on a calendar and give yourself a deadline for when certain parts of the piano camp need to be completed, music ordered, flyers printed, etc.

But wait!

Were you expecting me to help you plan?

Why , yes! of course. And that is why you have read this far!
