Musician On The Net – Information and tips

Information and advice for passionate musicians

Why teaching? 

This will be my last instalment on my story… Next blog will get to more important things, like actual music related stuff. 
Anyway, I thought I would share why I started teaching. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would teach. In fact, I was quite against the idea as I thought I wouldn’t be good at it. But life has a way of changing you… 
I actually wanted to become a concert performer but realised in high school that was not for me.  Then I thought with my passion for music history, I would be a musicologist.  The only problem with that idea was that I could not look at scores etc so I decided not to do that. So I studied no position instead… and left that after 2 years. I got married, had kids etc. But in 2010 I started thinking about my life. I thought if I was going to do something with my music, now was the time. What did I want to do? Teach piano so I can excite my students with the same passion as I have. 
So here I am… I have taught for 4 years now. I haven’t ever had a full studio yet, but every single student I have taught has given me experience. I’m hoping this year will be the year where I start to gain students. 
So far, I have someone posting content on my facebook page and twitter feed daily. I am also going to try and run facebook ads. I’ve decided to target adults and homeschoolers, and students with special needs. Both online lessons and in person.
