First Day of Teaching

Today was the first day back at piano teaching for the year. It went well. I need to make shorter lesson plans so I don't feel pressured to cover so much each lesson. I'm looking forward to teaching each of the students some new music for a fall recital. I'm hoping most of them will play in the APT recital on October 25th.

Getting Ready for the year

Piano lessons are starting next week and I'm just about ready. I've done my planning for the week and assignment sheets are printed. Next is updating the website. I want to make some changes like giving each student their own page instead of having them all together on one. I will be giving the students music with a fall theme for an October 25th recital at Loyalton. I'm looking forward to this year with my students. I hope they are looking forward to coming back.

New Year Starting

I'm finally done with scheduling lessons for 14 students. What a chore! I'm teaching four days instead of three but I only have three lessons on each day. They will still be long days as I don't finish until 6p.m. This week starts the planning for the year's recitals and music and directions for each student and deciding where I want to take Cindy's Piano Studio in technology.
