I’m late with this announcement. I’m late with everything. This has been a crazy busy year: David and I each wrote two books, taught about 25 students a piece, a, while he taught up to seven college classes, and I went abroad at least half a dozen times.
But I’m pleased to announce that The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Teaching Music on Your Own is out.
Whatever your instrument: if you are teaching independently, there’s probably something in this book to help ease the way. I relied not only on my experience, but canvassed hundreds of other music teachers, and included their input, as well.
The book covers business issues (getting started, pricing, marketing, studio policies, late fees), student relations (everything from practice skills to working with different age levels), teaching resources, and problem solving.
