I have loved all the input and ideas this week about studio policies, and now plan to implement a couple more things in my own studio. Thanks to our wonderful contributors for their great posts!
Ok so I can't believe another week has already gone by! I am so happy that spring is here - anyone else? It has been a beautiful week here in Utah! Here are the poll results for both of our polls about studio policies:
What kind of studio policy/contract do you have?
What is your make-up lesson policy?
Our three "other" responses for this question were as follows:
- I make up lessons when they can switch with another student in the schedule
- For each 13-week semester, the student gets 12 lessons
- I have one day per month set aside for make-up lessons, if needed
Thank you to all who participated in our polls this week! Polls are a great way to participate and give your input, without having to actually type something :) So take a second each week and share your ideas with the click of a button :)
And now for our new topic: Your Studio Space. We want to hear all about how you set up your studio space: do you have a studio in your home? If so, how do you make it nice and inviting to your students? Is your studio outside of your home? How do you organize your studio and your teaching materials? Any money-saving decorating/organizing tips for a piano studio? Anyone want to share a picture of their awesome studio to give us all a little inspiration? How do you decorate your studio? What fun things do you do with your studio to make it an environment conducive to learning? What hangs on the walls in your studio?
Anyway, you get the idea! Seriously, we'd love to hear from you! Leave us a comment or shoot us an email. We'd love to feature some of your great ideas on the blog.
p.s. a little reminder, please go take our reader survey! We'd love to know more about our audience, and more about the things that are important to you as a teacher that you'd like us to discuss on the blog.
Have a wonderful week!
