Tag: 怎樣建立一個成功的音樂教學室

Do you want to teach music?

“You should give up now – it doesn’t pay well.”

“You should get a real job.”

“You can’t make money being a musician/music teacher.”

“You should just get a teaching job at school or a government job.”

“You can’t make stable income teaching (enter any music instrument name).”

“You should study something else than music.”

 

Have you heard these questions – or insult – before?

I have, many times, directed towards me or towards my teaching staff and music friends.

At one point I thought that’s not working for me either. So I thought of doing something else or doing it differently. But I always came back to it.

I don’t give up easily. When I want something, I make it happen.

So I started playing piano, I studied abroad in piano performance, I worked as a pianist, I taught piano, I started my piano studio, and then piano school. I wrote books about piano teaching and playing. I consulted piano performers and piano teachers and music teaching studio owners online. I ran an online music teacher training platform, etc., etc. The list was endless.

And I made money teaching music and piano while enjoying my work. I love teaching, I have immense passion in helping people, I do.

When I get exciting and joyful feedback from piano students/parents/piano teachers about how much they’ve enjoyed my lessons/courses and how I’ve changed their lives for the better, I become so touched sometimes I would even cry with joy.

But hey, this is not about me, this is about YOU.

Being successful in music teaching requires hard work, in some ways more than having a regular job. Especially when you are teaching freelance or on your own. You don’t have the benefits that most people do: you don’t have the paid holidays, the health benefits, the regular time off (because you perform/teach piano on weekends/holidays). People think it’s so great to have your own work! Yes but they don’t see how hard it is for you to maintain your own students, plan your own work schedule, annual student concerts, piano exams, competitions, lessons, fees, parents, the list goes on and on. Wait, did I say no paid holidays so every time you take a vacation you cringe on how much money you didn’t earn on your trip to Japan/Thailand/Italy? And you can never take the same days off to hang out with your family and friends who have a regular job schedule? Heck, you sometimes even forget it’s public holiday because you are working on that day! And if the weather’s bad and everyone gets to stay in and cheer for the extra time off, you are upset because you don’t get to work and get paid?

Ok, that may have gone a bit too far and too much details – I personally had thought about all of the above and that’s why I can write them out easily in one minute.

But still, I love teaching, whether I am teaching piano students or piano teachers or other music instrument teachers. I simply love sharing knowledge and helping others, from teaching piano students how to play better, to teaching piano teachers how to teach better, then to teaching other music instrument teachers on how to build their music teaching career. It is important for the piano students and piano teachers and other music instrument teachers know how they too can be successful in their piano playing and piano/violin/flute/cello/erhu/singing/guitar teaching.  

When I teach a piano student, I influence one person (and perhaps a little on the family too). But when I teach a piano teacher or double bass teacher, I influence someone who can influence many students of their own. I really like the idea of that.

[:en]It’s time to start your music teaching career![:zh]你準備好開始你想要的音樂教學嗎?[:]

[:en]I have been giving this a lot of thought.

I wonder what more there is to help you as a music teacher, no matter you teach piano/violin/double bass/any kind of music instrument.

Trust me, I have been there before.

I had gone through a difficult time trying to build my own teaching studio. It was a lot of effort and hard work to make it happen, but most of all, it took me a long time to find out what I actually needed to work on to build a successful teaching studio.

Believe me, it wasn’t easy at all. At times I wanted to give up. I am sure you feel the same way sometime yourself, feeling like no one really cares about your work.

But obviously I didn’t give up, and that’s why I am writing this and you are reading it right now.

The struggle to build a meaningful and financially rewarding music teaching career is real. But there IS a way to do it, more effectively and efficiently, with great foreseeable result.

For me, it has been an amazing and rewarding experience in many ways. I struggled alone on this journey: I wished I had proper guidance from someone who had built their own studio successfully and showed me the way instead, so that I wouldn’t have wasted so much time looking for the way I wanted to teach.

And that is why I created this new training program for you. I know you are out there looking for that way to make it happen. Let me help you: the training program is designed to do that for you and many other teachers who have so much passion for music and teaching but don’t really know how to change the way they are building their studio/career. I like to take away your frustration and struggle so that you can contribute to our music teaching community.

There are various levels of the program you can join. From whole online program and small courses bundles to single lecture, you can choose whatever packages that suit your need. I do believe you learn best going through the whole program.

You can also opt to do private coaching with me on teaching as well. There I can customize for you the topics you really want to focus on.

I know you have so much to offer. And we need you to teach the students who are eager to have a great teacher just like yourself.

Let me show you the way.

[:zh]我自己建立教學室時,也經歷了一個艱難的時期。要實現這夢想需要付出很多心機和努力,但最重要的是,我花了很長時間才找到一個建立成功教學室真正方向。建立教學室成功之後,在很多方面都是很有意思和滿足感。我確實希望當年有人可以指導教我怎樣去做,這樣我就不會浪費那麼多時間去尋找建立我真正想要的教學室的方法,令我可以專注於音樂和教學上。

我相信我的課程能夠為你和許多對音樂和教學充滿熱情的老師改變他們建立教學室的方式/教學事業。我喜歡帶走你的挫敗感和掙扎,這樣你就可以為我們的音樂教學社區做出貢獻。

我們甚至將整個課程分解為 多個小的課程 / 單一課程,因此不需一次過參加整個課程。當然,你報名參加整個課程會受益最多。
