45 minute lessons are well underway and I am so grateful for the extra 5 minutes!  I have booked the mid-year student concert for the end of WEEK 9 this quarter.  We will begin preparing for that after the June school holidays.  This week I will be putting photos into the studio Journal and chasing up parents who have not passed in studio policies or photo permission forms.  My next little project is to write student progress sheets for each level from Primer through to level 2B.  

So many changes!

Parents, I am aware that things have been changing alot lately.  Please understand that I am not intending to change things every year.  I am just trying to set up a smooth running business and a successful teaching method.  When I decided to change piano methods mid-2008, and changed to Piano Adventures,  I started reading posts made my Piano Adventures teachers - teachers in the US.  I have learnt a lot from them!  There is so much to learn about the best way to run a studio and the best way to teach piano.  I am working hard to do the best I can.  I am sorry if any of you feel unsettled by the changes but things should settle down a bit from now on.  In the long run, I have to teach the way I think is best.  I will not be moving the studio again for at least 5 years! and lessons will stay at 45 mins from now on.
