One of the toughest problems as a private music educator is scheduling. When your studio is full and all you can do is offer someone a time that they need to get out of work early to bring their child what do you do?
I think one answer is to have a big survey and find out times that work for everyone and times that don’t. The only challenge is that schedules change and as students get older and parents work more, everyone wants the same times.
There’s also the problem of the morning lull. For most private music teachers, we have our mornings open and don’t work until 2:00 or 2:30. How do you adjust as you have a family and want to spend time together with them at night?
What if music teachers could run a normal work schedule? How do you run your schedule?
