About the Beginner Teacher Blueprint Course
From writing policies and setting fees to lesson planning and teaching your first lesson, our beginner teacher blueprint course will guide you every step of the way to building a professional studio that attracts dream students. Each module comes with a dedicated video tutorial guiding you through the 33-page workbook.
It is the perfect course for new teachers looking to open their first studio.
Explore the course - 9 modules covering essential topics
MODULE 1: What Will Your Studio Look Like
In this module, we cover a lot of ground: your studio location, lesson formats and lengths, and your ideal student ages and levels. Even if you already have some of these things started, this is a great opportunity to take a look at your studio and how it’s set up.
MODULE 2: Down To Business
Business doesn’t need to be complicated! If you put simple policies and processes in place in the beginning, you can avoid so many potential problems down the road.
In this module, you’ll learn the key things you need to set up for your studio (and what you can ignore for the time being).
MODULE 3: Finding and Scheduling Students
In this lesson, you’ll learn about marketing options for piano teachers. Then we’ll think about what you’re going to do when you actually get a new student through the door! What’s the best interview plan, enrolment form and how can you organise your schedule?
MODULE 4: Teaching Your First Lesson
The first lesson with a new student can be pretty nerve-wracking. It’s hard to know what they’re going to be able to do and how much you should include.
Never fear, we’ve got you covered. Let’s take a look together at how you can prepare for that first lesson with a new student – and what you should do afterwards to continue to grow and improve as a teacher.
MODULE 5: Practice and Assignments
We all know we need to get students practising. But how can you make sure they do? And how can you take their practice to the next level?
In this module, we’re taking a hard look at practice. How you set assignments, establish expectations and give encouraging but instructive feedback to students.
MODULE 6: Curriculum and Planning
Designing your overall curriculum might seem like a daunting task – but it can actually give you the clarity you need to make lesson plans more easily and effectively.
Knowing what kind of teacher you want to be, and the overall trajectory you want your students to take means you don’t get overwhelmed by all the possible ideas you could be trying. Instead, you’ll be able to focus on what’s really important.
MODULE 7: Performance Opportunities
For most teachers, having their students perform for others is one of their key objectives for their studio. Performing for others can increase your students’ confidence and provide a reward for all the work they put into their piano studies.
Have you thought about what type of recitals you want to have? That’s what this module will help you with – finding a location and finessing all the other details to put together a recital that represents your studio at its best.
MODULE 8: Parent Communications
It doesn’t matter how great your relationships with your students are and how fabulous your teaching is, if you can’t get along with parents. In most cases, parents are the ones paying the fees, and it’s ultimately their decision to continue with lessons or not.
This is the biggest sticking point for most teachers. This is what we see posts from stressed teachers about on Facebook or in forums – don’t be one of them! Parents don’t have to be the enemy if you take on board these tips and take a proactive approach to parent communication.
MODULE 9: Ongoing Professional Development
All teachers should be lifelong learners. Professional development is the key to not only staying relevant as a teacher, but also to avoiding burnout and maintaining your passion for teaching in the long term.
