When Mayron Cole started teaching piano in groups, no one was doing it. She made up her own activities, learnt as she went, and gradually created her own curriculum which is now used in piano studios all over the world.
Mayron is here today to share her wisdom from 38 years of group teaching. From transfer students, to headphones, to studio policies – she has heaps of tips for you. Learn about the ins and outs of teaching in groups and make your studio a success by listening to this episode.
If you’re considering the switch to group teaching (or already teach in groups) then this is essential listening.
