I was really interested to hear recently that well-respected teacher and presenter Dr Melody Payne from Virginia USA will be presenting an online webinar for piano teachers all about how to teach online piano lessons.
Keep reading for a special offer for topmusic.co subscribers.
In this increasingly connected world and with access to ever-improving communications technology (eg. Skype) actually decreasing in price, piano teachers have a great opportunity to expand the reach of their studio internationally by teaching students online.
This can open up opportunities for teaching during times when your studio might normally be empty (eg. early morning, during the day when children are at school or even during the night if you’re so inclined!).
This webinar will train you in the set up and implementation of online lessons, which will help you develop a contemporary and cutting-edge studio. You will learn about the equipment and tools you need to begin teaching online lessons. You will learn how to use these tools effectively to enhance your teaching, increase your income, and maximize your teaching efforts. If you want to be the most forward-thinking and trend-setting teacher on the block, if you would love to increase your client base, teaching hours, and income, and if you want to offer experiences to students around the world that they will remember for years to come, then online teaching might be just what you’ve been looking for!
This live webinar will be presented on Monday, October 27, 2014, 1:00 p.m. EDT (US time). For Aussies, this is around 4am for the eastern states, however Melody is recording the webinar so that anyone who registers will be able to watch a recording for a short time after the live broadcast.
Even if you haven’t really considered teaching online seriously, but want to find out more about how it works, make sure you check this out. Training like this doesn’t come around too often!
