Give your Studio the Extra Energy it Needs this Spring.

The semester is drawing to a close soon. Spring break and Easter are past and it is almost time for students to disperse for the summer. But there is still at least a month and a half left of lessons before summer!

About this time in the spring, piano teachers often start to wonder what their retention rate for the coming fall will be. We ask ourselves questions such as will my studio continue to grow or just be a constantly revolving door? Will I have open lessons slots that I need to fill in the fall? Do parents see the value in how and what I am teaching their children?

And to add to all this we often look forward to summer and a much needed break or lighter teaching schedule ourselves. Often after spring break, teaching can get just a little too predictable. There are no more exciting holidays or events around the corner. In the fall, there is the excitement of Halloween and right on its heels follows Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Valentines. Once spring rolls around things can start to become a little too predictable. Not only that, but the weather is finally warm enough and student’s practice quantity and quality starts to drop as spring sports become a serious contender for kid’s attention.

But overly predictable lessons are the last thing teachers need in May when parents start to evaluate what activities their children will be participating in next fall. Instead, parents need to see us energetic and excited to work with their children and how much their children are learning and having fun taking piano!
