Life sure presents us with great learning opportunities! This year is no exception. I have gone from never teaching an online piano lesson, to teaching over 500 in a couple of months. The learning continued for my students- and teaching took on a whole new "platform" for me!
Thanks to ongoing professional development opportunities, I am able to continue to expand my knowledge and have been able to find the resources I need so I could make to move to online teaching with few issues.
I am currently enrolled in the Ultimate Music Theory Elite Educator Program. I am finding myself inspired to continue to elevate my studio and continue to strive to be the best teacher for my students.
This spring has certainly been different for me! But one thing has remained constant. I love teaching, I love writing music and making games and I look forward to continuing to learn more so that I can be the best teacher that I can be for my students.
I am now learning about screen sharing - how to use apps in online lessons - how to "Zoom" with a class of students and more!
Online lessons will remain a part of my studio in some form or another well into the future.
The learning continues - be it in person or virtually!
