If you play the piano or guitar and you want to make some extra money, especially now, with the recession starting to bite hard, then keep reading. I will show you how to teach piano or guitar in your local area with the help of how teach piano and how teach guitar student courses from learn and master.
How To Teach Piano and Guitar – Essential Requirements
There’s actually only one essential requirement and that is that you can play the piano or guitar to a reasonable standard, that means you are comfortable playing in front of people or an audience. Amateur, semi-pro or even professional players can teach piano or guitar and even in this recession, there’s lots of people still want to learn to play piano, keyboards, drums and guitar and they are willing to pay good money for it. So, are you ready to get started, do you want to make extra cash, then let’s get cracking.
How To Teach Piano and Guitar – First Steps
Okay, the very first thing to do is make the decision to start teaching, don’t think about it, don’t procrastinate, just say to yourself, I’m going to do this and I’m going to get my first student and start teaching. Next, you need to answer these questions:
Where To Teach Piano and Guitar?
You have three options, you can teach at your home, you can go mobile and teach in the student’s home and you can teach in your local music shop. I’ve done all three but I prefer teaching in my local music shop and the mobile option which I do at the moment. Don’t be apprehensive about approaching the owners of music shops because they will benefit from your presence with increased sales from your students. You should also pay a percentage of your lessons fee to the music shop for use of musical instruments, electricity, heat etc. For example, I charge £15.00 per half hour lesson and pay £3.00 of that to the music shop. This is a tremendous benefit to you both, as I said above music shop owners make money from an empty space in their shop plus increased sales and you get all your students in one place with a choice of musical instruments to use, no bills to pay and you also save on petrol costs.
How To Find Piano And Guitar Students?
Again the music shop is a great source of potential students but I recommend finding your first student yourself through advertising. This will be a small classified ad in you local newspaper. Here an example of an ad that I used:
Piano and keyboard lessons for beginners. All ages welcome. Contact Mike for more details. TEL: 123456789
It wont cost much and I guarantee you will get lots of enquires and you only need one student to pay for your ad, but you’ll probably end up with a lot more. When you have a few students on your books, then you can approach the music shop and grow your student list from there.
What Piano and Guitar Music Teacher Resources You Need?
This is the part that frightens potential teachers because, yes, they can play but how do they communicate that knowledge to a complete beginner. I must admit when I first started, this did freak me out a bit but I was fortunate in that I could watch other teachers at work and copied their method and tried it out with one student and after that I never looked back and I’ve been teaching for over 30 years.
So, to answer the question, you need a how teach piano and how teach guitar teaching plan from legacy learning systems.
