Ideally, I'd love to get a group of students together (max. 4) that can grow and learn together as they learn the beginner elements of piano playing. And to do it in a format that's a little longer than normal beginner lessons with some fun group activities thrown in. I'll also be adding monthly private check-in lessons with each of my group members, just to make sure they're on track and getting everything they need. So a little of my past meets a little of my present.
Now, I already offer studio classes for all my students to play for one another so this is a totally different thing. Studio class time is a chance for my students to perform for others and learn how to comment helpfully and appropriately on other's work. Group lessons gets more into the nitty gritty of piano basics and we'll be learning pieces, doing theory, singing and doing rhythmic exercises as we move back and forth between the piano and our circle time.
Can't wait to switch things up! Change is good!
