I am 18 years old going to a music college majoring in piano performance. I am not too satisfied with the school I am at, and have been considering some options. I am thinking about taking next semester off to try out teaching a private studio. I have 1 student now due to having no time. Below is a link to an old resume of mine from a competition I won.

http://www.andrewdegrado.org/2003_comp5/kyle_ehram5.htm

Any insight on how much to charge per hour/half hour, and how many students I can fit into my virtually "free" week would be great!

Thanks!

Kyle

Hi KyleE,

Your resume is quite impressive! Congratulations on all your accomplishments!

Before you begin to teach, you may want to consider a few things (I've copied this from a previous post I wrote):

You may be a gifted and talented performer, but teaching requires a completely different skill set. I know several wonderful performers who don't communicate very well. Many times these teachers don't know what is age appropriate for children and cause more damage than good.

With that said, I'm not suggesting that you couldn't evolve into a wonderful teacher. I would suggest that if this is an interest to you, take a pedagogy class and observe as many teachers as you can. Ask questions to other teachers in your area as well as in places like this.

A child's first piano instructor will last with them for a lifetime. It is such an honor to be a part of a child's musical journey! All teachers should go into teaching with as many tools (education, materials, enthusiasm) as possible for all involved.

Charlene
