It can be easy to feel like what we do in our studio has nothing to do with the community of teachers around us. After all, they aren’t at our lessons each week with our students. They aren’t making decisions that effect whether our clients continue each year.
But, I would disagree with this sentiment. I think that what we do in our studios each year can have a big impact on our community of teachers.
Having a studio recital is a lot of work. And, it’s completely worth it. But, you may be thinking, “The recital is over … now what?” Maybe you are feeling burnt out or “burnt out adjacent” (the feeling of don’t-add-anything-more-because-I-am-JUST-barely-able-to-get-everything-done). I was definitely feeling burnt out adjacent in the last few months. And, our studio…
When I first started my business, I couldn’t help but wonder “Does design have to be complicated?” I knew that I needed to have good looking materials for prospective clients. But, I also knew that I was spending way to much time on materials that looked like an elementary school child created them. Sigh.

With registration starting on Monday, I have spent the last few weeks ensuring that everything is ready to go & as easy as possible for my clients. Part of this is creating family folders in Google Drive. For each family, I add documents throughout the year so parents can access them & get an overview of what they child(ren) are doing in piano lessons.
This is a how-to video on how create folders & add documents to Google Drive.
When you have a lot of apps on your iPad, organizing them is essential for finding apps efficiently during lesson & keeping students focused during lab time. While you could just search the iPad for the app you are looking for, there is a much easier way! In this how-to video, I will show you…
This last week, it was all about getting ready for fall registration in my studio. While the weather outside may not say Spring, the process of looking at my registration packet feels like a time of renewal. A chance to start fresh. When I first started my business, I had read the stories of frustrated…
While I have found a way to balance running my boutique studio, home life and personal development (at least most days), it wasn’t always like this. Then, one year I realized something had to change. Are you registration ready?
Whether it’s avoiding Murphy’s Law, wireless connections that aren’t always great, or just having a backup plan in place, a few simple tools can make your TV a great screen to show what is on your iPad!
This is a time of year that many of us have made New Year’s Resolutions and are struggling to keep up with them. I know this because I have been that person in the past more times than I care to admit.
This week, I’ll be letting you know how my students and I are settling into a routine again, but with a mind on how we can reach our goals in the next few months!
As I head into the new year, I have been looking back. Setting goals is a wonderful thing, but unless we have a clear vision they just become yet another thing on the to-do list.
