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.
This is a time of year when many families have more than ever on their plates. Not only are all the regular extra-curricular events going on, but there are a multitude of additional activities families are expected to attend. One client put it perfectly. “We have everything scheduled and balanced just right. Then, December comes along & all the changes wreak havoc on the delicate balance we had going.” December is the month we seem to sprint to vacation.

I LOVE reading blogs and follow quite a few so that not a day goes by in which I am not exposed to a new idea or way of doing something. It keep me excited about my chosen profession … teaching music!

There are several really great features with the new iOS that I am looking forward to delving into more & will help my productivity both in lessons and during planning. This is your list of the top iOS 11 features for music educators!
The new IKEA catalogue came several weeks ago. While we don’t NEED new furniture right now, I like looking at how they set up the rooms for ideas of what we can do with our home. But, this time it was different.
What if we could drastically change the reading behaviour of our clients with a shift in perspective for our studio-client communications?
One of my biggest successes from last year was the addition of a travel music lab. My students who were in lab had a lot of fun & learnt so much at the same time.
Over the summer, I like to make a list of tasks that I want to accomplish before the rush of a new school year starts. While I like to relax as much as the next person, there is something about extended periods of doing nothing that just doesn’t work for me.
Rather than making a big list (like I usually do), this year I thought I would focus on big-picture goals or ideas that I could easily get into … once the euphoria of lazing on the deck wears off.
Here are the resources that will help me reach those big picture goals!
