Today, I want to share an affirmation that is one of the strongest aspects of my own teaching philosophy. Say this with me: "I adapt my teaching to meet the unique needs and pace of each individual student."

As piano teachers, we understand that each student brings their own set of challenges, strengths, and pace of learning. Our job isn't to create a one-size-fits-all curriculum but to adapt our teaching strategies to fit each student's needs at any given moment during any lesson.

This approach helps nurture a sense of ownership and individuality in our students' learning journeys. It speaks to our commitment to personalized education, to acknowledging that every student learns in their own way and at their own speed.

This affirmation is a daily reminder that our role is to adapt and evolve for our students, meeting them where they are and helping them reach their unique potential.

How do you adapt your teaching to meet your students' needs? I'd love to hear your strategies and experiences.

And if you're not feeling confident in your adaptability, repeat this affirmation to yourself each day, believe it as you say it, and before you know it, you'll be on your way to being a more flexible and adaptable piano teacher!

Do you have piano students who sit WAY too close to the piano? Have you tried everything you can think of to get them to scoot back a little?

This video is just for you - a simple "test" for students to help them be sure they're sitting the proper distance away from the piano.

Want to know the secret to making your students' audio for online piano lessons sound amazing, even if you use Zoom?

1. Have your students use a USB mic such as the Fifine K670 (what my online students use) or a Blue Yeti (what I use) 🎀
2. Set up a small sound system in your studio and run your computer's audio through the external speakers. You can see my receiver and Bose speakers in the photo πŸ”ˆ

Doing these two things will make a HUGE difference in your online students' audio, which is a game-changer for using Zoom for online piano lessons!

You may have to use part of a lesson to help your students get their audio settings dialed in, and to help set up their USB mic in the best location to give you the best audio, but I promise it's totally worth it!
