I've answered yes to all of those questions over my 25+ years of teaching. The very first summer camp I held was called Piano Olympics. I had few resources and I made things up as I went along. And although I still enjoy creating fresh ideas, in all honesty, I'm ready to steal some ideas from others. That's why I'm so interested in Group Lessons 101 produced by Tracy Selle with her co-host Sara Campbell.
Both Tracy and Sara have interesting situations. Tracy just moved to a new city where she is re-establishing herself as a piano teacher and Sara lives in a small community with a limited population. Both are in the trenches and find imaginative ways to make their studios blossom. This makes their content even more heartfelt and authentic and ultimately more helpful to all of us fellow teachers in the trenches!
Their Group Lessons 101 course doesn't just feature the two of them. You'll hear 7 successful teachers discuss
- How to Run Your FIRST Group Lesson or Camp.
- How to Guarantee a Great Student Turnout.
- Using Technology in Group Lessons.
- Group Activities that will WOW your Students.
- Teaching Multi-Age Group Lessons.
- How to Design your Own Camps.
- How to Organize Group Lessons Without Feeling Overwhelmed.
What's really cool? Marie Lee, who was featured in a past 88pianokeys post, is one of the teachers in the workshop. I can't wait to hear about how she has moved her studio into a new space and is working hard to attract more students with creative options.
Ready now? The content of this course will long outlast any decent pair of shoes around the same price. Use this coupon code for 10% off until the end of March.

Tracy and Sara offered a free webinar to launch their registration. The content in this webinar alone was packed with information.
