Hello all

What do you do for group piano class? How do you charge for it? How often do you have group class? Till what level? Do parents attend? How do you get parents on board?

Thanks so much

Honestly, I always struggle with figuring out group class. Pre- Covid, we would meet in my studio once a month and play games, discuss the composer listed in the issue of Piano Explorer, and they would play for each other. I charge a group class fee at the beginning of each semester, but only a few families actually attend. Now that I am going to be teaching online through the fall semester, I am not sure how to schedule it. I would love to hear what other piano teachers are doing!

Hello, if you send me your email address I will be happy to invite you to the google Classroom I created. Several teachers posted their ideas and while nothing much new happened since mid-aril there, you still might find some helpful hints.

Thank you!
