These are great insights! It took me years to achieve even the level of your first concerts- I started out with a whole lot of solo piano numbers. Not terribly interesting stuff. My studio is to the point now where we do similar things to your coffee ship jams and it certainly makes a difference!

I’d be curious to know how you organize your events, like how long they last, how you coordinate rehearsals, etc. Logistics are the hardest part!

Thanks. this have given me some food for thought about our choir and instrumental concerts. Looking forward to the next one. Is it OK to forward the link to the videos to a friend who does most of our planning?

Great video, Rob! I think showing us the before and after videos really help us see the big differences this course will bring to the table. Excited to see the next video!

This is great info for music teachers. It struck me when you said you discovered the key was about entertaining the audience. The reason I’ve not struggled with concerts is because I have a background in theatre. As instrument teachers, we tend to focus more on technique and each individual number rather than putting a show together. It seems your course will provide instrument teachers with essential information to produce wonderful shows that will create lasting memories for the students and audience, while maintaining a high bar for technique.

HI Rob – thanks for sharing. I have been doing student showcases now for several years and I agree with you that they really help motivate the students that participate! I think they are a great boost to my business as well. I have not gone so far as to coordinate with other teachers yet or involve family or other teachers in a “band”. I will have to think about that concept. I have had pretty good success with solo or ensembles within my student groups so far. Anyway, thank you for the ideas..

Thanks for making these videos! I would love to know how you would suggest applying these ideas to classical lessons? I’m a private flute teacher. Do you have any ideas of how to incorporate the same entertainment value for the audience into classical music?
