Abraham Levitan didn’t come from a traditional, conservatory background. So, when he started teaching he included all genres of music. He custom arranged pop tunes for his students and encouraged them to play the music that they enjoyed listening to.
Perhaps that’s why he was so popular. His teaching style was friendly and accessible and his studio quickly grew. Soon he had a sizeable waiting list and started looking into hiring teachers.
But how did he find the right teachers?
How do you find teachers for a travelling music school that align with your ideas and philosophy of teaching? How do you make sure teachers stick with you for the long term?
Find out all about Abraham’s approach to hiring, scheduling, and teaching in today’s podcast. Maybe it will even inspire you to start a travelling music school too.

There are a lot of podcasts you could be tuning into today, and I’m grateful that you’ve chosen mine.
Being a full-time teacher myself, I know how busy teachers are and how much time, effort and passion we put into our students. Sometimes, the last thing we want to do in our time off is listen to more piano teaching stuff! So, well done for using this time for self-improvement.
Whether you’re at the gym, on the bike or in the car, I know that you and your students will get lots out of what you learn in the long run. Just make sure you try out some of the ideas before they get lost in the business of your next lessons.
