5 Day Piano Pivot
Day 4: Your Music
Most teachers are drowning in books and sheet music. But how much of it are you actually using? Today we want you to do a serious audit so you can free up space for more of what matters.
Please note: These videos were originally recorded in December 2017. The content is still totally relevant, just replace our references to 2017 with the current year in your head as you're watching.
Do you have any music that you've never, ever used? Let us know how your music audit goes in the Vibrant Music Studio Teachers group on Facebook here.
