In this episode, Jessica Dutton and I have a discussion about how it's ok to shift from teaching classroom music to something else like private lessons, owning your own studio, or even starting your own business online or in person.
Once you get your music education degree, this doesn't mean you're required to teach elementary music (or secondary) for the rest of your life. If you do, than great! High quality music teachers are DEFINITELY needed in the schools. That's the exact reason I started this podcast... to help give you tips and strategies to teach music. But, I also like to talk in the podcast about how as a musician and teacher, you'll have multiple passions, and how it's ok to follow those and shift a little bit sometimes.
Jessica Dutton is a former public school music teacher turned private teacher and music studio owner/manager. She's also a writer, speaker, business coach, and serial entrepreneur. She juggles these pursuits with her Spanish teacher hubby while raising three kids under five. She specializes in equipping music teachers with the encouragement, direction, and practical tools they need to build a successful business that fits their life and goals.
I'd love for you to leave a rating and a review of the podcast on I-tunes, be sure to share the podcast with any music teacher friends who would find it helpful and be sure to tag me on Instagram or Facebook.
