Even if families are given a detailed calendar of the piano schedule for the year, students still ask questions like, “When is the recital,” or “When does the piece have to be memorized.” After I started giving students their own calendar to put in the clear pocket of their binder, I would just say, “Let’s look at your calendar!” I put it right on the front of their binder. On the back was a key signature chart for older students and a grand staff chart for beginners. If you don’t use binders, glue or tape it to their assignment notebook. Don’t forget to give a copy to parents.
The middle of the calendar is where you type your schedule. A handy Word template is included to make it easier.
You can add the days the studio opens and closes, recitals, holidays, festivals, theory exams, group lessons and most importantly the date a piece needs to be memorized. This calendar will help you plan out your entire year.
Along with the academic calendar that starts in August, there is an optional Word template for you to use to type in your studio schedule. Also Included is an illustrated instruction sheet on how to use the Word template. If you don’t have Word there are instructions for the margin settings when you use another word processing program.
I got this idea from a teaching colleague who told me it was the very best calendar for piano studios, and she was right! If you’ve never used this calendar format before, give it a try!
This year the calendar is a freebie to support all the music teachers who have been though so much recently. Thank you for all you do to promote music education.
