A Day in my Life: Piano Teacher Edition

Today is Monday and it’s kind of difficult to say whether or not I’m exactly happy for it to be Monday. However, this morning I started out by sleeping in. That’s one of the perks of working for yourself and making your own schedule. You get to plan out the day however you want.

I have quite a few things I have to do today:

1. Teach two lessons: 12:00 pm-12:40 pm and 5 pm-6 pm

2. Interview a new student at 2 pm- 2:15 pm

3. Pick up my packages in the evening

You must be thinking, “wow that doesn’t sound like a lot at all.” And you’re right. It’s not. I actually had to reschedule one of the lessons I had for today to tomorrow and I scheduled in a new lesson for a new student. Being a teacher, I have to manage my schedule really well. So it’s not like I don’t do a lot during the day because I get paid quite a lot for the times when I am teaching. Therefore, I don’t have to work a lot of hours each day. And hence, I can spend more time blogging and cuddling with my puppy Zoe.

The lesson at 5 pm is a traveling one. A piano teacher has two options, they could either teach at their studio and have students come to them or they can travel to students’ homes. It’s up to the teacher. For me, I combine both options. I find that some parents want to travel to my location for lessons and some don’t feel like driving. Around 4:20, I have to start making the trip to my student’s home and I get back home around 5:30. And then I’ll be done for the day.

Is it nice to only have to work for barely 2 hours and still make lots? Yes it is 🙂 And if you have any questions for me, please leave it in the comments below. Let me know if you like this and I’ll share more!
