Getting my work done at the library as a full-time teacher

The library is my all-time favorite place to work. I think it’s my favorite because it’s quiet and I feel more motivated to get my work done. I am currently in the process of recording for my piano course. I’ve been teaching for more than six years currently and I want to expand my teaching studio. I also have been recording myself playing several piano pieces. I absolutely love it. My teaching website is currently in the process and I can’t wait to start this next chapter in my teaching career. The reason why I mention that I am recording my course is because I am planning on recording much of it in the library. I tested out the possibility of recording it in the library and it has been a success. I just finished recording my first set of lessons.

The next reason why I love getting my work done at the library is because the study room that I rent is only open for two hours. The two hour time limit is a good reminder to remained focus on my work. I am easily distracted, so this is a huge benefit for me. I also think that the two hour limit is great for recording. It’s difficult to record for long periods of time. Two hours feels like just enough for a day of work.

I also work at my office. When I go there to work, there is free coffee/tea/water. I really enjoy working there also. It’s pretty loud there so I am not able to record there. I’ve seen my colleagues feel comfortable to have their phone conversations, but I don’t feel comfortable doing that yet. I still feel shy when i’m recording my lessons at the library. The rooms at the library are isolated, so I don’t know why I still feel nervous. Overall, working at the office versus working at the library are different experiences. It depends on what type of work I am trying to get done that day. For example, I was working at the office yesterday. Most of my work was answering work messages and printing out sheet music. The type of work I was doing fit the work environment that I was in. Today, I really wanted to get some recording done so the library was perfect for what I needed.

Let me know what type of work environment that you like working in!

  1. The library really does sound like an amazing place to work indeed. Before the pandemic, I enjoyed working at the Starbucks just outside my house, because it gives me enough stimulation for extra ideas, but it’s also quiet enough that I can think.
