Optimizing Your Music Teacher Website on Search Engines

Lately, I have been receiving some music teacher inquiries on how to increase the number of their students. Some of them are asking for effective ways to advertise or market their music studios.

Although there are many ways to increase the popularity of a music teaching school, I think the best way is to develop a website and start optimizing it on search engines. This may sound so difficult but I have known some music teachers who have been very successful because of their well-managed website.

In creating a music teacher website, you may start using free blog portals like wordpress.com, weebly.com, webs.com or even blogger.com. Yet, it is still advisable to have your own website domain if you can afford it. It is also necessary to add some unique and relevant contents to gain trust from your readers.

After setting up your music teacher website, you may hire an SEO professional or company to initiate link building and social networking for your site. Again, this may be expensive but sure this can also be a good investment. I have been employing a search engine optimization expert for more than 3 years now and I’m glad to say that my music school business is constantly growing because of my website.

As a music teacher, I have limited knowledge and skills about computers and the internet. However, this never prevented me from utilizing technology and reaching out to more possible students. I always believe that it’s not wrong to seek help and professional assistance that’s why I hired a web designer and an SEO.

Music teaching is indeed an exciting and fulfilling profession. Although there are instances and experiences that may cause us problems and difficulties, being able to resolve these can make us more effective music educators and even make us improve ourselves.

Teaching music to students with different behaviors, capabilities, age and other personal characteristics can be difficult to handle. There are even times when we have students who are too demanding to learn music but they do not have such discipline to study their pieces. However and because of our love and passion for music, we always tend to cope up with these types of students and still perform our job professionally.

We all have various experiences and techniques in teaching music. We differ in solving different problems. Thus, we are asking you to share these experiences with other music teachers. Share your effective teaching methods or even reviews of gadgets and software that you are using in your music class. With your willingness to share these things, we hope that more music teachers can become better professionals.

Write your pieces and send them to us. Our email address is musicteacher541@gmail.com

We will gladly post it on this website and let other music teachers learn about your story.

What is the Right Age to Begin Guitar Lessons?

November 2, 2011 at 12:03 pm | Posted in music education, Music Teaching Tips | 3 Comments
Tags: , ,

What is the right age to begin guitar lessons? This is a question that is frequently asked by many parents who have young children who are five to eight years old. Many times they have taken them to a music store for lessons and were told that the child is too young to start and they should be ten to twelve years old.

However my answer is start as soon as they’re interested, but you have to have realistic expectations. For example a child who is five years old says “I want to play the guitar”. Most of the time they have no preference as to what style of music, rock, country, jazz etc… to them it’s just “I want to play the guitar”. On the other hand the parent, who can’t really remember what its like to be five, may be thinking “how could they possibly ever play like ________” (fill in the blank with your favorite artist) or that their fingers are too small or any number of reasons that would convince them that maybe they should wait till they’re older. So what is important here is to focus on the child’s interest not the multitude of limiting factors that an adult can postulate.

When a teacher says a child is too young to start it’s due to the fact that they do not know how to teach a child or they’re not willing to put out the effort that it takes to teach a young child. I see it this way, a child eats the same food as an adult but its cut in smaller pieces. The child has to learn the same way but it has to be broken down in very small attainable bits of information that can be easily acquired intellectually as well as physically.

A rule of thumb that I like to use is that you have one minute of attention span for each year of the child’s age, some have more some have less. So if I have a five year old for a half hour lesson I change the focus every five minutes, or when I see that the attention is drifting. I also like to make the lessons fun by joking around and relating to them on their level. I leave room for fidgetiness and don’t make repetitive harsh demands to sit still, sit up straight, pay attention etc… This would only make the experience miserable.

I also think it’s good for the parent/s to sit in on the lesson so they can understand the learning process. The main purpose of starting early is to develop the basic skills needed to play the guitar, not necessarily playing songs like an accomplished musician. The goal here would be to keep the child’s interest while developing the coordination between the right and the left hand and the individual use of fingers so eventually they will be able to produce a good tone.

The first thing may be to get them to pick just one string without hitting any others while getting them familiar with the names of the strings, then eventually how to place one finger on a fret and play a note on one string. Don’t expect that the notes will sound good, most likely you’ll hear a lot of doinks and buzzes and this is normal, remember the goal is keep the interest and develop the basic skills and at the same time you will be developing their attention span as well as their discipline.

What about practice time? Remember the rule of attention span, one minute for each year of their age, don’t get hung up on the hard line rule that they should practice at least a half hour a day. It would be better to take full advantage of whatever attention span the child has and formulate daily practice based on that amount of time. For example a five year old with the average attention span of five minutes can practice five minutes a day. A plan like this will achieve very important results as far as developing basic skills and discipline at an early age and as time goes on increase the amount of practice time as the attention span increases.

A parent can make practice a fun time by asking them to play for them rather than demanding that they practice. Ask questions about what they learned during the lesson. Sometimes they don’t remember anything but it makes them think and focus their attention. They should always keep a positive attitude and compliment their effort.

I use the example of a five year old but that’s not to say that a child can’t learn or at least develop the interest at even an earlier age. My oldest daughter started learning when she was two years old. I bought a cheap, junkie beat up guitar for five bucks and just left it sit around in reach. One day she just sat it on her lap and began strumming on the open strings. From there I showed her how to pick one string, then one note and so on, but nothing heavy or formal. It was just a minute or two here and there along with cheering her on. However it wasn’t until she was about six or seven when we began a more structured lesson time, she started to learn how to read music and had some regular practice time.

Fun Apps to Teach Music With

October 8, 2011 at 4:40 am | Posted in Music Teaching Tips | 3 Comments

In the 21st century, mobile communication and cloud computing are the norm for many young people. To increase interaction and student buy-in, music teachers have begun incorporating applications or “apps” for mobile devices into their lesson plans. There is a vast array of resources available, to meet almost any teaching need, even if they are not teaching in online schools. Almost all apps are specific to a particular platform such as Android or Apple. This article will discuss free apps; many of them are “lite” versions of paid apps. There are hundreds of apps available, but this is a sampling of the most useful ones for education.

For Pianists

There are so many great piano apps for instructors to choose from. Most piano smartpone apps are virtual keyboards. For Android, there are such titles as xPiano and PianoPro. xPiano has only a 4-octave keyboard, but can simulate 12 additional instruments. Additionally, the width of the keys can be adjusted. On the other hand there is PianoPro, which has a full-size keyboard which can be displayed in one row or in two rows. For iPhone there is PlayItYourself, a simplified version of the paid app. This game-like app shows both the score and upcoming notes, which are highlighted on the keyboard display. There is also Virtuoso Piano Free, a simplified version of a paid app, which has a 6-octave keyboard with color-coded key labels.

For Guitarists

Guitarists have a wide range of apps to search, and most are very useful for visualization techniques. For guitarists there are chord tab reference apps–dozens! For Android try Guitar TabApp, it searches for tablatures online, by band, and can save, add, or edit tabs. On the iPhone you can get Chords, which shows the tablatures for 28 different chord types.

For Drummers

Since drumming can be really tough to get without both audio and physical repetition, using apps for drummers can be really helpful. Virtual drums include G-Stomper for Android and DigiDrummer Lite or BeatBox Free for iPhone. All of these are demo versions of paid apps; they can perform live beats, but G-Stomper and BeatBox Free can unfortunately only save one pattern. DigiDrummer Lite offers 8 drum kits and can save multiple patterns.

Practice Aids: Virtual Metronomes and Tuners

In this category, Android has more app offerings for free than iPhone does. There is Mobile Metronome, which can beat from 2 to 20 beats per measure and from 10 to 230 beats per minute. Beats can also be subdivided and compounded. There is also DaTuner, a chromatic tuner that plays the desired note for tuning any string instrument. Practice Makes Perfect combines a metronome with a really useful sectionizer that can play parts of pieces. This dimension seems the most helpful for students who are trying to get the bigger picture, or who are practicing harmony.

Finally Android offers a guitar scale reference for help tuning. The user can select any scale and the app will show the fingering. There are also metronome apps and chord progression that allow students and teachers to find various chord progressions through interaction, such as Chord Bot for the Android.

Recording

There are many free “pocket music studio” apps for Android devices, but sadly none for iPhones. Uloops Studio Lite builds tracks as a sequence of loops and mixes synths, drums, recordings and modulators. Similarly, Tape Machine Lite Recorder offered by Android is a high-quality sound recorder and editor with a powerful waveform display and looped playback. Using recording devices from a student’s phone like this can let them take their recorded music home, so they can hear themselves and better understand what they need to work on for their next lesson.

Theory and Ear Training

For theory and ear training there are available apps as well, which can be offer more interactive approaches to theory than workbooks for students. There is KidMusicalToys, which contains five separate games for following rhythms and identifying sounds of various instruments, and is often used for young children. Learn Music Notes shows the notes on a staff and the player touches the key to identify it. It give auditory and visual feedback for correct or incorrect answers. Music Tutor SightReadLite shows random notes on a staff and the player must identify them. This is a timed game which keeps track of previous scores to show progress. Finally, Perfect Ear offers eight different types of exercises for different instruments for ear training, and can be a useful addition to other theory practice.

New technologies are allowing music to be introduced to a new generation in formats that young people can understand and enjoy. Music teachers can have a lot of fun exploring the interactive mobile options available and coming up with new ways to engage their students.

What Makes a Great Music Teacher

January 20, 2011 at 1:54 pm | Posted in Music Teacher Profession, Music Teaching Tips, My Experinces | 6 Comments

What makes a great music teacher? Someone with years of expert training and dedication? Someone who knows all the answers to music students’ questions?  Someone with a track record of incredible students?

It would be easy to say yes. Music teachers like that are very impressive. And certainly training and dedication are essential. But over the years I’ve realized that there are other qualities even more important than these.

I had a friend who majored in Music and French at University who ended up teaching German, her second foreign language, in a high school. One day, in the midst of a German lesson, she taught her students a German word that she later discovered did not exist. Mortified, she was hoping that her students would forget it along with all the other vocabulary they frequently forgot, but no such luck. The students remembered and continue to use this invented German word, and she did not have the heart or the courage to tell them the truth.

This story made a great impression on me when I heard it, and I determined at that moment that I would never pretend to know all the answers. As a child, I had thought my teachers had all the answers. Now as an adult, I know they did not. And so if a student asks me a question and I don’t know the answer, I tell them truthfully that I will find out for them and let them know. They don’t seem to have a problem with that.

What about having impressive students? Isn’t that an important yardstick by which to measure a teacher? My take on this is that it’s more important to have students who love what they do, and to have a good relationship with them. Worrying about whether they are excelling can get in the way of these other more important aspects.

On that note, are you aware of what your beliefs are about your students and about your teaching? If your students don’t excel, are you taking it personally, blaming your own teaching, or, conversely, blaming your students for being lazy or unmotivated? If you are driven by the need for recognition, it is easy to fall into this trap. Notice what drives you, and whether it is working for you. I decided a long time ago, when I was teaching some students with some personal challenges, that it was more important to give them love and attention, than for them to succeed at the piano. I’ve noticed that this works much better for me as a general rule.   If they are talented, it certainly can be more stimulating to teach them, and I love to hear the results, but I have developed some really close relationships with more typical students that were far more satisfying.

Another important issue is boundaries. Be clear about what you are able to offer.  What has worked best for me is to be friendly and warm, but not to try to be a best friend. To be clear about starting and ending times, fees, cancellations, and about the structure of the lesson. To be focused and not overly chatty. To give the students space to make discoveries, and to be objective as far as possible.

The bottom line here is about awareness. When you are teaching, are you aware of your breathing? Is your body relaxed? What thoughts do you have in your mind? How are you feeling? Are you present with the student? Do you feel in balance? Are you taking care of yourself? Are you still learning and growing as a musician and a person every day? Are you open to having fun? Are you genuinely enthusiastic? Are you even willing to look silly if it will help the student understand a certain principle or connect to a certain piece of music?

One of my advanced students, a teenage boy of 17, was learning a contemporary piano piece written for dancers. He was finding it difficult to connect to the piece, and I suddenly had the idea that maybe it would help him if I moved around the room and danced to it myself. I remember blushing as I had the idea. Although I often danced to music, I was in no way a professional, and I was afraid of embarrassing myself. But here we were in a large empty studio, and it just seemed like the right thing to do. I suggested it to my student, and he was very receptive. So I got up and started moving and dancing to the music. And an amazing thing happened. As he accompanied my movements, and I expressed physically and emotionally what I was hearing, the piece transformed. And neither he nor I have ever forgotten the experience.
