BEST IDEAS Webinars have launched! REPLAY of Webinar 1 here + show notes

This past Tuesday, Oct. 17, 10AM Central, we kicked off a NEW #pianotipsin10 live broadcast series entitled “BEST IDEAS” to bring like-minded piano teachers together in the spirit of “community.” With all the tragedy that’s been happening around us, I believe there is a need for us to gather and support each other as independent teachers, share ideas, partner, etc. in a effort to be successful in our ability to change lives for the better.

JOIN US on TUESDAYS at 10AM Central for a LIVE BROADCAST via webinar where teachers share studio ideas, strategies or trade secrets.  FACE to FACE with you! 

CAN’T MAKE IT at that time? Everyone who registers for a TUES. webinar will automatically receive the REPLAY link afterwards.
