I’m a full-time piano teacher, entrepreneur, and food lover. This is my personal blog. It is focused on “piano-teacher talk” with a little foodie vibe. My mission is to share inspiration on becoming a better piano teacher by promoting an organized and healthy lifestyle.
As a result, I write on organization, productivity, marketing, and, since I am an Evernote Community Leader, how to use Evernote as an Independent Music Teacher. On occasion, I write about stuff that doesn’t fit neatly into one of these categories.
I typically post once a week, not including my weekly Friday Finds which is chock-full of goodies for teachers to check out. I share a little of everything in the Friday posts whether it’s piano, food, or life-related. To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe via e-mail.
