11 Years in Business. How I did it.
I, the founder of Music Teacher LA, would like to thank our Los Angeles-based community for another year in business. We have just completed our 11th year providing music lessons and piano tuning services to local families and look forward in continuing to meeting your musical interests and needs.
11 years of dedicated work Monday through Sunday, 12-16 hours each day, went by forever saving your children’s laughter and satisfied feelings in my heart.
In the 1st part of my career, I have been teaching many young children and adults full-time, driving to up to 53 private students each week. In those years, even on very busy days when I commuted to 12 individual students and felt sometimes tired, I enjoyed my work and proudly showed my students’ recorded musical achievements, cards and drawings to my family.
In my 2nd part of the career, running my music lessons’ business with 30 part and full-time teachers on board, my work shifted from seeing smiley faces of my students to seeing financial documents, writing blogs, articles and press releases, training teachers and coming up with individual lesson plans for a number of students’ of Music Teacher LA’s instructors, “meeting” parents over the phone, promoting business, and building partnerships often with my toddler in tow.
I cannot imagine Music Teacher LA without my little son who has often been “working” with me. When he started talking, he frequently reminded me to stop working late at night by saying “No work. Sleep.”
By the age of 2, my child has been proudly announcing to his playmates that “Mama is working at Music Teacher LA dot com”.
At age 3.5 I started him in piano, giving in to his desire to learn to play the instrument. Now, I observe him placing his Paw Patrol figurines on the piano and explaining to them that the piece he’s going to play is very hard. Then, he puts his fingers down on the keys in the perfect curved position and plays smoothly and with no mistakes. I see him satisfied with the results and proudly looking up at the Paw Patrol cubs. Such moments inspire me to write educational and parenting articles in my blog and share my professional and personal experiences with you.
Encourage your children to practice and reward them for their efforts! Your kids will thank you in the future. In the meanwhile, we will continue working hard to bring the joy of music to your home. Thank you.
