In this episode of the Rhythm N’ Groove Podcast, we talk about fine-tuning our goals into clear, measurable, and realistic guidelines, making it easier for us to create strategies that will help us achieve our goals. We also talk about what we look for when we look for music schools, and we tell the story of how Rhythm N’ Groove came to be.
What to look for in a music school:
Environment – We love music schools that are cheerful and welcoming. They set the stage for a good working environment for the staff and teachers, and for the students and customers. A friendly environment builds good relationships, and good relationships build a great community of people who care about the school and the mission of the school.
Communication – Communication is the number one most important thing for any relationship to work. Teachers and students must be able to communicate with the school about their needs, and the school should be able to take the initiative to communicate with their teachers and students. The school acts as the bridge between the teachers and students, and helps to make both sides feel comfortable with each other initially. Communication in terms of reminders and memos about anything happening within the school is also important.
Maintenance – For the teachers and the students to be able to teach and learn well, the school should make sure that all musical equipment and instruments are well maintained and in good working order, in addition to keeping the venue and amenities clean and in good condition.
Management – The school manages the schedule of all their teachers and their respective students, they have to keep track of the payment schedule and accounts for each individual and make sure they are accurate and up to date. The school also has to have policies that protect the interests of not just the school itself, but the students and the teachers as well.
