Adult Students - Lessons While Working Full-Time
February 26, 2015
Two weeks ago we were introduced to Theresa, one of our adult students. She is currently a work-from-home mom taking lessons with Julian.
When I first started with Talent CAN Be Taught, I was working full-time in Liberty Village (Exhibition Station on the GO Train). I found it was difficult to find time to practise as well as attend lessons sometimes.
One of the great things I found about Talent CAN Be Taught, is if I knew I was going to have a long work week I could cancel in advance and schedule a make-up lesson, meaning I didn’t lose any lesson time. This was an amazing point for me because it meant if I had to work long, I wasn’t losing money. I worked really hard to work around my piano times, but my teachers worked with me to help make my efforts as effective as possible.
Also, after a long day of work, you don’t want to be out too long. Another great thing I found was that my lessons were nearly always on-time. It sounds like a silly thing, but it really makes a big difference when you have been gone from home all day, and you have to be up early the next day.
TCBT has fantastic teachers who know how to speak to adults and work with them to achieve their goals.
