I quit my job as a bookseller after teaching my first piano student in November 2001. Since then, I have taught piano, voice, organ, and guitar to school children (and a few adults) in my neighborhood through a music store. I also play piano for a Lutheran church.
In December 2006, my husband and I incorporated our business, and he developed the website. Now I have students pouring toward me. I have a waiting list, and my schedule is completely full! And it's the summertime (s-l-o-w time in the industry). We're going to have to hire a few teachers before autumn falls around.
I especially love that between the two of us, my husband and I work less than 40 hours per week. And our children are constantly under parental supervision.
