Teaching with A to G

Stress free scheduling

image1

We manage your schedule together!

This means that schedules are created based first and foremost on instructor's desired schedules.

We don't tell you where to go and when, we ask you if you'd like to go here and would you like to go there!  Best yet, we take on full responsibility of relaying scheduling with the customers, parents & students.

WORK WITH THE BEST

Our students and their families truly are the fuel that drives all of us teachers!  


The families we work for truly are the best!

 The parents and guardians of our child lessons are the best of the best of caregivers.  They understand the value of music education (that goes without saying).  Best of all they make you feel like part of the family!  

KEEP YOUR FREEDOM

We understand the personal nature of teaching, and teaching music especially.

So you keep your freedom as an inspiration and role model!   We will help you provide the best service you possibly can!



FEE PROTECTION

We all know that it can be pretty intimidating trying to get the most for your hard work as a piano teacher.  We can help you get the pay you deserve for your hard work!  

Our payments to our instructors never decrease and only increase!   Payments are decided based on contract and may fluctuate based on your skill level, customer feedback, work-load and other factors.  Last time we checked, we pay higher than our largest competitor ;)

EMPHASIS ON PRIMARY CORE CONCEPTS

Primary core concepts

We at A to G - with a student body of primarily young and early beginners - put a great amount of emphasis on researching curricula and teaching strategies that target the primary core concepts in music and stand by the motto- you can't build a house on a poor foundation.  It is with this disciplined perspective that we make sure that the simple things are not overlooked.  We provide instructors with access to all of the tools one needs to easily and effectively assist students with and not limited to these primary core concepts:

- note identification

- rhythm and counting 

- musical notation 

- musical terms

- chord identification
