I've been debating with myself for a couple months whether or not I want to teach group horn lessons to middle school kids again next fall. Well aware of the positives and negatives, as well as a sense of commitment and responsibility, I hadn't yet made the decision to quit.
So this morning, prompted by Steve's blog entry, I asked, "Is it me?"
The answer is: No. At this stage, I am more effective one-on-one, and I enjoy teaching individual lessons more than group sessions. I realized that I could add 3-4 more private students if I dropped the group lessons, and not only would the hours per week be similar, but I'd make more money and have more control over my schedule. Now that I look at it this way, it's a no-brainer!
