Music Teacher Tip #16: Putting Together the "Puzzle" of Lesson Schedules


If you have ever put together a fall schedule, then you know what I’m talking about when I say it’s like putting together a puzzle. Student, A needs to switch over to Wednesdays at 4 pm while student B needs to move up an hour, then let’s not forget students C, F, G, L, M, N, O, P…! It can get pretty crazy putting together the puzzle of lesson schedules.

Then on top of that craziness is trying to see when families are available on which day and time. They may tell you that they are available on Tuesday at 4 pm but they left out the fact that they can also come on Wednesday at 5 pm, and Thursday at 3:30 pm. That information could have helped you with your puzzle!


Watch this teacher tip to hear what I do to get ALL the day and times families are available, but not only that, times that may work even if it’s not ideal and then…, just to be totally clear, the times they are absolutely unavailable.
