Hi Joshua, this is a great idea – I am always in support of teachers connecting with each other. I will talk with a few teachers I know in the Somerset area to point them in your direction. Would you be interested in doing anything online via Skype etc. to network with music teachers further afield? 🙂
Hello to all! Welcome to the Music Teachers’ forum, a space to share support, network and have fun with other music teachers located across the UK and beyond.
Somerset music tutor network – Guitar, Vocal and GCSE/A Level Music Tutors (All Teachers)
Hello Somerset based private music tutors!
I am interested in setting up / joining a network of private teachers in Somerset to share best practice, resources, concerts, workshops, tea, cake and chats.
This can be a very isolating industry – I know from my experience as a Head of Music in a Grammar school in Kent (where I was the only teacher in the department) that without setting up networks, and talking to other teachers, you can come across walls and start to doubt whether your ideas are good enough (when usually they are).
I have just recently moved back from Kent to Somerset (where I grew up) and am just starting to set up a new private teaching roster, but over the next year I want to put down routes – get to meet up with and collaborate with as many other music teachers in the area as possible and hopefully establish a network of teachers in the area.
If you want to get to know more about me and my teaching, please visit my website at: http://www.jhorseymusictuition.co.uk
Please use the links on my website to see some of my other profiles on directories and the [email protected] If anybody knows of any other local directories that they use – which seem to work well for them, please do let me know!
Thanks – I look forward to possibly meeting with some of you soon!
