While the majority of teachers do so privately, we have not really talked about the challenges of teaching class piano. This is usually a far different situation than teaching privately. It probably resembles group piano more than typical private teaching, although the class teacher must also cope with rigid time limits and the "rigamarole" that we associate with working in the schools. If you are a class teacher or have been, what are the special problems that you face? What help would you like to have? How do your students compare with private students? Do you have any "tips" for others who teach class piano?
