Although most teachers carry out their piano training in a private teaching studio, usually located in the teacher's home, more and more teachers are starting to teach in student's homes. Although student home teaching was the paradigm in the past, this practice has started to grow again. In these days of recession and limited time for lessons, teaching in the home makes sense for a lot of people.

Of course, one's student must have a decent piano (or -- gasp! -- keyboard) in the home on which to learn, but what are the challenges that the traveling teacher faces? Must such a teacher charge more to make up for time traveling? Are there security issues? Does this constitute an opportunity for teachers? I don't think we've ever talked about this on the Forums, so the discussion should be both interesting and informative. :)
