I LOVE infomercials. My latest “gotta have” is the Scrub Daddy Sponge… have you seen this thing!? Santa better bring me one. I’m one of those people who can’t help but get sucked into the hype.
But this ain’t hype.
Because the Duet Diet we’re about to prescribe for your studio is guaranteed to SHRINK your studio problems, TONE the minds of your piano students and INCREASE the size of your wallet.
All in just 30 days.
Who Needs the Duet Diet?
If you’re struggling with piano student retention, students who are losing motivation and students who just seem down-right bored… than the Duet Diet is for you.
If you have piano students with rhythm problems, uneven tempo, severe loneliness on the bench or chronic lack of fluidity… they need the Duet Diet.
How Can I Start?
The Duet Diet only works if it becomes a regular part of your piano lesson routines. Gone are the days when duets are reserved for special occasions, recitals, or competitions. No! The Duet Diet is designed to be a part of your piano student’s regular lesson routine. Here’s how it works:
1) Go on the hunt for some fantastic duet repertoire that is one level below where your student currently plays.
2) Assign the Primo or Secondo part as one of their regular repertoire selections every single week for home practice.
3) Set aside time during every single piano lesson to play these duets with your piano student. Then, pair students of the same level who have each completed the primo and secondo. Rehearse with them together in an extra lesson twice a month. Each student pays for just one of the two extra lessons.
Why Does it Work?
The Duet Diet is a no-fail way to increase the level of enjoyment of your piano students. Not only will they be making music with their peers, but they will also be strengthening those areas of their piano playing skills that need work. With the motivation to learn their part in order to play with their friends comes a lot of home practice. And with practice and strengthened skills comes a higher level of proficiency on the piano. And that’s just plain fun!
The Duet Diet works because it is simple – you’re hunting for supplementary music anyway… why not make it duet music?! The Duet Diet works because it is collaborative – you’re creating relationships within your studio among your clients. The Duet Diet works because it increases word-of-mouth advertising – clients can’t help but talk about the fantastic music their children are producing with their friends. The Duet Diet works because it is next to impossible to play a duet without having mastered the skills required of you in that piece – your students will want to practice!
But wait! There’s More! The Duet Diet works for you because you will be adding extra lessons to your schedule every single week and more lessons means more money! Pair just 8 of your students and you add the equivalent of 2 new students to your schedule… BUT without the extra work that comes with new students.
…. So, how’d I do as an informercial writer? Are you convinced? 🙂
