TTTV037: Inspire your Teaching: Inside my Inner Circle with Marie Lee

inspire teaching inner circle marie lee

The Inner Circle is up and running, and today we’re taking a look inside through the eyes of Marie Lee. Marie is great at getting things done, one step at a time. She doesn’t let herself get overwhelmed by all the new ideas she reads about, but just picks one goal to accomplish and gets started.

Marie believes in creative piano teaching that leads to confident and well-rounded students. She doesn’t want to teach concert pianists, and she’s upfront with parents about this. She wants to create pianists that can enjoy making music in diverse and modern contexts.

I’m so excited to have Marie on the podcast today to talk about what the Inner Circle experience has been like for you. Marie’s creativity and willingness to embrace new ideas makes her to perfect person to give you an insider’s look at Inner Circle membership.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why I started the Inner Circle
  • How the forums create a greater sense of community
  • How making a financial commitment will make you achieve more
  • Why if you’re thinking about joining you should do so sooner rather than later
  • Why I chose a private forum rather than a facebook group
  • What you’ll find inside the Inner Circle and what will remain free
  • What inspired Marie to become a part of the Inner Circle
  • Some of the things Marie has already gotten out of her membership

Thank you for Tuning In!

There are a lot of podcasts you could be tuning into today, and I’m grateful that you’ve chosen mine.

Being a full-time teacher myself, I know how busy teachers are and how much time, effort and passion we put into our students. Sometimes, the last thing we want to do in our time off is listen to more piano teaching stuff! So, well done for using this time for self-improvement.

Whether you’re at the gym, on the bike or in the car, I know that you and your students will get lots out of what you learn in the long run. Just make sure you try out some of the ideas before they get lost in the business of your next lessons.
