Does anyone here have any experience teaching group piano lessons? I teach high school piano, and have been informed that my previous piano curriculum will be changing this year as we are now doubling the amount of students in the class. I currently have 8 pianos and will have 16 students.

The class was previously structured so that the beginning weeks were group instruction. Once the students began to become independent, the format of the class changed to "piano week" in which they worked independently on repertoire in the method book with more individual instruction when needed. Alternate weeks were "theory weeks" in which the whole class received group instruction in music theory and completed theory packets.

I am now at a loss as to how I should be teaching this class so that all students are engaged and making good use of their class time.

We are scheduled in 90 minute class periods M-F. The class is a semester long.

Any input is greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance!

JN
