Just like any other community wherein most members treat each other as family members, ours also have these top trending topics and products. As their instructor, I usually get to stay with them long after our practice sessions and find out about these “hot topics” that they love to talk about.
Dealing with different age groups with different interests is quite challenging for me. Unfortunately, it is something that I need to do in order to be a more effective instructor to them. Whenever you start your career as an orchestra instructor, the first thing that you need to do to be effective is to get closer to each member. This will make it easier for you to have them work together, which is the number one secret in having a world-class orchestra.
I must admit, some of the topics that our members are talking about were of no use or does not concern me. They are talking about it so much that younger male members got curious to search for it and actually buy a bottle or two.
This is one of the best examples that I can give to show you how challenging this career could be. As an instructor, you won’t have a choice but to be part of the lives of your members. This is my number one secret in keeping our members happy working with each other. A lot of people find it hard to make their members work as one, but the secret lies within the instructor.
I am the common denominator between each of the members and responsible with how these people react to each other. This is the reason why I always make it a point to be closer to each member and have them welcomed as part of the family. Each of them share things that they would never share to a friend, but would openly talk about it in our studio.
If you are aspiring to become a great maestro, the first thing that you need to become is a great friend to your members. I cannot consider myself as the best instructor today, but as least, I am very much satisfied with how our members see me as one of their trusted friends. In turn, they also trust each other and be an effective team that works as one on stage.
