I’ll Makeover Your Designs… Interested?

Instead of asking for a million presents, I’d like to thank y’all for supporting me and being part of my world…

I want to give you a professional makeover! (I’m not touching your hair– I’m talking professional.)

The Professional Makeover includes:

  • A professional, custom-designed logo that suits you (and your vibe)
  • A new post card design featuring you and your studio
  • A new business card design
  • A shoutout to the Artiden community
  • Short feature about you or your studio on Facebook community

Total value: approx $1,118

To the Lucky Winner…

The entire makeover will be custom designed just for you– it’ll reflect you and your vibe…

So that people will want to get in touch with you– you’ll look so dang cool with your new logo.

Your new logo will make (almost) anything look professional in 3 seconds flat. (e.g. concert/recital programs, bio sheets, website, anything.)

The makeover will also help you get new clients– professional post cards, business cards, plus shoutouts and features– you’ll be set. ;)

Your friends might get jealous. Just saying.

All you have to do is sit back and relax.

The designs will be ready to print while you’re off relaxing. You’ll get the full package, ready to send to the printers.

    What really is music?

      Hey Irwin, thanks for the question. I’ve entered you into the giveaway; there’s an entry form above that you can enter from (and get bonus entries). I’ve been told that it might take a bit of time to load sometimes.

      That’s an awesome question, by the way– thanks for entering!

    What’s your favourite part about teaching music?

    • Grace Miles June 1, 2013 at 3:06 pm

      Hey Colin, that’s such a juicy question that it deserves its own post!

    What’s your approach to senior citizen/elderly students who are using their lessons as therapy as opposed to learning?

    • Grace Miles June 13, 2013 at 5:08 pm

      I would focus on exploring different types of music. I’d start off with what the student likes most, say a few pop songs or Bach. Some people find technique (like Hanon) enjoyable because you don’t have to think about it, so it’s good to try that too. Plus, it builds on so the student would be able to play more pieces in the future. I’d make sure that the student has at least two easy pieces and one slightly challenging (where they have to get absorbed into figuring it out). After a while, the student will probably like piano so much that they forget the therapy part and come back hungry for more learning. The key is to show them what’s in store, right at the start. Play a selection of pieces, so they’ll hear something they like. Also show them difficult pieces, ones that they’ll have to work towards. Give hope and enjoyment, that’s really what they’re looking for.

      That’s a great question, and I do have more to say. There could be a post about this soon.
