Talking to Strangers- Students From Unexpected Sources

Just a quick story about how I got a recent student. At Halloween, I was passing out candy to kids and happened to mention to one of the moms that I was a piano teacher. She took interest and within a week her son started lessons with me. Moral: Be ready in all seasons.

It’s so true! I recently bought a car that had to be brought up from another state. I gave the car dealer my phone number and told him that I teach piano. He is going to call me after the holidays to enroll his daughter.
Then I took my new car in for detailed cleaning and waxing. Same thing. When I gave them my phone number I told her that I teach piano. She has gotten her husband’s parents to agree to pay for lessons, and is ready to set up a lesson time for her daughter.
I’m learning not to be awkward with talking about SM in any surroundings, and it no longer takes me by surprise.
