Looking for feedback on a section of my blog

https://anitaelise.com/category/piano-teaching-blog/getting-the-most-from-piano-class/

It's for new piano parents to read, before they enrol their kids in piano class.

Would appreciate feedback, both positive and negative, so that I can improve it.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Just had a quick browse through it.

I think it's a great way to have contact with the family of the child who is attending lessons with you.

It's particularly good for non-piano-playing parents to understand the importance of how to practice, posture etc

Not too sure about have your piano blog mixed up with your 'how to chop your veg' blog! Doesn't look too professional. But do love the idea of having a blog on piano teaching/learning etc.

Will possibly do this myself at some stage.

Thanks, for the feedback. Actually, i've deliberately put all my blogs in one place. I often, in the course of piano teaching, meet mothers who are struggling to balance managing the home, working, and taking an interest in piano class. Some of the blogs, in the other sections, have been useful to a few working mothers,  and adult students, who need to learn to do it all. So, they indirectly help me in piano teaching.

Still, will think about what u said.

Here's the link to my blog on Piano Pedagogy. I hope that teachers who teach young beginner students find it interesting

Thank you. Some good points here. i run a studio which encourages viewed lessons as an option. The parents feel involved and the student responds to the 'focus' for the most part.
I think your piece highlights the need for communication.

The parental involvement really helps when children give trouble, cos they give trouble at home and in piano class simultaneously. So often, working with the parent to discipline them really really helps.
