The first part is philosophical...which is exactly what I needed. It is MY studio. Not my mentor's, not my competitor's, not the million other studios on the internet. It's MINE. It gave me a freedom to explore what kind of studio I wanted to be.
Next, came the layout of our industry, and the "stuck-ness" that we can be in. We are teaching just the same as teachers in the 1950's! But students are very different. Get with it or else. I totally experienced this when I first began teaching...I was teaching the way I was taught. Both my students and I were miserable...flipping through pages of a lesson book and looking at the clock. I started looking at Philip's website and others on the cutting edge, and implementing their ideas. My studio doubled immediately. A woman stopped me in the grocery store because she had heard about my teaching from her friends.
Finally, came chapter after chapter of good ideas. My lists are divided into: Right away, maybe later, and WOW, can you imagine? The great thing is, I CAN imagine it, thanks to this book. The ideas each have practical advice to carry them out.
Super book! Can't wait to read The Practice Revolution!!
I'll be able to implement a couple of the ideas.
