I travel to most of my pupils mainly because I don't have separate teaching room. I have a handful of singers who come during the day during term time.
I currently have over thirty pupils who I travel to and have to allow 15 minutes between each house call to allow for traffic. If they don't live within 15 minutes, I don't take them on.
Mondays: I have 3 sets of siblings = 3 hours of teaching but I'm out of the house for 4 hours.
Tuesdays: 4 individual lessons of 30 minutes but again out of the house for almost 3 hours
Wednesdays: 2 individual lessons and 2 sisters = 2 hours teaching, out for 3.
Thursdays: 2 individual lessons, then a family of 3 = 2 and a half hours teaching, 3 and a half out.
Fridays: 1 individual 45 minute lesson, then a mother and daughter taking 1 hour 15 minutes = 2 hours teaching, 3 hours out.
Saturday: Teaching from 9.30 to 2pm = 3 and a half hours teaching, 4 and a half out of the house.
Crikey! That's 6 hours of teaching time lost each week!
I'm in the process of converting the garage into a teaching room, so if I could fill those wasted hours with new pupils I'd be rich
Or, even more importantly, I could spend more time with the family
