guitar

a little good, a little bad

Good points, work wise for a self-employed music teacher: I have more work than I've had this time of  year for quite a while. Not enough, mind you, just more than I've had in previous summers, which is still better. Summer is always very quiet for me, this particular end of it is almost dead, but this year it has been a little busier, also with a few new pupils starting lessons.

One bad mark or two: Tonight I've had the second no-show for a new pupil's first lesson in two days: somebody had booked to start lessons yesterday, I ran back from Central London to be on time for him, he didn't turn up and was unavailable by phone. Tonight I had a similar experience with somebody else. Annoying.
