Reply To: Teaching outside of your specialty area
Hopefully, you are having a successful student teaching experience by now! I would have to agree that a lot of these skills do come with time. I am in an
opposite situation in that I am a string player learning to teach band. I would, however, recommend that you observe as many music instructors as possible in the area you would ideally like to concentrate. You will most likely discover that you are very talented and capable and gain more confidence.
Best of luck,
