Jana was hoping to start a Music Together class on Trinity’s campus this spring under the direction of the Music Institute of Chicago but she ran into a little glitch. She was even willing to teach the class for nothing so Trinity students wouldn’t have to pay for the classes. Apparently Music Together headquarters wasn’t excited about that and insisted on her receiving compensation. So they applied for a grant but when it didn’t come through they decided not to allow the class.
Bummer. There were a lot of moms on campus looking forward to the opportunity. Instead, they suggested that Jana apply for Music Together Directorship and open her own center on campus. Then she can charge whatever rate she wants for the classes so long as the students purchase Music Together materials. This actually works out better. Jana would have had to apply to become a director in Slovakia anyway, now she’ll have the chance to go through the training a little earlier plus she’ll be able to be mentored by the director of the Music Institute of Chicago who has been very supportive of Jana.
