What Teachers Are Saying About Our Events...

"I loved the attitudes of every single person involved in the event! It was so refreshing after having participated in events for other groups that weren't so warm-hearted and inviting."

- Dianne (Georgia, USA)

"I really liked being able to personally connect with other teachers, discussing the great sessions and gaining new ideas from their perspectives and experience (and hopefully doing the same for them)."

- Christa (Surrey, UK)

"I loved the balance between all the areas that are important to being a teacher. Loved how we had the opportunity to share our ideas."

- Tara (Ontario, Canada)

Your Host.

Hey, I'm Nicola! I'll be your host for this event. If we haven't met before, I'm a piano teacher in Dublin, Ireland and I run the Vibrant Music Teaching membership and Vivid Practice app.

At my core, I believe music teaching should be fun, for both you and your students. This means we need lots of tools and interactive ideas for our lessons, and fresh inspiration at regular intervals. It also means we need effective business practices so that we're not being weighed down in admin! The Teacher Turboboost is about all this – but it's also about coming together as a community. And you won't find a friendlier, more open or more welcome community than this one.

Why Cincinnati?

When choosing the location for this event, we thought carefully to find the best balance of ease and affordability.


The airport has direct flights from many cities. (full list here). The airport is about a 20-minute drive from the venue.


Cincinnati is about 2 hours drive from Indianapolis and Louisville, 3 from Fort Wayne and around 4 from many other big cities.


If you don't have a direct flight here, it may seem more expensive than a big city. But the savings quickly stack up with your hotel and food.


Once we found our amazing venue in Cincinnati, The Penthaus, we knew it was the right choice for this event.
