J.S. Bach Partita in A Minor (Sheet Music and Practice Guide)

The J.S. Bach Partita in A Minor is a huge part of the flute repertoire. But tackling this piece is far from easy.

Even non-musicians can tell just by listening that this piece is a doozy. However, you shouldn’t let that keep you from learning the music.

Once you do learn it, you can take advantage of what you learn when studying other pieces of music.

What You’ll Get:

  • Detailed practice notes
  • Tips to learn the piece
  • Example exercises for practice
  • Sheet music with minimal edits

Why This Edition?

Some other editions include a few notes, but none are as detailed as this one. Plus, as someone who has played the piece, I’ve had to learn it and learn it well.

The edition is a digital download, so you’ll get everything right after you buy it. Then, you can add the file to your iPad or print out the sheet music and exercises.

Your Arranger

Hi! I’m Hannah, and I’m a flutist, blogger, and arranger. After years of struggling to learn music, I found some ways to do it. And with the Bach Partita being a huge piece, I knew I needed to share my tips to help others learn it.

Having a good edition is vital, especially when it comes to Baroque music. But you can still use this practice guide if you already have another edition of the Bach Partita.

That way, you can compare the editions and figure out which one you want to perform.

Do You Offer Refunds?

Time Management for Busy Musicians

Time management for busy musicians may seem impossible. But if you have the skills and knowledge, you can make the most of your time.

Whether you struggle to practice “enough” or wish you could just relax more, I’ve been there. Every musician feels guilty when they don’t practice.

But sleeping and spending time with friends is essential. If you just hole yourself up in a practice room, you’ll miss out on a lot.

Time management IS possible!

Gone are the days of struggling to balance everything. You don’t have to skip meals or sleep less just to improve your playing.

After starting the flute “late,” I didn’t have hours a day to catch up to my peers. I HAD to make it work in a couple of hours a day.

Within a few years, I graduated with a bachelors in flute performance. Three and a half years after that, I completed my master’s degree.

Now, I’m a full-time freelance blogger and arranger. So I don’t have all the time in the world to practice. But I still make it work.

Do you want more of your time back?

Imagine getting to go to bed at a reasonable time. Or spending more time with friends and family. How about watching that Netflix show everyone’s been talking about?

You CAN have it all, and your musicianship doesn’t have to suffer.

What would it feel like to:

  • Get plenty of sleep?
  • Not forget or skip meals?
  • Enjoy life as a human outside of music?
  • Dedicate time to other interests?
  • Look forward to practicing?

Time Management for Busy Musicians can help!

Time Management for Busy Musicians is a comprehensive guide to help you be productive in and out of the practice room.

I know what it’s like to:

  • Feel like I’m behind my peers
  • Spend time practicing instead of with friends
  • Wallow in guilt for not practicing “enough”

And I also know what it’s like to:

  • Spend time with my friends and family
  • Play just as well as any other musician my age
  • Trade my guilt for pleasure

Now, it’s your turn.

You don’t have to waste time practicing or trying to decide what to practice. And you don’t need to feel guilty for putting your instrument away.

We all deserve time to relax and step away from music. Whether you do that for a few days or even an hour a day, you should.

Music is great, but it shouldn’t consume your entire life. Even if you’re a professional musician.

You’ll get:

  • A guide that you can download and/or print
  • Access to slides with more information
  • Lifetime access to all of the materials
  • Access to me, the program creator

Who am I?

After starting the flute in high school, I quickly realized that I wanted it to be my main instrument. But I knew that I probably wouldn’t get into music school the next year.

So I practiced my butt off (efficiently, I’m talking quality over quantity). My junior year, I transferred from community college to a state university to study flute performance.

Even then, I still didn’t have all day to practice. I had classes, and I made some non-musician friends in my dorm. And I wanted to spend time with them!

Once school was over, I sadly had to take a dreaded day job. While I could still practice, I had to spend up to 10 hours at work in a day. That limited the time I could spend playing my instrument.

Now, my mission is to help other practice efficiently and enjoy the process.

Music should be fun!

Whether you’re currently in music school, a professional, or play for fun, you want to enjoy it. You deserve to enjoy it.

If you know how to practice well and manage your time, you can have fun as a musician. You won’t have to sacrifice other parts of your life to maintain or build your skills.

Who is the guide for?

The guide is for any musician looking to manage their time better. If you feel like you don’t have enough time to practice or do anything else in your life, you need this guide.

Students can learn to balance music and their classes. Working professionals (in and out of music) can learn to balance their practicing with all of their work.

Will I ever lose access to this guide?

You’ll retain access to this guide for life. Once you purchase, you’ll receive an email where you can download the guide.

If you lose that email or the download link, email me from your purchase email. Then, I can resend you the link.

forScore and More

I created forScore and More to help musicians learn how to effectively use their iPads to practice, perform, teach, and compose.

Going digital doesn’t have to be hard.

During grad school, I had to carry a ton of music books PLUS my flute and piccolo. I didn’t have a locker where I could store stuff (my choice, but still). When I switched to using an iPad, the weight literally lifted off my shoulders.

Do you want to lighten your load?

Being a musician isn’t easy. You have to carry around a lot of gear, including your instruments and maybe even a music stand.

Add on sheet music for lessons, ensembles, and other commitments, and you could cause yourself a lot of pain.

Not to mention you might forget some of your essential sheet music at home.

What would it feel like to:

  • Never forget sheet music for a rehearsal?
  • Not have to spend precious minutes searching for sheet music?
  • Get straight to playing without having to print music off?
  • Not have to wait for sheet music to ship to you?

forScore and More can help!

I know what it’s like to:

  • Waste time looking for music
  • Carry around too many music books
  • Forget a piece of sheet music before a performance
  • Have sheet music float away in the wind

And I also know what it’s like to:

  • Only carry what I need
  • Get straight to practicing
  • Not worry about the music I have or don’t have
  • Have lighting to play, even on a dark orchestra stage

Now, it’s your turn.

forScore and More covers everything you need to know to start using digital sheet music.

Because you shouldn’t have to break your back just to carry all of your important music books to school. You don’t need to stress out about losing any loose sheet music.

Plus, you can use the iPad for non-musical things (because we’re all people, not just musicians).

You’ll get:

  • Over a dozen lessons to help you go from all paper to all digital
  • Lifetime access to all of the lessons
  • Access to me, the creator of this program

Who am I?

After years of carrying tons of sheet music around, I knew something had to change.

When I saw a fellow student using an iPad, I decided I should start using my own iPad more. So I did.

Now that I know how to use an iPad efficiently, I want help other musicians do the same.

Music Should Be Fun!

Whether you’re in college for music, have a career in it, or play for any other reason, you should enjoy the process. You DESERVE to enjoy playing. And you shouldn’t have to lug around tons of books like a pack mule.

What does the guide include?

The guide includes lessons on how to get you set up with using an iPad for sheet music. I start from the beginning to help you decide if using an iPad is right for you and which model you should get.

As you go through the guide, you’ll learn more things such as apps to use, accessories to get, and how to get sheet music on your iPad. If you have any questions, please contact me!

Who is the guide right for?

The guide is suitable for students, professionals, and anyone in between. If you want to lighten your load, you need this guide. The guide is also helpful if you want to make sure you never forget sheet music.

Now, you may not need this guide if you’re new to music. However, come back when you do have a lot of music to organize because this will always be here for you!

Will I ever lose access to the guide?

Once you purchase, you will receive an email to download the guide. Then, you will have unlimited access to it. So if you ever need to revisit something, you can do so.

And if you can’t find the file, you can go back into your email and download the guide again.

I’m ready!

Where to Teach Workbook

Start teaching private music lessons this month without missing a beat.

What if you could start teaching private lessons this month, even without any experience?

With the Where to Teach Workbook, there’s no need to worry about teaching music to the wrong students. You’ll learn how to determine where you should teach so that you can get students who are the best fit for you!

Where to Teach Private Music Lessons

Tell me if this sounds like you: you know you want to teach private music lessons, but you aren’t sure how to even get started. You don’t have experience teaching, and you don’t even know how you can manage the business side.

What if there was a way to start teaching this month without experience? What if there was a way to focus on students you WANT?

That’s exactly why I created the Where to Teach Workbook. I don’t want you to go through what I did…struggling to get students, wondering if I was doing something wrong, and not even knowing that I maybe wasn’t looking in the right places.

Get over the hump of starting your private teaching career with the Where to Teach Workbook. With this guide, you’ll know where to find students or teaching gigs that fulfill you so that you can start working within the next month.

The Where to Teach Workbook will teach you to:

  • Choose between in-person and online lessons (or choose both)
  • Determine if you should get a teaching job or start your own studio
  • Compare your options for where to teach
  • Know what to ask when interviewing for a teaching position

Right now, you’re struggling with how to get students. You don’t know if you should teach in person or online. And you’re wondering if it’s worth starting your own studio or if you should just get a job at the local music store.

Imagine if you could have your ideal teaching schedule full or students who love you and who you love. What if you didn’t have to deal with students that complain or that don’t even study your main instrument? Picture yourself loving getting ready to teach each week.

You can make that a reality with the Where to Teach Workbook.

Who am I to tell you this?

Hi! I’m Hannah Haefele, and I’m a freelance musician, educator, and entrepreneur. I’ve taught music since 2015 and private lessons specifically since 2019. When I first started private teaching, I wasn’t sure where to teach, so I got a job at a local music school.

The school had a lot of students and teachers, and I had the impression that I would be successful there. But I quickly realized that, while it was a great experience, it wasn’t the best place for me to grow my studio.

Sure, I got my first student a week after I started, but it took months to get my second student. It took another few months to get my third. And that was all the students I got.

It was no one’s fault because the school’s target students didn’t align with my target students. They didn’t have a ton of flute players looking for lessons, and there was a ton of competition for beginning piano lessons.

Still, no one should have to go through what I did. It took me months to realize that teaching for my own studio was a better option (FOR ME).

Now, I want to help you avoid that situation so that you aren’t sitting around waiting to get students. You should be doing what you love, TEACHING! Whether you teach a common instrument, like piano, or a rarer instrument, like the flute, you can make your career happen.

What You Get

In the Where to Teach Workbook, you’ll get access to the namesake workbook with explanations on different teaching locations PLUS brainstorming pages for topics like:

  • Where to teach in person lessons
  • Platforms to use for teaching online lessons
  • If you should get a teaching gig
  • Where to look for teaching jobs
  • What to consider when applying for or accepting a teaching job
  • If you should start your own teaching studio
  • How to market your studio
  • When you want/need to schedule private lessons
  • How you will price your lessons
  • What payment methods you will accept
  • If you should teach for multiple schools

You’ll also get a spreadsheet to use for planning your own studio and/or comparing the best schools to teach at. Use the sheets to:

  • Outline your current schedule so that you can decide when you can and can’t teach
  • Set aside time for relaxing because you don’t need to teach 24/7
  • Plan out your income based on your rate and the number of lessons you teach
  • Figure out if your rate is enough
  • A comparison chart to determine which school or schools are best for you

The workbook also comes with a studio contract template that I’ve used in my own studio so that you don’t have to create one from scratch. It covers sections like:

  • Your teaching philosophy
  • General policies
  • Gear requirements
  • Student requirements
  • Signup and schedule process
  • Payment processing (because you shouldn’t teach without getting paid)
  • Payment methods (don’t just take anything)
  • Your available lesson formats
  • Contact policy (you need business hours)
  • Teacher contact information

Lastly, you’ll get a checklist of questions to ask if you decide to apply for a teaching gig at a school or store. That way, you can get the best idea possible about teaching there so that you can decide if it’s the right place for you.

Let’s recap:

  • Where to Teach Workbook ($37 value)
  • Studio Planning Sheet ($15 value)
  • Private Lessons Contract Template ($27 value)
  • Teaching Gig Interview Questions Checklist ($12 value)
  • $10 off your first 1:1 consultation ($10 value)

Total: $101

This guide is also for current private teachers who can’t seem to get enough students (or students, period). You may not be teaching in the right environment, so this workbook will help clear that up for you.

College music professors can download this workbook to use with their private students. If your students want to learn more or if you’re teaching a pedagogy or entrepreneurship class, this workbook is a great supplement.

If you’re a musician and want to increase and/or diversify your income, you need the Where to Teach Workbook. Teaching doesn’t have to be a full-time gig, but you should know where you should teach to make the most of it.

How does this work?

I already have teaching experience. Is this right for me?

The workbook can help aspiring AND current private music teachers. If you aren’t getting as many students as you want, or the students you do get aren’t the right fit, this guide will help you switch up your career so that you can get students you enjoy.

I’m still in school. Do I need to dedicate a lot of time to this?

The Where to Teach Workbook is PERFECT if you’re still in school. Aside from choosing where to teach, one of my biggest regrets was when I started. It took until my masters degree to start teaching regular private lessons.

If you want to avoid getting a day job or having to supplement your teaching income with other things, you should start now. This system will help you avoid all of those problems.

I want to teach [insert your instrument here]. Will this work for me?

You can use the tools inside the workbook and bonuses no matter what instrument you teach. Whether you teach piano, flute, or even the accordion, this system works for you. That way, you can enjoy teaching and control your schedule.

What if teaching isn’t my main career goal?

Many musicians want to become performers, and some don’t want to teach. If you know you don’t want to teach private lessons, this system might not work for you.

However, teaching private lessons is a great way to start or grow your music career. People will always need private lessons, so you can always find students. This guide will help you know where to look for those perfect students.

Do I need to be good with technology?

Absolutely not! You can easily download the PDF files from the email, and you can access the Google Sheets with a Google account.

Can I get a refund?

Due to the digital nature of this product, there will be no refunds after purchase. However, I will work with you to ensure that you’re happy with the product.
