Now for some shameless self-promotion!
Over the last few years, I've been asked the same question over and over: How do I get started in my own teaching business?
I can really empathise with this question. I know firsthand how hard it is to start a music studio.
Are you like me when I started teaching?
I had zero students, nowhere to teach from, zero income (but lots of debt), no prospective students and no idea how to start.
It was a long road that took me where I am today: I can't keep up with student requests. I get to set my own hours, control my vacation time. I don't have to put up with a nagging boss or coworkers. And best of all I don't have to deal with rush-hour traffic because I work from the comfort of my home!
Not too shabby.
So then what is the answer? How do you start a music studio?
I've earned my fair share of free dinners trying to answer this question. The truth is: its a BIG subject. Way to much to cover in one evening. And way too much to cover in this blog post. So I I won't try.
I'll do something better.
For free, and with zero obligation, you are invited to join my Piano Studio Handbook list. This group is for those serious about starting a successful and fulfilling teaching business.
I'll use this list to send out *in depth* information for music teachers that I wouldn't post in normal pianoblog posts.
There's zero obligation to signup, and you'll receive answers to your questions like:
How do I get students? - Where do I start teaching? - How do I handle my first lessons?
Emails will be packed with answers to any question you can think to ask. And I HOPE that by helping you, I can save you the many years of trial and error that I went through to build up my teaching practice.
If at any time you decide you want to stop getting tips from me, un-subscribing is simple and I *don't ever* share contact info from any pianoblog readers with outside sources.
If you're really serious about getting started the right way, sign up below!
