Most musicians approach starting to teach private lessons through trial and error. They try to figure out everything needed to have a successful, full-time studio, all by themselves.
We approach starting up private music studios like practicing for a recital - when you follow the steps and use the right techniques, you feel a lot more prepared.
When it comes to landing those first private students, a lot of music studio owners are being pulled into a thousand different directions and they wonder if they should be blogging, creating a brand new website, sending spammy DMs or running paid ads online.
Teaching music lessons doesn't have to just be about:
Struggling to collect tuition
Waiting for a reply from past band directors from high school
Social media posts resulting in no new student signups
Being scared to answer complicated emails from the parents of a student
This feeling of uncertainty is so common for musician because the vast majority of us didn't learn the business of private lessons in school.
We've already done the work when we re-started a private lesson studio from scratch in 2019. Our roster went from 0 students to 43 students in 2.5 months. When friends and colleagues started asking for help with their studio enrollment in the middle of a pandemic economy, the Outside The Bachs system was born.
Now it has been applied to 300+ private studios of various instruments and geographic locations. Instead of spending a massive budget and countless hours on figuring out what works and what doesn't, you can simply plug into our program and start attracting new students to your studio.
