Jump Start Your Studio

6 Week Live Bootcamp

It's time to take control of your studio

Ya'll, I know business - especially as it relates to being a musician.  I have built 3 businesses in music over the past 11 years, and I'm ready to share what I've learned with you!   If there's one thing that the pandemic taught me, it's the fact that music teachers and studio owners are resilient educators who are making a different in this world.  However, too often, our businesses and studios are not running in tip-top shape, leading to burnout, overwhelm, and just not feeling like you can make a livable wage.  It's time to change that!

As a piano teacher, I have been able to: 

✅ Sell my commercial studio for a considerable profit
✅ Generate enough leads in my private teaching to fill my ideal hours in my teaching schedule.
✅ As a piano teacher, provide 100% for my family.
✅ Develop a side-business related to my teaching career, something that I can work on as many or as little hours as I please for additional income.  
✅ Not worry about inconsistent month to month income with a monthly invoicing system collecting tuition payments for me.
✅ Seamlessly transition from in-person to online lessons and back again, with digital organization skills.  

Organization.  Marketing.  Website.  Social Media.  Invoicing.  We're going to touch on it all in the 6 week bootcamp.  This will be a LIVE bootcamp with weekly meetings and resources - I'll walk you though all you need to do to jumpstart your studio and business for 2022.

Each weekly topic will alternating to a different business skill for musicians and studio owners.  We will touch on that topic, giving you enough information that you can dig as deep as you want to for that particular topic.  Perhaps you need to start your social media from scratch - or perhaps you need to tighten it to gain more students.  We'll cover both the overview AND give you a chance to work more in-depth should you want to.  

Weekly meetings will be Tuesdays 12PM Central starting the second week in January, 2022.  All meetings will be recorded if you can't make it live.  During the week, chat with me and fellow classmates in our online discussion groups.  

Week 1:  Ramp up your social media
Week 2: Optimize your website for attracting new students
Week 3: Blogs & SEO
Week 4: Organization - get your digital and print music in order
Week 5: Automation - invoicing, scheduling, and taxes
Week 6: Finding what fuels you - expanding your business and side hustle

*These are broad topics to get you jumpstarted and excited about the systems in your studio. After the live 6 week bootcamp, there will be an option to dive in some of these topics deeper with Kathy.
