Have you felt overwhelmed in the recent weeks and terrified of what is going to happen to your private teaching studio?
Are you constantly worried about what the next day will bring?
Do you wonder how you can even start or grow your studio during these uncertain times?
A bit of history...
I developed the original Music Teacher's Playbook in 2018. This course has helped HUNDREDS of music teachers expand their private teaching studios, increase their income, and revolutionize their teaching.
For the 2020 edition, I recognize the need many teachers have to learn how to move their lessons online, retain students, recruit students, and navigate creative solutions for online music learning.
To that end, I have INCREASED the amount of information in this course to include online training, recruiting, and sustaining practices AS WELL AS all of the original information and tools for in person teaching.
It is my hope that this new format will help even more musicians and educators thrive during this difficult time. Who knows how long we'll have to be online. It's time to be prepared to do this for a while.
Many resources tell you what to do but don't teach you HOW TO THINK. Having the correct mindset about studio building online and in person is CRUCIAL because it allows you to adapt, create, and be authentic in everything you do. I've figured out a method to change you think so you can be as successful as possible.
You can purchase every single studio building book or attend every webinar about how to build a studio, and I guarantee that you won't see these results. Books don't tell you exactly what YOU need to do in YOUR current circumstances - where you live, who your competition is, identifying your community's specific needs, etc. In MTP, I walk you through step by step of how to discover these things for yourself AND I help you develop your own individual materials like recruiting emails, website design and copy, overall studio branding vision, and more.
You have access to someone who knows what they're doing. That may sound silly, but it's true. I've lived it. I've built studios in 3 different locations. I've moved my whole studio online AND AM STILL RECRUITING NEW STUDENTS. I'm sharing my knowledge with you directly to help you as much as anyone possibly can.

I'm a musician who has always been a teacher, and I figured out a way to make teaching private music lessons a dream job for myself and others.
While working towards my doctorate in flute performance, I built a private flute studio to "practice" my teaching skills before landing the "dream job" as a full time flute professor. This was the third new studio I had built, so I was already a seasoned professional. After countless applications and interviews for higher ed positions, guess what happened.
No glory job.
Then, I woke up.
I realized I already had everything I wanted: I was teaching flute, playing flute, making a HIGHER INCOME than I would teaching at the university level, and I was my own boss.
I taught myself all the business skills I needed to make my studio GO. I rolled up my sleeves and made the lesson experience for my students and myself unbelievable. And now, I'm here to teach you how to do it too.
If you're unhappy with your job as a private music lessons teacher or want to create your own studio, I'm here to help you!
A brief note...
I know you're a musician. I know it may be difficult for you to invest in yourself and your business. I hear you. I do not take your investment lightly.
Think about how much money you’ve spent on lessons. Now, think about investing in something that will almost instantly bring in money and teach you how to run your OWN BUSINESS.
If you're truly ready to learn these skills, I really hope you'll join the Playbook family. ❤️
