  • By summer 2011, I'll be teaching solely out of my studio. I hope to have at least 40 students by then, and bump it up to 50 in the fall, when I can add a fiddle group to my offerings.

      Ashely, this is a good goal. How many students do you have now?Let me know if you got my other email.

      • Yep 🙂 I have about 22 now, which is up from where I was over the summer (low point of 8!!!) Last year I maxed out my schedule at 33 b/c I was doing a lot of driving to all my students, so I know I can get more again.

    By January 2012 I will have a my website up that specifially has a page set up about lessons. I also want to start a YouTube channel that will feature my students performances as well as my own.

    Hi all, I inherited a hand-me-down music school I have a little less than 30 students. 5-10 of those students are on-and-off types. I want to bump that number to 40 students in the summer, then 50 students in the fall. I will need to hire 2 more teachers.

    How to reach goal: pass out flyers at super markets around the area, and run referral incentive programs.

    Long term goal – perform at children's hospitals, veteran's gatherings, hold recitals, etc.
    Perhaps also open an arts and after school tutor.
