How To Turn Your Passion In Music Teaching To A Full-Time Career, Acquire More Private Students, Increase Your Income… In The Next 6 Months Or Less.
Once you learn and master these skills, you’ll be able to constantly acquire students at above market rates… with the current music qualifications you already have.
From the desk of Mark, The Happy Pianist:
My Dear Teacher,
I have an important message to tell you today. If you want to bring your teaching income to the next level, save the next 7min to read every word I have for you below.
Most teachers know who I am. You may know me as the guy who send you piano enquiries every now and then, who brings students to you, and probably the one who fulfil your dream as a full-time private piano teacher.
After working with hundreds of piano teachers for the past 6 years, I realized there are Big Three Problems faced by many music teachers, that stop them from become full-time private piano teachers, and earning an income they truly deserve.
The Three Big Problems Music Teachers Face
#1: Not Getting Student Enquiries
If you want to go full-time private piano teaching with full-time income, you need to have a constant stream of student signups. And that starts with getting parents and students to enquire about your lessons first.
So some teachers create a personal website, post their entire teaching profile, but no one enquire. Some create Facebook fan page, posts every single day, but still no one ask anything about their lessons.
Ok, maybe this is not that big a problem, because you do get enquiries from agencies like mine, The Happy Pianist. But here’s the next problem.
#2: Not The Preferred Teacher
Every now and then, there are parents and students enquiring about piano lessons. If you’re a registered teacher under The Happy Pianist, you’ll realise I send out enquiries almost everyday, sometimes multiple times a day.
However, today’s customers (parents and students) are spoilt for choices for teachers. It’s not just my agency. They can get teachers from multiple music agencies, from their friends’ recommendation, from neighbours, from Facebook, from Music Schools…from anywhere!
So, how can you be the preferred teacher among all the other teachers out there?
You may think just charging the lowest fee will do, right? And that brings another problem.
#3: Not Charging The Right Fees
I have teachers who want to earn more, so they charge really high. But can’t get students.
I also have teachers who want more students, so they charge really low. But still can’t get students. (Because there are parents and students who don’t want cheap teachers!)
Many teachers thought that charging low (or very low) fees is the surest way to get students. True enough, some parents or students just go for the cheapest teacher.
Yes, you get a lot of students, but because your fees is low, you have to take in A LOT of students, just to have a sustainable income to feed yourself!
If I have matched students for you before, you know I always do my best to quote the best fee for you. Because I want to make sure you earn enough, so you can feed yourself, and really teach music full-time.
Charging the RIGHT fees is important if you want to make music teaching a full-time career, that will give you a regular, and sustainable income for yourself, and your family.
Are You Struggling With One Of The Big Problems Above?
If one of the problems above is stopping you from going into full-time private music teaching, don’t worry.
You are not alone.
In fact, for the past few years, I’ve been getting queries from a lot of teachers (maybe from you too!)
– How to get more student sign ups
– How to quit music school and go and teach full-time
– How to charge lesson fees? Am I charging too high? Or too low?
– How to talk to the student or parent when I want to raise my fee
– How to quit my job and be a full-time piano teacher?
I do my best to help every teacher who ask me for help, and I help them. (If you ask me for help before, you know I do my best to help you).
But I realise what I’m doing is not helping the teachers for the long term. It’s often a quick answer for short-term solution.
What will make the teacher to be a full-fledged, full-time music teacher, is by equipping them with the right skills to be one.
After much thoughts and preparation, I’ve decided to design a training help music teachers to go full-time private teaching, and earn a respectable income they deserve.
Music Educators Business Bootcamp Online Course
This is a complete online training program specially designed to help you turn your passion in teaching, into a full-time career, and earn an income and lifestyle you deserve.
Here’s what you’ll get:
How To Get More Student Sign Ups On Your Own
Sure, I’ll send you piano students, but I will also teach you how to get students for yourself! The reason you get so many enquiries from me a day is not by accident or by luck! There are things that I do that gets student enquires flooding in everyday. And I’ll show you how you can get students yourself, even if you have no IT skills or Facebook fan page.
How To Standout And Be The Preferred Teacher Without Lowering Your Fees.
All businesses know that if price is low enough, they will surely get the customer. That’s called price war. Sure, your fees can go very low and you’re surely get students. But how low can you go? How can you go full-time teaching by being the cheapest? You’ll learn how to position yourself and be the preferred teacher, even if your fees are higher.
How To Charge The Right Fees, And Get Students To Pay You Above Market Rates, With Your Current Qualifications.
One big myth among teachers is this – the higher your qualification, the higher you will earn. If this is right, why are there teachers with degree or masters degree in music, struggling to get students, while my teachers with just Grade 8 can earn more than them? Qualifications is important, but there are many other aspects parents and students consider when they look for a teacher. The bootcamp will reveal all these to you.
"10 Action Steps To Full Time" Plan
You’ll learn a lot, and the next step is to take action to build up your own private music studio. And I don’t want you to be overwhelmed from learning. Hence I’ve prepared a 10 Action Steps Plan that you can work on, step by step. And I’m very sure you can potentially see students join you before you complete the 10 steps.
Lifetime Music Teachers Mastermind Group
You’ll also be part of a secret mastermind group, where you’ll get direct support and access to experienced full-time teachers for advice to build your teaching career, and other partnership opportunities too.
Music teaching is a lonely career. Your most common friends are piano students and their parents. That’s why we want to build a community of music teachers where we can help and support one another.
1 on 1 Live Coaching Call
You’ll also get a live zoom call with me and we discuss in detailed strategies to grow your music career based on your current situation. Are you a new teacher just out of college? A teacher teaching in music school now planning to go full-time private? An experienced teacher who unable to raise fees? I can guide you personally over the call (because I’ve advised teachers of all levels).
Here’s What Some Teachers Say About The Bootcamp
In the Music Educators Bootcamp, Mark taught piano teachers the business aspects of getting more students.
Apart from relying on recommendations and Happy Pianist to get me students, Mark shared strategies that allow me to get students myself.
