Why is it so hard to run a music studio? 

The truth is, running a music studio is HARD WORK! But for many of us, it is hard work that we were absolutely not equipped for. Years of piano pedagogy classes do not prepare you for scheduling, taking payments, advertising, or dealing with crazy parents. 

I'm here to help. I started The Studio Challenge Facebook group in the summer of 2016 and in less than 18 months we grew to over 1500 members. I wanted to create an encouraging and challenging group where teachers and studio owners could ask questions and grow their studios. I wanted the focus to be on business. Music teachers talk about repertoire, teaching styles, new curriculum, and all sorts of musical things. But very few actually talk about how to run a music studio.

Our Facebook group has helped HUNDREDS of teachers to improve their studios and their business strengths. You don't have to sacrifice one for the other. They aren't mutually exclusive. You can be both a great teacher AND a great business owner! 

If you are ready to take the next step, this Patreon is for you. You need a little extra push, some structure, and a little consulting to get your studio moving forward.

You don't have to do it alone anymore. 

My name is Shane and I have been teaching for 15 years in almost every way that you can imagine:
  • out of my HOME
  • in CHURCHES
  • in MUSIC SCHOOLS
  • in MUSIC STORES
  • using SKYPE and VIDEO LESSONS
  • on my own in a COMMERCIAL SPACE
  • running a MULTI-TEACHER COMMERCIAL STUDIO

I am a multi-instrumentalist and teach a variety of instruments:
  • GUITAR
  • PIANO
  • DRUMS
  • UKULELE
  • BASS GUITAR
  • SAXOPHONE
  • and MORE! 

When I got married 11 years ago my goal was to provide for my family through teaching music lessons. When my son came along, that goal changed to being able to provide without having to teach 40+ hours each week.

There was a time where I taught almost 80 students every week. I am four years into owning my own studio and I now teach less than 10 students each week.

Our studio has grown and thrived to more than DOUBLE it's original size! 

You can do this.

You are already an awesome teacher.

Now it's time to have an awesome business.

Goals
15 of 20 patrons
When we reach 20 Patrons, I'll upgrade my video and audio equipment for future videos. An external mic and webcam will be a significant upgrade over my current setup and will make for better looking video and clearer audio.
