If you want your piano teaching studio to get noticed, consider leasing space in a commercial location. It can be an expensive venture, but it can also give your piano teaching business that added exposure needed to turn your hobby into a career.
A commercial space lets your clients know that you are a professional who is serious about their business. When you work from home, people will inevitably view your piano teaching business as a hobby, which may not be the image you want to be stuck with.
The biggest hurdle when looking at commercial space is obviously cost. Leasing can be expensive and can make your business hardly worth running if you can’t get enough students to cover your costs.
To help soften the financial blow, try leasing a commercial space with a group of people. Join forces with other music teachers who teach instruments other than piano. This will make it easy to afford a commercial location and to then acquire all the benefits that come with increased exposure for your business.
