I am the first to admit that a successful piano teaching business needs to be professional and polished. Advertising materials need to be slick, emails and phone calls need to be returned on time, studio premises need to be polished, and paperwork needs to be in order.
But sometimes professional and polished just isn’t enough.
Creative Piano Teaching is Your Key to Success
Because without creativity and ingenuity, a piano teaching business is nothing more than an old jalopy with a shiny new coat of paint.
This explains why we commonly come across very, very successful piano teachers whose business practices would make your skin crawl. They live in derelict old homes at the end of dirt roads that make the Psycho mansion look like Disneyland (slight exaggeration). And yet, their piano studios are bustling. Although their piano studios are a little rough around the edges, their piano teaching skills are way ahead of the curve.
No amount of spit and polish can replace piano teaching ingenuity.
Piano teachers who strive to do things a little differently, to continually reinvent themselves, to risk failure for the chance at success… will always succeed.
