I spent a great deal of time today re-vamping my piano studio policy. And while I agonized over every single sentence, I got to wondering just how many parents would actually read it. My guess is 60%. And I think I’m being optimistic.
My family will tell you that I have an odd sense of humour and so my mind naturally went to crazy ways to ensure that my piano studio policy gets noticed! If you also find yourself shaking your head as you reiterate, remind.. (and want to retire!)… enjoy my list and then add your own zany ideas in the comment section below 🙂
1. It’s a Secret
Print your piano studio policy in invisible ink. Hand out a blank sheet of paper that must be heated over an open flame to reveal the words.
2. Be The Willy Wonka of Piano Teachers
Embed a “golden ticket” in your studio policy. Hide a secret code amongst the text. The first person to find the code and phone you with it wins a free chocolate bar at every piano lesson for a year.
3. Kick it like Oprah
Give a free car to the first person who can recite your piano studio policy entirely from memory with no errors. Make it a micro-car. It’s all in the fine print.
4. Get Dramatic
Stage a dramatic reading of your studio policy at the end of your recital. Hire local high school students to re-inact common piano studio scenarios and involve members of your audience in finding a solution to the problems that arise.
5. Make it Permanent
Get a tattoo with your most important studio policies clearly laid out. Wear only tank-tops for the entire year to constantly display your informative art.
6. Go Viral
Deliver your studio policy in a video format directly to your client’s inbox. Hire the “Charlie bit me” boy to read your policy aloud in his adorable English accent. 473 million people have watched and loved this little guy. You’ll totally have their attention. (Okay..I’ll include the link for those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about.)
7. Use Your Pet
Make your dog or cat a t-shirt and iron transfer your studio policy to the back of the shirt. As your clients pet your adoring animal in your waiting area, reading your words will be unavoidable!
