Today’s interview is with a teacher who decided to move his entire piano studio from live, in-person lessons to online lessons.

Thanks to the current pandemic, this probably describes most of our studios right now, but Steve Hughes made this transition in 2018, when it was relatively uncommon to teach online and his motivation to do so was to create a better life for himself and his family.

Steve’s story is a great example of how a personal vision can lead to creativity in how we set up our studios and finding ways to uniquely fill gaps in the market.
