040 – Eric Branner of Fons on Building a Payment System to Transform Teaching Studios (Rebroadcast)
Read the full transcript for this episode here.
In this episode, I share some details about the Music Studio Startup summer Business Building program and the grant competition for new (and new-ish) music teachers!
My guest today is Eric Branner, a guitar teacher, mentor, and a co-founder of Fons, an online scheduling and billing platform.
If you’ve been listening to Music Studio Startup for a while, you may have heard this interview with Eric before, but I wanted to bring it back because 1) Eric is awesome and 2) because Fons is a sponsor for our studio grant competition! They’re huge supporters of music teachers and they’re setting up our grand prize winner with a 6-month Fons subscription.
