Today I’m talking to a piano teacher who is in the early stages of transitioning his private studio into a multi-teacher studio.

In order to be sustainable, there are some foundational things that have to change to when you scale up from being a solo teacher studio to a multi-teacher studio, especially for owners who want to be strictly administrators and not also be teaching.

I really enjoyed this interview with Chris because you get to hear how he’s experiencing and troubleshooting some of the challenges through this growth. On top of that, he’s super honest and I always appreciate that transparency. Enjoy!
