So you’re getting ready to launch a new studio.

Or maybe you’ve been teaching music lessons for a while and you’ve just decided to “make it official” but you don’t exactly know what that means.

Well, you’re in the right place.

Since 2016, I (Andrea) have been helping music teachers build financially sustainable studios.

This website contains hundreds of inspiring and informative blog posts and podcast interviews, but if you want to hit the ground running, these are the resources I recommend first.

Let’s get started!

First Steps


What are you trying to do?

You’re probably eager to jump right in – build a website, start marketing, find students, do all the things – but if I can make a suggestion, it’s this: take a beat to just get clear on what it is you’re trying to accomplish.

Taking a bit of time to sort this out on the frontend is going to help you make a lot of decisions later on and, ultimately, save you a lot of time, money, and frustration.

My FREE Vision & Values course will help you do that.
