“I have known Andrea in a variety of contexts now and she is undoubtedly someone who is on top of her game and can help others to be too!
Her “can-do” attitude, realistic planning and goal setting, and knowledge of current markets and technology make her an amazing business coach.
Her influence has impacted choices I have made in my business and professional life for the better, and I am so happy to have her in my corner as an ally and friend!”

“A week ago I was ready to give up on my dream and move on to something else.
Today, I am excited, have an action plan, and ready to run hard after my dream!”
“A week ago I was ready to give up on my dream and move on to something else. Today, I am excited, have an action plan, and ready to run hard after my dream!
What changed between now and a week ago?
I had an excellent consulting session with Andrea Miller at Music Studio Startup! She helped me to clarify my financial goals and figure out how much I should charge and how many students I need to recruit in order to meet my family’s financial goals.
I had been so overwhelmed with all of the different ideas I had floating around in my head. Andrea helped me to figure out which one to start with and which ones to put on the back burner for a future date. We discussed policies and how to solve specific problems that I was running into in my studio.
At the end of our session, she gave me specific, actionable goals and asked me to check in with her and let her know when I had completed those goals.
Now I feel confident that I can find the students that I need, make the income that my family needs, and have plenty of time to spend with my husband and kids!”

“I feel much more confident about my value as a teacher…”
“Andrea is very thorough. She covered aspects of my finances that I’d never considered. I feel much more confident about my value as a teacher, and I’m impressed with the amount of research she put into my local music environment so that she could give me more accurate advise on how to help my piano teaching business thrive.”
