    Do you have a vision or vision statement for your studio? In this episode I share some questions I think about to get a more vivid picture of what I'm trying to accomplish with my music studio and business.

    000 - Summer Podcast Break

    000 - Summer Podcast Break

    I’m going to be taking the summer off of podcasting. I don’t like taking breaks, but I think welcoming a new little human into the world warrants some time away.
    I’ve already got some really fascinating podcast episodes lined up for the fall and I’m working on some cool business planning resources that have grown out of the conversations I’ve had with many listeners and clients over the last year, so I’ll be getting those ready to share with you in the fall, so stay tuned on social media for those updates!
    And if you’re looking for a professional development opportunity this summer, consider the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy in the Chicago area! I’ll be presenting in the Student and Young Professional Pre-Conference Track and I’d love to connect if you decide to come.
    Thanks for listening I’ll be back!

    029 - Lee Stockner on Going Deep to Serve Students with Special Needs

    Today’s guest, Lee Stockner, started out as a traditional, classical piano teacher, but when he had the opportunity to teach a student with Autism, he found some of his personal experiences with ADD made him able to relate, and teaching students with special needs became Lee’s niche.
    On Lee’s journey to find ways to be a better teacher to his students, he developed creative solutions to the challenges they were facing and OTHER businesses ended up growing out of these solutions. It’s been an interesting journey!

    028 - Allison McDonald on Branding Your Next Studio Recital

    028 - Allison McDonald on Branding Your Next Studio Recital

    With spring officially here, that means recital season for so many music teachers. Today we’re taking the branding conversation we been having over the last few episodes, and applying it to our studio events, like recitals!
    Joining me is Allison McDonald, an event planner from St. Louis.
    Now, I know most of us aren’t hiring event planners to coordinate our recitals and the majority of our prep time is probably spent choosing rep and rehearsing students. But while we’re on the topic of focusing our studios to serve our ideal students well and communicating our brand values through the way we run those studios, it got me thinking about recitals and how we might approach those events with more intentionality.

    027 - Tim Topham on Building a Specialized Teaching Studio

    When Tim Topham was trying to make a living as a music producer and it wasn’t going well, he started taking on piano students as an additional source of income. In our interview, he talked about how little he knew about teaching at that stage.
    Over time, Tim discovered his unique teaching style lent itself particularly well to teaching teens and students who were feeling dejected by their current music lesson experience.
    His studio has now become known for his creative teaching techniques and attracts students who are looking for something different. Tim is known worldwide as a thought leader on creative piano teaching and the host of the Creative Piano Teaching podcast.
