    You’ll recognize today’s guest from an episode a few weeks ago about the MusiCARES Volunteer Music Teachers Facebook group. Today Judy Naillon returns to talk about how she began offering recreational group ukulele classes to boost her studio income during the summer and expand her network for private lessons.
    Anyone who struggles with the summer slump or just wants to try something new will be sure to enjoy what Judy has to share.

    047 - Natalie Doughty on Branding a Studio with Purpose and Passion

    I invited today’s guest to be on the podcast because her studio has a deep sense of focus and alignment that has made her really effective as a teacher and independent studio owner. Every aspect of how she runs her studio points to her core values. It’s a studio that exudes care, connection, and creativity. It didn’t start out that way, though. Today Natalie takes us through the journey she’s been on that has made her studio what it is today.

Timely topics

The Music Studio Startup has topics that are of interest to teachers running their own studios or those thinking about it. The wide variety of people Andrea interviews keeps each program interesting. Andrea asks just the questions you would ask. And the show notes are helpful for a good resource. I’ve appreciated all the podcasts on Music Studio Startup.

Insightful and Actually Interesting

I think a lot of podcasts have this thing where they take an idea that has already been hashed out many times and try to spin it as “new” information, updated with the sensationalist words of that week. This is definitely NOT one of those podcasts. Already in the first few episodes, Andrea has brought up topics that we as music business owners might forget to consider, and she actually asks the “real” questions that help teachers and business owners to take their craft and business to the next level. I’ve recommended this podcast already to all of my colleagues. Well worth the listen.

Relevant and Beneficial!

I listen to a lot of podcasts about business and about music education. This one is the best of both worlds, helping music teachers like me learn new ways to run my studio!
