Hope all are doing well.
I started a guitar school 4months ago. Have 8 students that I teach on a weekly basis for 30min each. At times I combine them two by two (group) for a lesson or two and than for the next week or two I teach them one- on - on.
However, I charge them $28 per month. I have one 9year old kid and the other are all working people. Between 25 - 50 years.
Can anyone give me some advise on how I can grow my Guitar School.
Thanks in advance
I think that word of mouth is the best advertising you can ever get. Don't be afraid to charge what you're worth either.
In my area, 13.00 per half hour is standard, anywhere between 25.00-30.00 hr easily. I began with 3 students. Within
a year I was at 30 and still have 30. If you have strong points in your own abilites and teaching abilites, use them to the fullest, and don't offer what you cannot deliver. I'm not a lightning speed lead guitar type of player, for example, so I don't offer that style. I focused on kick starting guitar for novice players, as well as standard lead/rhythm skills that are not out of grasp,and did that to the best of my abilities, and it grew fast. I take more advanced students to gigs with me, and sometimes the recording studio. I read alot of Tom Hess articles as well. He is a very successful instructor and offers alot of insight free of charge (TomHess.com)
Hope this helps
