I have TONS of podcast episodes covering many different aspects of teaching guitar, but these are the episodes you should check out FIRST if you’re operating a music school with other teachers working for you (feel free to share some of them with your staff teachers):

If you have other teachers working for you, but you aren’t doing group guitar classes yet, you’re leaving money on the table. Teaching your students in groups is a great way to leverage the time of your staff guitar teachers, allow them to teach more students and generate more revenue for your music school. This series of free videos will explain how to grow your teaching studio to a whole new level through teaching group classes.

Step 4: Check out my free Retention Rate and Attrition Rate Calculators
Before you can can get to the next level, you have to identify where you currently are AND you need a way to measure your progress. I put together these simple web-based calculators to show you how well you’re doing with keeping your existing students from quitting. Gather some statistics from your staff teachers and try them out…it’s easy!
My Retention Rate Calculator will give you a snapshot of your effectiveness as a music school in the form of a percentage. The higher your percentage, the better you’re doing!
Your students are the life-blood of your business. My Attrition Rate Calculator tells you the percentage that your music school is bleeding to death. The lower your percentage, the more healthy your business is.
Step 5: Join the free STG Facebook Group (Public Guitar Teacher Forum)
I also put together a free Facebook community for guitar teachers called the STG “Public Guitar Teacher Forum”. It’s a great place to ask questions, build relationships with other guitar teachers and learn more about how to be more successful as a teacher. Just click here to join the group and we’ll get you added within a few hours. NOTE – you’ll need to have a Facebook account to join (creating one is easy).
