I think they charge about $60 for a half hour violin lesson in Suzuki method (not group).


wow This is definitely not the norm. [Linked Image]

Betty - thank you for your comments! The best response I have for all of them is to say that all these things have been very well thought-out by not only me - but several others whom I trust and are experienced in business.

The legal business registration process is actually very straightforward and simple (for a sole proprietorship which is what this will be). The taxes and accounting part are not so easy - my father (accountant) is working with me on that aspect.

As far as my savings - I am not parting with it easily or enthusiastically, trust me. smile

Here is the website for the "Successful Studio Strategies" conference.

I know that not every one of Sam Beckford's strategies will be useful to me, but I am excited to learn what ones will be.

I hesitate to resurrect a thread that has pretty well spent itself, but this month's American Music Teacher has a most interesting article on running a studio and grossing (not making) $100,000/yr. Worth a read, if you're an MTNA member. If you're not, and you live in the USA, shame, shame!

Hmm, John is there any way this article can be accessed online? (paid online subscription, or similar?)

You might want to contact them via email and perhaps they could pdf you a copy.
