Outsourcing Social, Parenting, and Long-Term Retention of Students (Q&A Episode) [7FMS Ep. #119]

by Daniel Patterson

We took a break from our normal release schedule to do a Q&A with listeners of the podcast.

We got so many good questions that we couldn’t answer them all…

So, we’re going to keep scheduling these monthly lives until we run out of questions (the list keeps getting longer though).

In this episode, we cover the following topics:

  • More thoughts on social media for your music school
  • How to delegate social in your school
  • How to delegate in your school (in general)
  • More thoughts on long-term retention (not discussed in past episodes)
  • Parenting
  • Work-life balance
  • Much more

This episode covers a lot… it will keep you on your toes!

Show Notes

During the episode, Daniel and Nate mentioned a number of resources…

The Music Teacher’s Ultimate Facebook Guide | I interviewed dozens of piano teachers and music school administrators. I asked them to tell me exactly what they wanted to know about getting students on Facebook. This guide is broken into three sections: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. It contains everything you need to begin attracting new students on Facebook TODAY.


How Much is Your School Worth? – 7FMS Ep 79 | Do you know how much the school you’ve built is worth? Do you think of your school as an asset? An asset that you could sell, or pass on, or even use as a piece of your wealth-building strategy? If you haven’t, you should listen to today’s podcast episode, because we’ve brought back Jeff Homer (friend of the show) to talk about putting a valuation on your school.

How to Mentor Amazing Musicians in Your School – 7FMS Ep 29 | Do lessons feel monotonous to your students?

In our new podcast episode, Nate reveals a powerful system that Brooklyn Music Factory has used to bring meaning to each student’s lesson… And, a way to inspire teachers to set big goals for their students.

  • Increase home practice time (Proven! We have years of data showing that this happens)

… Then you need to head over to GroupLessons.com, sign up for a free demo, and we’ll show you how hundreds of studios have easily started a new group program (sometimes in just a few weeks)… with little to no difficulty.
