From 0 to 260 Students (w. Brian King) [7FMS Ep. #70]

by Daniel Patterson


In today’s episode, we explore a new episode format…

5 for 5!

We’re going to bring on owner’s of amazing music schools and ask them 5 questions… and give them 5 minutes to answer each!

Here are our 5 questions…

  1. What are you most proud of… something you do exceptionally well at your school?
  2. What’s one challenge you’re experiencing right now in your business?
  3. What’s one lesson learned in the last year?
  4. What’s one action would you recommend that someone listening could take right now that will make a difference in their school?
  5. What’s one thing you’ve done for yourself personally in the past year that has brought you more joy as an owner?

Today, we bring back on Brian King of Rock U Music School in Woodbury, Minnesota.

Brian grew his school from 0 to 260 students in just over a year and a half.

And, in this quick, hard-hitting interview… Brian reveals the thoughts, the mindsets, and the actions that he took to make this happen.

During the episode, Brian made mention of the #1 marketing technique that he used to grow Rock U. 

It wasn’t ads, it wasn’t SEO, it wasn’t social media…

It was something a little more old-fashioned!
