How Much is Your School Worth? [7FMS Ep. #79]

by Daniel Patterson


What would someone pay you to buy your music school?

In this practical episode, we invited Jeff Homer back on to the podcast.

Jeff is an expert in our industry… as he has bought 40+ music schools over the past five years.

In this episode, he gives a simple formula for calculating the value of your school.

Then, he takes the time to dig into that formula and show what could increase the value of your school.

Here’s what we cover in the episode:

  • Understanding your school’s earning power
  • Factors influencing your school’s value
  • Tools to measure retention in your school

  • Recognizing when you’re overvaluing your music school
  • Key universal factors for music school success

I’ve talked to and coached many school owners over the years.

Many times I hear these owners say: “I just am not really great at the business part of owning the school. I feel disorganized and I don’t understand what steps I should take to make things better.”

If that resonates with you… you must listen to this episode!

Jeff gives a clinic on basic valuation and financial fluency principles that will change your perspective and (potentially) your school’s future.
