Struggling to Find Teachers to Hire for Your Music School? [7FMS Ep. #8]

by Daniel Patterson
Do you struggle to find teachers when you have a position to fill in your school?

Do you get few or no applicants?

Does it seem like quality teachers are hard to find? That the talent pool is shrinking?

If so, you aren’t alone.

We’ve discovered that this is the most frequently cited difficulty that music school owners experience in running their school.

So – we’ve made an entire episode about getting more applicants for your school.

In this episode, we cover the following topics:

  • Why focusing on the number of applicants sets you up for failure… and what to do instead
  • A step-by-step process for finding higher-quality candidates
  • The mistakes that Nate made early on in his school… and what you can learn from them!
  • The “numbers” that you need to know for filling your positions fast
  • What to put on your job descriptions that will lead to more and better candidates
  • How Nate has refined and improved his hiring funnel over the years
  • Hiring a new teacher isn’t just “hiring”: when you realize what you are actually doing when hiring, you’ll get a better result
  • Specific templates that you can use for your job descriptions, hiring interviews, and networking

The ideas and templates in this episode can change your business and make hiring a lot less stressful.
