Group Lesson Setup Checklist (+ Equipment to Buy)

Music school owners know how important it is to set up a group lesson program in their music school.

But, my experience has shown that most school owners have many questions about getting started.

In this video, we answer a lot of questions that school owners frequently ask… you could almost consider this to be a group lesson setup FAQ.

Questions like:

How quickly could you get a group lesson program going in your music school?

Do you have to begin at the beginning of the school year… or is it possible to get going at any time?

How easy would it be to generate interest in this program?

How do you get parents on board?

What equipment would you need to buy?

How much space do you need in your group room?

Not only that, Greg (from gives a brief – but detailed – checklist of how to get started in just a few weeks.

A helpful tool from a studio owner who sees about 300 kids per week with just two teachers.
