Group Lessons: Train Your Team to Teach For You

One of the more challenging aspects of owning a music school is hiring, training, and retaining great teachers.

In fact, in my many years of consulting with music schools, the “hiring problem” is the most commonly cited “sticking point” for owners.

That may be the case for many schools… but not for Greg’s school in Northern Virginia.

In this video, Greg explains the hiring and training system that he uses to run a 300 student music school with just 2 teachers and a few teaching assistants.

And – he even shows how YOU can borrow his entire training framework to train your staff.

There’s nothing to buy or download… full details in the video below.
