What to Do When Your Music Student is Ready for a Break

What to Do When Your Music Student is Ready for a Break

A client in our Accelerator program recently asked a question…

“What do I do when a parent says that their child needs a “break” from lessons?”

We all know what that means…

When a student goes on break… they typically don’t come back!


So… how do we keep the student?

More importantly…

What can we do to prevent a student from needing a break in the first place!

I recorded my answer and shared it in this short video below:

One of the principles that I draw out in this video is the idea that “marketing” isn’t just a way to get students…

It’s a way of communicating your value to anyone that comes into contact with your business.

To that end, you should be marketing to your current students, as well.

If you’re not sure how to do that…

Or… you’re struggling (in general) to get new students…
