In this episode of the Music Teachers Expand Online podcast, hosted by Jaime Slutzky, a technology strategist, we explor how to complement in-person music lessons with online offers.
Many music teachers rely on traditional face-to-face instruction to earn income, but today, we challenge the misconception that online and offline teaching are mutually exclusive. The focus here is on expanding your reach, making a greater impact, and embracing the possibilities that online platforms offer.
This episode will provide valuable insights on how to leverage online tools and technologies to enhance your teaching practice.
- Creating an Online Component for Current Students:
- Consider offering a membership site with additional content, backing tracks, or informational materials exclusively for active students.
- Extend access to past students for a nominal fee, monetizing the offering.
- Establishing a Public Teaching Environment:
- Utilize platforms like YouTube, social media, TikTok, Instagram, or Facebook groups to reach a larger audience.
- Provide free content to attract prospective students, but incorporate an ascension model to convert them into paying students.
- Hosting Online Workshops:
- Online workshops combine the benefits of live interaction and online features.
- Structure workshops as one to four sessions, each running for one to two hours.
- Ideal for teaching specific subjects or concepts that may not fit into regular lessons.
- Creating Digital Products:
- Develop text-based digital products like PDFs, eBooks, or resources for teachers.
- Monetize digital products beyond your current student base and use them to support your online presence.
- Implementing Online Courses:
- Online courses offer comprehensive and focused instruction, requiring less time and bandwidth compared to individual lessons.
- They can be a powerful addition to your studio and help transform your teaching structure.
