Want to Reach Adult Students? Watch How This Teacher is Doing it.

Do you offer music lessons for adults in your studio?

While music lessons are certainly not a new trend, they have been a hot topic of online discussion recently.

There’s good reason for this. As many of us are incorporating group lessons into our studios, we are discovering that group lessons for adults are deeply rewarding - and so much fun - for everyone involved.

So how do you reach adult students to fill your classes?

I found myself asking this question recently when I decided to add adult piano classes to my schedule. How could I effectively get the word out to adults when I’d always geared my marketing toward families with young children?

I had to do some work on my website to make sure that I was attracting adults to my studio - as well as families with children.

So when a teacher from Los Angeles reached out to us this spring about building a website for her mostly-adult studio, I was intrigued. What would a studio website geared toward adult students look like?

Your Website: Business Card or Power Tool?

A few years ago, your website was likely a simple online presence that listed what you offered and how to contact you - a virtual business card.

Today, though, you can expect far more from your website.

It's a powerful tool for attracting new students, educating parents about music lessons, sharing your policies, connecting with new families, and showcasing the unique qualities of your studio.

Your website is also capable of helping you manage your studio with ease. You can offer tuition payment options, scheduling, enrollment, interactive calendars, and share parent resources.

In this blog post, you’ll see how a teacher in Southern California used a website reboot to prepare for huge studio growth by taking her website from business card to power tool.

You will learn how to use these same techniques to increase the power of you own website and make your job much easier.
