What’s your studio website platform?
My Music Staff?
These are common website platforms for music teachers, and there are benefits to each one.
When I built my first studio website in 2013, I chose Squarespace as my website platform.
Prior to that, I had attempted to start a website with Wordpress and eventually gave up in frustration. Like most teachers prior to 2013, I knew very little about website-building. I needed something that I could figure out with relatively little frustration.
My husband Jeremy (who is now the website designer for Studio Rocket Web Design) told me about Squarespace. He liked their business model, their values, and their goal to make the website-building process simple for everyone.
So I took my laptop to our local brewery for several afternoons. I spent a total of about 20 hours sipping half-pints of dark beer and building my first studio website on Squarespace.
When my studio website was done, I was proud of it. It wasn’t perfect, but it looked modern (for 2013!) and I received frequent compliments on it. And the process was almost fun!
