Are you ready to grow?
Teaching is a HUGE passion of mine, and that passion doesn’t stop in the studio! For years I’ve been working one-on-one with teachers all around the world to help them to establish and revamp their studios and online music businesses so that they can enjoy being successful and sought-after professionals.
You’ve found some success with your business. Now you need to take things to the next level. It’s time to reset the rules. Are you ready? Let’s do this!
Music studio business coaching makes me feel like I’m not alone in this entrepreneurial journey and can talk to an expert who is able to help me think through certain challenges and/or opportunities that will increase the success of my business. Sara is personable, a great listener, and offers sound advice based on experience and research. She’s also a great connector, providing valuable resources to people and tools that are relevant to clients’ needs. Janay’ Turner, Piano Teacher and Owner of Turn2Music
Time to reset the rules.
Admin tasks, marketing and social media management, long teaching hours that seep into personal time… these things can be overwhelming!
Does this sound familiar? You find yourself skipping out events with friends and family because you just don’t have the time or energy. And that vacation you had planned? Forget it. The funds just aren’t there, and if you stopped working for two weeks, there’s no way you’d ever catch up.
It’s the dreaded too much and not enough dilemma. You’re working so hard, yet it feels like you don’t have much to show for it. Frustration is building because you can see where you want to be, but how on earth do you get there??
Create an Ideal Schedule
Looking for more students? We’ll discuss the how-tos for marketing and ideal clients. And you’ll learn how to attract the right people for the right reasons! Need to cut back? Scaling back your schedule doesn’t have to mean less income. And it doesn’t have to be terrifying.
Stop the Admin Overwhelm
It’s time to streamline your processes so that you don’t waste your energy on the boring stuff. Repeat after me: No. More. Crazy. Admin. Hours. You’ll learn to develop systems that will free up precious time. (So you can do those fun things you want to do.)
Develop Your Unique Studio Brand
Brand is important – it’s why people come to YOU! We’ll chat business and teaching philosophies and take a look at your web presence. No more cookie-cutter copy or uninspiring photos! We’ll find the right words and images to show the world that your studio is unique.
Build a Studio Community
Wouldn’t you LOVE a studio full of happy parents and students? We’ll establish specific ways for you to create clear communications and boundaries. And you’ll learn how to create a strong sense of community in your studio so that you can stop stressing and start teaching.
You deserve to run a business that you love.
I want you to imagine the possibilities… You get up in the morning and check off those admin tasks like they’re just no big deal, because you’ve got the right systems in place, you’re awesomely organized, and you’re ready to take on the world.
Your students and clients are fabulously matched to what you really want to offer as a teacher. (Those marketing efforts finally paid off!) And when you leave the studio, you feel energized and inspired. You even have time left in your day to spend quality time with your family and friends.
And that vacation? You’re finally going this year. And it’s going to be epic.
Because you deserve to dream about something OTHER than business.
I would highly recommend Sara as a business coach for your music studio business. The investment of time and money in the coaching sessions was very worth it. She helped me to see what my value as a teacher was to my students, and gave me the confidence to communicate that to the families in my studio.
The results have been a significant increase in my revenue, and a greater respect from my clients for me, not only as a music teacher, but as a business owner. I now have a studio schedule and policies that will allow me to enjoy my profession as a music teacher in a way that I never have before…and this will be my 34th year of teaching music!

Sara’s coaching assisted me in thinking about studio policies as well as varying ways such as Skype lessons that I could offer to students. I enjoyed learning these things as it helped me feel more grounded and confident in these areas which I struggled with before. I really appreciated all of the follow up emails with assignments and what was covered in the meetings. I feel like I received a lot of personal attention and that she really tried to connect with me in a personal way, which is a big deal to me in choosing to do business with someone.

Sara helped me set clear, achievable goals for myself. She has a great ability to listen to a person’s unique situation and offer guidance that is specifically tailored to their needs. But probably more importantly, she helped me to set boundaries with my students/parents, especially in the area of makeup lessons. All I had to do was implement her business suggestions, and then I could put my attention on the part of my work that I love, which is teaching. Sara’s advice has been invaluable. Thank you for continuing to inspire me to step up my game!
