How to Choose a Music Studio Location

When teaching out of my home music room, I was surprised to have a 10-year-old student walk through my living room, see our cat resting by a chair, and run straight back to his mom!

 

Even at 10 years old, he was still deathly afraid of cats.

 

So we had to specifically remember to put our cat in the basement during his lessons. And thus began an exciting season of teaching in our home!

How to Choose a Music Studio Location

When you think of your studio location, what do you envision? Living room? Church? School? Students’ homes? Commercial rental?

How do you choose a music studio location? Where is the best place for you to teach private lessons? These are important questions that have far-reaching and long-term implications for the success of your business.

We’ve taught in just about every studio location imaginable! Our initial “studio” was also a living room/kitchen/dining space in our first tiny apartment. Next, we had an office/music room in a two-bedroom apartment. Then, we moved into a house and designated one of the rooms as a music-teaching studio. We’re currently renting commercial space in one of our branches, two rooms in a church in a second branch, and still teaching out of our home location.

Here are the four main options to consider when deciding how to choose a music studio location.

 

So, after reading the blog posts listed above, here’s a helpful exercise to help you decide how to choose a music studio location!
