How School Music Teachers Help You Find Students

School music teachers can help you find students.

In fact, your best resources when starting to establish your studio are the local school music teachers. Schoolteachers are helpful because they care about students and want them to succeed.

Also, connecting students with high-quality private teachers is in their best interest. The more kids in their ensemble that are taking lessons, the better the ensemble will be. The better the lessons, the faster their students will grow.

And when their ensemble sounds great and wins competitions, they receive more recognition and funding.

Because of all this, school music teachers can help you find students. They are both externally and internally motivated to connect students with private teachers.

TRY THIS TIP: Tips for connecting with school music teachers:

 

  1. Get an in-person meeting.

The best way to build your studio is to get out there and meet school music teachers in person. If you want to really make a quality, memorable connection, get an in-person meeting.

This can be set-up through a phone call or email. Almost all school districts have teachers’ phone number and email address available on a public website.

 

  1. Respect their time.

School teachers are busy people. They have full days that give them very little spare time to meet with anyone other than parents, students, or administrators.

Because of this, keep your meeting time as concise as possible.

Set a definite time frame in your request. For example, instead of asking “Could we meet Monday at 3:15,” try “Could we meet Monday from 3:15 to 3:30?”

 

  1. Make your conversation more about them than you.

At a get-to-know-you meeting like this, your main job is to build a relationship with the school teacher.

Try to figure out their interests and passions. Of course, you should have an elevator pitch that briefly summarizes who you are and what you have to offer. But other than that, ask questions about how you can help them meet their goals in teaching.

It’s tempting to dwell on all the wonderful things about you as a teacher. But be sure the focus of the conversation is on them and their needs.

 

  1. Send them a gift.

A small gesture goes a long way. School music teachers can help you find students, and they need to be thanked for this.

A gift card to their favorite coffee or ice cream shop will cause them to associate good things with your name.

It will help you stand out and be more memorable.

 

  1. Follow up.

After your in-person meeting, send a note or email that expresses your gratitude for sharing their time and energy with you.

Briefly, mention the action steps you will do to help them, and wish them a wonderful conclusion to their week of school.

A handwritten note would also be a good way to send the gift card!

 

Remember that school music teachers can help you find students. A strong relationship with them is an important part of your marketing strategy.
