Presented by Brenda Hunting - Piano and Theory Teacher, Previous President of QMTA
As the CEO of your private studio you are in charge of tasks that keep the wheels turning. Apart from planning what you will teach, you also have be prepared to develop systems for IT, finances and bookkeeping - just to name a few. Running your studio efficiently is the backbone of your business and essential to your success.
This session of First Thursday will get you ready and into gear for the 2023 teaching year. Topics will include the following important business aspects of your studio:
• The different hats you wear
• Important documents
• Managing make-up lessons
• Deciding your fees
• Enrollment forms - why they're important and what to include
• Resources to support you
These regular professional development sessions were originally the brainchild of MTA Member Annette Allerding, who wanted music teachers to be able to meet and share ideas. Originally named Keys, Cakes and Conversation (KCC) the group went online during Covid, and eventually reached numbers often in excess of 50 teachers, meeting each month on Zoom. The Music Teachers' Association of NSW is delighted to bring these sessions into our fold. We want the sessions to continue to be free to our members, but we also believe it is important to pay presenters for their valuable time. So we ask you to consider a giving a donation towards the costs if you are able. You will be given the option to donate when you book your place.
