January is the perfect time to target those children (or adults!) who received a new violin for Christmas, or maybe inspire those individuals who have made a New Year’s resolution to dust off that old violin in the closet and get some lessons!
I’m positive that you will find new and creative ways to fill up your studio in 2016 with Marketing Strategies for Music Teachers by Bree Lewis. I recently read and reviewed this book and was impressed with the variety of different strategies included; online marketing ideas, community networking strategies and ways you can be more effective in the things you already do to get more students. I hope you find this book to be as useful as I did!
