STG 115: Why Guitar Teachers Who Specialize Make More Money


word of mouth referrals

Just like with doctors in the medical profession, you can choose to generalize or specialize as a guitar teacher. That choice can make the difference between a thriving business with almost no competition and struggling to attract enough students to make a good living with your teaching studio. There are a few situations where it makes sense to be a generalist guitar teacher, but specialists tend to be more successful most of the time.

In this episode, I’ll explain the difference between being a specialist and a generalist when it comes to teaching guitar lessons, I’ll get into the pros and cons of each approach and I’ll tell you how to know which way is the right way to go for you and your teaching studio. Sometimes conventional wisdom can steer you in the wrong direction, while the road less traveled can often be the ticket to your success. Listen to this episode to find out why!
