STG 134: Busting Some Common Myths About Teaching Guitar – Part 3


word of mouth referrals

There are lots of myths floating around out there about teaching guitar lessons. They sound logical, so most people who’ve never experienced anything different just accept them at face value and operate their teaching studios accordingly. The problem is that when you operate based on wrong information, the results you produce are usually messed up, too, and your business is never as successful as you want it to be. In fact, some of these common myths can actually wreck your teaching studio if you base your decisions off of them!

This episode is the final part of my three-part series on the common myths many guitar teachers tend to believe. In part 3 I’ll cover things like how to be successful even when the economy is bad, how to know whether or not “the customer is always right”, dealing with students who cause you problems (and using lesson policies to solve them) and how to stop seeing your competitors as enemies. Whether you’re new to teaching guitar or you’ve been at it for a while, do yourself a favor and listen to this series…the truth can set you free!
