Money is usually a big factor when you’re thinking about getting started with teaching guitar. How will you be able to afford to rent teaching space? How much new gear will you need and how much will it all cost? What about furniture? Setting up your website? Advertising? There are lots of things you could spend a bunch of money on when you’re just getting started, but the good news is that it doesn’t have to cost you a small fortune to get started with your teaching studio – you can get started for as little as $100 and the value of your time.

There are lots of obstacles to starting your own teaching studio, but money doesn’t have to be one of them. Listen in to find out how to save a bundle when you’re just getting started.
