Kristin Yost has always had a keen mind for the business side of piano teaching. As you might know from her book, she became a $100,000 piano teacher – but she didn’t stop there!
She went on to open her own music school, The Centre for Musical Minds, and throughout her journey she has always found ways to stand out. Even in a crowded market, you too can fill your studio fast if you play to your strengths and put plans in place.
Take a listen to today’s podcast where Kristin shares how she has achieved her success and how you can find your unique point of difference for your studio’s brand.
