Have you ever wished you could get into teaching online? Not just Skype or Facetime lessons but actually with passive income streams that mean you’re not trading time for money?
That’s exactly what Brent Vaartstra has done and now he helps other musicians and music teachers do the same.
Brent started out with a simple blog about jazz standards and has grown that into a six-figure business. He hosts the Passive Income Musician Podcast all about teaching online and making money as a music teacher and I’m delighted to welcome him to the show.
