creating piano studio brand danny thompson


What is a studio brand, is it the same as your logo or letterhead? And what’s the point of understanding your studio brand anyway?

Knowing how people perceive you and how you want to be seen in the community is an important part of gaining clarity in your marketing and business.

Danny Thompson is on the podcast today to give us an insight into branding and what it means to us as piano teachers. Danny came to the music teaching business from a different perspective than most of us, and I always enjoy his unique views on business and marketing.

Find out what you need to know about your studio brand by listening in.
