Music Teacher Coaching is for music teachers who want private, confidential problem solving or development and brainstorming time with an experienced Music teacher and music school owner.

If you are a music teacher with questions related to running your teaching studio as a more efficient business or are looking for ideas or strategies to improve it, then private Coaching could be the quickest solution for you.

Perhaps you need help putting together your studio lesson policies, or knowing how to manage teachers. You might want to consider changing your business structure or are considering expanding but don’t know where to start. Running a Music School as a solo teacher or while managing other teachers involves juggling many “hats”.  Talking through your ideas and problems with someone who has personally experienced them, lived to tell the tales and can suggest solutions proven to work is what private Wendy’s Mentoring is about.

Wendy has vast and unique experience in starting and building Music schools at home, in studios, schools and franchising. Ultimately, as a “hands on” operator, Wendy knows what it is like to be responsible for every aspect of running a Music School – the good, the bad and the ugly! 

Finally, you shouldn’t wait any longer to move your teaching business forward! Wendy is a great problem solver and creative thinker for your individual issues. Her experience as a business founder also means Wendy can assist in building curriculum, systems, procedures and policies.
