“We need to offer more than just weekly lessons” is a thought that changed my life while chatting with a student over 20 years ago.
Most people think of teaching private lessons as a backup career choice but that was never the case for me. I knew that I wanted to be a performance major to learn everything about the flute. My teachers at Duquesne University were tough but they forced me to become the best player possible. Blood, sweat, and even some tears shaped me into the teacher and player that I am today.
Long story short, I inherited 15 private students from a friend that was moving away for graduate school before I finished my undergrad.
So, what does a young 21-year-old running a new business do?
I jumped in head on to be the best private flute teacher imaginable. My roster of students doubled within one year and I have been running the Parasky Flute Studios full time since.
It wasn’t enough though…
I loved teaching flute lessons but knew there was more to deliver to my students. “We need to offer more than just weekly lessons” hit me like a ton of bricks when I was chatting with a student about their dance studio.
Why aren’t we creating experiences that DRAW our students through the doors more than one time a week?
That’s when my studio ensemble program was born, and I never looked back.
Teaching lessons is only the first step but creating experiences that your students love will keep them engaged in music for life.
I cannot wait for us to work together and explore how to enhance your private music studio offerings.
