Mentors and peers
Musikgarten supports your decision to become an early childhood music teacher and build your business even before you come to a workshop. A member of our staff will contact you in advance to discuss your goals, plans and dreams for your own business.
We can help you:
- Decide on a suitable location if you are interested in establishing a studio.
- Identify the pros and cons of different types of business setups.
- Formulate a marketing plan and budget.
- Identify the training assignments and needed materials you'll want to have prior to attending your training.
During the training, the presenter will address everything you need to get started, including curricular activities and repertoire, music learning theory, child development, and strategies for starting and growing your business. Class demonstrations and practice teaching sessions are also included for a comprehensive view of the training topic.
Our support continues after the training with follow-up communications to answer questions or to help you with other needs you may have as you begin to implement your business plan. And as a newly-trained Musikgarten teacher, you will receive Seeds for Growth, a monthly newsletter written specifically for new licensees. E-newsletters are also available on other topics as you progress in your business.
Now that you've decided on a career as a Musikgarten teacher, you probably have questions about starting your own business. For our Musikgarten teachers, we supply an easy to follow business manual that will help you find the answers. Of course, we will continue to provide the personal support that Musikgarten has become known for, answering any questions you might have along the way.
