Starting Your Studio: Business Side of Teaching

About the Presentation

Eileen Cooper Sędek and Diane Aragona presented a live, interactive webinar entitled “Starting Your Studio: The Business Side of Teaching” on February 23, 2020.  The event was aimed at guiding new teachers who are just beginning to build their own private studios through the logistical aspects of the business; filling in the gaps between what was taught in their pedagogy classes and the ongoing demands of running their studios. Topics included Marketing, Contracts, Taxes, Insurance, Studio Locations, Coordinating Accompaniment, Scheduling Recitals and Finding a Work-Life Balance.  Attendees were able to ask questions in real time (moderated by Elizabeth Saunders, who hosted the event) via the Zoom Webinar chat feature as well as during a dedicated Q & A portion at the end of the presentation.
