Most Guitar Teachers Have Zero Business Training
Sadly, the reality for most guitar teachers is a struggle to find and keep students. Most guitar teachers earn well below the national average and the great majority have to work a second job to cover basic living expenses. While these are the facts the reason is almost always a lack of business knowledge. Some say I was lucky to be earning 6 figures teaching guitar but I would disagree. Luck had very little if anything to do with it. I credit my success to my education. I have read approximately 1000 business and coaching/leadership books including almost every best seller in the last 30 years. I have attended dozens of business training seminars delivered by some of the best business coaches in the world like Tony Robbins, Jay Abraham, Ryan Deiss, Perry Belcher, Joel Comm and many more. You could say I know a thing or two about business. Make no mistake, guitar teaching is a business and to give yourself the best chance of success you'll want to get as educated as possible.
Proven Business & Teaching Strategies Opposed To Guess Work
You may be surprised to learn that very few guitar teachers use proven strategies either in their teaching or business. We are living in a time where intense research is disrupting industries everywhere and education and business are no different. Often what was only recently considered standard practice or common knowledge has been found to be ineffective. Take for instance our failing school system in many countries. A common held belief is homework and long school hours are essential for success yet in Finland, school children do not get homework and school days are shorter flying in the face of long held beliefs. We would expect Finland schools to be doing worse but instead, they are the best in the world. I should add that they only hire teachers with Masters Degrees in education which means they highly value training.
Earning $100,000 Per Year Takes More Than Desire
If you want to earn $100,000 per year or more teaching guitar you must understand the business aspects. Without the all important business skills likes sales, marketing, business planning, branding, systems etc at best, you'll earn a basic wage. In The Essential Guide To Teaching Guitar I will take you on my personal journey sharing with you the essential skills you will need to succeed as a guitar teacher and the basics of business needed to get you to $100k and beyond.

Out of those, 18 did not book with me, 6 dropped out before subscribing and 4 dropped out after subscribing leaving 41 students just from G4 enquiries (not including my students from before G4). How does that sound? Jeff Cooke
I think I'm a changed person since first being on the G4 mentor programme. Both in business and as a teacher I have grown in both departments! having more expectations from my pupils! I feel my 1-2-1 pupils (classical guitar) can sense a change and more of an expectation on their behalf too.” - David Aldridge Manchester UK
"I LOVE the method! I love the sales script, the marketing plan, everything really. These are all things I know I've needed to do, and started to do, but seeing everything laid out like this is going to make my life SO much easier. Now I don't have to type up my scripts from scratch, write my own method, etc.” Eric Bourassa - Fort Worth Texas, United States.
"David , I know I have said this many times before, so here goes anyway. You are a true gem, the real deal whatever we want to call it. You inspire, motivate, give people different points of view and you are always willing to share your insights and help with your great knowledge. We have never met in person but your honesty and integrity makes me call you a friend regardless!” Markus Bruun - Newcastle NSW Australia
"I really appreciate all the advice and encouragement you have given me over the past few months. This has been the best week so far and I made $900 this week which is amazing. People keep calling and book lessons and the challenge now is to stay focused to manage all the students that I have." Joakim Nikolaidis - Paddington NSW Australia.
