“Do you have any friends who would like to learn guitar?”
The $800 question. Increasing your income for less hours requires building groups. Building your groups requires enrolling as many students as possible who are willing to learn in groups and then keeping them. The best strategy is via an ‘Invitation from a friend’. Your students are your best source of new students especially for groups. Talk to your current students about whether they have any friends who want to learn. This not only means more students it means automatic groups. If they are already friends being in a group will be natural for them. To do this with a current students discuss simply ask the question. “Do you have any friends who would like to learn guitar?” Friends who learn together tend to stay longer. I can guarantee you that if you get into the habit of asking this question your groups will be full in 6 months.
