I have lesson policies and contracts, pricing flyers, an organized invoicing system (through my music staff), and a steady income from my lessons. I went from making roughly $3,000 annually from my private studio to a projected $30,000.

What you'll leave with:
Stress-Free Studio Creator, Violist/violinist Entrepreneur
Hi, I’m Laura! I am a violist, teacher, and coach who grew up as a farmgirl in a fishing village of 300.
I traded the snowy tundra of Canada for the palm trees and sandy beaches of Florida. The important things that were instilled in me like work ethic, resourcefulness and the importance of community ended up in the suitcase.
I use my Delray Beach home as a launching pad for a life of teaching, performing, and traveling (sometimes all three at once!).
What is your biggest takeaway from our work together?*
There is still so much I hope to do, and so much I want to give my students. It is ok to gradually build up to my goals but in the meantime, it is important to establish boundaries and charge what I’m worth.
How were we able to solve the problems you were facing?
Rylie: We solved literally everything – My invoices are set up, the fees are set for the semester, and I was able to take on a few extra students without the huge worries of rescheduling makeup lessons. My Music Staff is a lifesaver! I also finally have a summer lesson scheduling system that really works with the flexibility that my families and I need!
