Your Input Needed

So, I have this idea, and I can't think of a better place I could possibly go to get the feedback I need. Please contribute.

What if...I took stay at home moms who have some music background (like, people who took piano as a kid and can remember a couple of songs?), and charged them like $200 to train them to teach beginning piano lessons. Then, I gave them all of my philosophy and policies related to running a piano studio (that have taken me years to develop), and I did all the marketing that would bring in students for them. At this point they would become part of my piano studio. I would sent students to them, they would teach them. The students would pay the studio, and I would pay the teachers according to their level of skill and how many students they had, etc.

In my mind, this is the perfect work at home deal for moms. Of course, they would need to have a piano, but you can get used ones for a couple hundred.

1. Would you try this? Why or why not?
2. What would you want to be paid per hour to do it?
3. How many hours would you want to work?
4. What would you want to pay for training?
5. Any other thoughts?

You can email me if you'd rather, but please let me know your impressions! sarakay@gmail.com

  1. Sara,

    I love this idea and I love new business plans!!

    I think that this would be a great idea for SAHM who have the musical abilities but maybe not your new business mind and spirit.

    I have no idea about pay b/c I have never taught or paid for piano lessons but if you ever want to talk marketing or business strategy let me know. I am currently writing business processes for my new job and I would love to share ideas.
