I have been thinking of putting together my own studio website for next year, however I am not really sure where to start. I am looking for ideas of what should be included on the website. Also, can anyone recommend good websites of other Suzuki teachers that I could look at.

We’ve been working on the design of our studio page for a decade or so. The current version is at:

http://www.geocities.com/boxwoodstudios/

We also have an invitation-only YahooGroups, and link to our academic pages, the quartet and have some local pages we use (free advertising).

You can check other teachers’ pages by looking at the Teacher Directory at: http://www.geocities.com/techfiddle/teachers.html

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you will find some webrings, and there are a number of teachers’ pages on those rings, also.

A lot of teachers are not aware of this, but you can get free advertising online locally by contacting:

Yahoo Local:
http://local.yahoo.com/

Magic Yellow Pages:

Best wishes for your new studio!!

Toven,

You might be interested in checking out http://www.musicteaching.info

I just love how easy and affordable it was to use their template, you can view my result by visiting my school’s website:

http://www.ntste.musicteaching.info

Their companion site, http://www.practicespot.com is FULL of useful resources for music teachers and I highly recommend both of the books by Philip Johnston: The Practice Revolution, and Promoting your Teaching Studio.
These books changed everything for me about 5 years ago.

Best to you,

The links you’ve both shared look great! I’ll have to check out the free advertising. :D

I just finished revamping my studio site: http://www.musicinthecolony.com I’m still working on the feedback form & search engine keywords, they’re not operational yet!

What a fantastic web site!!! Rynna, you are so on top of your game at such a young age, good for you! No doubt you have also had terrific training if Anne Bowman was your teacher. I’m sure your kids are lucky to have you. Let me know if I can help you with any challenges you might face with being a young teacher. I opened my school at 21, and for me it didn’t get completely easy until I was the roughly the same age of the parents. Although that is true for me now, I found that I was still able to project the authority of the role of “teacher” through confidence, competence, communication, and caring.

Best to you,

Charles

wow, I like the resources offered at practicespot.com (thanks for posting the link to that one!)

I’ve had my website up for a while, and I think some of it needs revamping, but you can take a look if you’re interested
