How to Build--and Keep--a Suzuki Studio/Family From First Lessons Until HS Graduation

Instructor: James Hutchins,

Event Description

This fun and laid back seminar will talk about how to attract new students and keep them in your studio from their first trial lesson through high school graduation. During our discussion, I’ll also address all points of the Suzuki Triangle. Come prepared with questions and concerns you’ve encountered for students of all ages and their parents. I’ll also share answers I’ve given to common questions at the many parent talks I’ve given during my 30+ years of teaching.

Course full.
