Management by Website

As I mentioned in a previous post, I "inherited" a music studio. Not exactly in my plans, but hey, when life hands you lemons.... That's what's been keeping me occupied in the mornings, and, coupled with my classes and other errands, has turned me busy as a bee.

Most of the things I set out to do for starters have already been done. Fliers are printed, facilities are fine-tuned, and the web site is up. Believe it or not, I'm actually quite enthused with the project now, with several more adjunct ideas brewing in my mind.

I'm quite proud of the web site I made. I am now officially a convert to the Wordpress cult. It's made a lot of things easy.

What's great about the web site is that it's helped me focus on the things that need to be done. The whole exercise is about promotion but the web site has also put a spotlight on what I want the music studio to be. There are all these areas for improvement that are coming to the fore based on what we offer now and what I think we can offer. And the web site has also become a galvanizing force among the teachers, too!

Stay tuned for more developments!


  1. Hi Dom,
    As a "retired" musician, I'd love to inherit a music studio. I don't if it'll support itself financially, but I'm sure it'll be fun.

  2. Never much into music myself though this venture is turning out to be a fun challenge.

    I think the trick is to add more revenue streams within the location itself, if the music lessons alone don't quite cut it.
