This is the time of year when piano teachers start raving about summer camps:
But if you're used to teaching private piano lessons, the thought of organizing a summer camp can be a little overwhelming. Or maybe a LOT overwhelming.
If you're thinking about hosting a summer camp, here are some ideas to help get those slots filled up! (You can find more information here.)
Have a Sign-Up Incentive
1. Early Bird Registration Discount!
You could offer 10% off for all students who signup by a particular day. Important - make sure you work this discount into your original fee so you don't lose money.
2. First Five Bonus!
Offer $10 off for the first 5 students who sign up. You could offer more or less depending on the size of your camp.
3. First Choice of Time Slots in the Fall!
Carol Ivkovich of Masterpiece - Music says this incentive works wonders in her studio!
4. Bring-A-Friend Incentive!
Kids LOVE to do camps with friends! Simply choose a theme where no musical background is required. This option would work if you host a Music Blast Camp, like Sara Campbell has created, or a Composer Camp. Now ALL kids are eligible to attend your camp. That'll surely help boost your numbers! (Music Blast Camp is included for FREE in our Group Lessons 101 webinar!)
Get creative and remember to keep it fun!
