Something that I learned very quickly in the three years that I taught music lessons is that the profession has significant seasonal fluctuations. There is a massive swell in September, when kids are going back to school and parents are setting up extracurricular activities, and another less severe swell in January when all of the Christmas gifts of music lessons come rolling in. Summer, though? June, July, and August are dead months. Even granting a “free” week a month didn’t stop me from losing students.
I spend most of my spare time playing with spreadsheets, my violin, or planting vegetables in my garden in hopes of bringing new insights into frugal living. Please enjoy, and don't forget to sign up for our monthly newsletter here.
