How to Build a Music Teacher Website

Build a Music Teacher Website

Music teachers make the world go around. So many of us have fond memories of sitting on that piano bench, singing in that first recital, or tuning up for the school band.

As a former student of piano, voice, and clarinet, I'm always happy to see music teacher websites here on Bandzoogle. So what makes for a great Music Teacher website? Read on!

Key Elements for a Music Teacher Website

Homepage

First off, your Homepage should provide a quick snapshot of who you are and what you offer. This can include a short bio made up of two or 3 lines where you make sure to mention your name, plus a professional headshot.

To integrate a bit of visual interest on the Homepage, add a video or some images. Think: a tour of your music school studio rooms, yourself or your students performing, for example.

Add a blog feature right on your Homepage. Here you can write about things like upcoming performances, panels, or discounts. This will encourage people to check back often for news, and will show that you're a busy, working professional.

About page

Your About page is the place to list out your qualifications. Listing your own music education, then your history of teaching and performing is a great place to start. Use a formatted title, followed by a longer description, or add columns to break up an About page into nicely readable chunks.

If you are making a music school website with several music teachers, you can place individual bios here in a 2 column layout. Add text on one side and a photo on the other.

Making use of some parent or student testimonials here is a nice touch, as well.

FAQ

A Frequently Asked Questions page is a great way to address concerns and also talk more about what you offer. You could describe the format of a typical lesson, and discuss your teaching style. As the last question, something like “How do I find out more information?” is a great way to insert your contact details here.

Pricing & Policies

Create a professional impression by using a page to outline your rates and teaching policies.

Some things to consider for this page:

  • How much do you charge for 30, 45, and 60 minute classes?
  • Do you offer extra services such as masterclasses, arranging, or accompaniment?
  • Do you offer make-up classes? Do you need 24 hours notice for a cancelled lesson?
  • Do you teach on holidays?
  • When does your music lesson year start, and finish?
  • How and when do you accept payment (per lesson, per month, per yearly session)?

Store & Payment

Using the no-commission store feature, you can add lesson packages and accept payment via Paypal or a credit card. This could include one-time lessons over Skype, special workshops, or costs for weekly lessons.

Some music teachers also sell their own compositions, pdf transcriptions, and lesson books using our digital file sales option. You can even add a discount code to offer special promotions, or place items on sale to clear out your stock at the end of the year.

Contact

A clear Contact page is a great way to encourage people to get in touch for more information about your music school or private studio. Think about including your phone number here for people who want to discuss details over the phone.

Include your physical address as well. You could even add an HTML feature to embed a Google Map of your location, making it clear where you are in the city.

Members-Only page

Got exclusive content to share with your students? Add a members-only page and encourage people to sign up for access (they are also added to your mailing list). Then add features like video tutorials or practice tips for your students to access.

Other features to add: Mailing list, Events Feature

Mailing List

Making use of a mailing list is a great way to keep in contact with your past, current, and interested students. You could add the email signup form to your Homepage as well as your Contact page.

A monthly newsletter with music school news is a nice way to keep your music studio top of mind for your customers. Word of mouth goes a long way when it comes to finding a great music teacher.

Events feature

If you perform regularly, or offer workshops or clinics, add an Events feature to your Homepage. It's a great way to make sure your students know you are actively performing and part of the musical community. It looks good to potential students, helps promote your shows, or can get more people into a class you're offering.

The integrated website

Many music teachers are also performers, or composers, and want to build a website that includes both. In this case, you can dedicate a page or two to teaching, then add features to create a condensed version of a music teacher website.

Be sure to check out these music teacher websites for some inspiration. We love the design and functionality, and the way they showcase what they offer. Thank you, music teachers!

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin [url=http://www.SEORankingLinks.com/]seo[/url]
