1. Get points, get prizes!
To go with the points, we bought a bunch of prizes (and lugged them back from Taiwan) to be redeemed with various number of points.
(I'll spare you the details of how we came up with what each prize costs--if you really wanna know, ask me in the comments)
2. Music bags for all the students
We bought THIS for all the students. No more dropping books & missing covers! And it looks nice, if I do say so myself.
And yes, we're giving them to all the kids for free :)
3. Little kids welcomed (and I mean little)
We're about a month into the private piano group lessons now and the kids are loving it!
4. Easier tuition payments
Knowing how much I love earning miles and cashback on my credit cards (it's like getting 2% off on everything!), I've been toying with the idea of accepting credit cards for tuition payments.
And now I am! While it does mean I get less of the tuition, I think it's a small price to pay for the convenience and the benefits for the parents in my studio.
(And thank you Amazon for undercutting all your competitors on fees!)
5. Give, give, give!
This was probably the best and coolest thing we did over the summer.
Summer lessons were given as a gift and tuition was completely voluntary. At the end, whatever we raised from the donated tuition amount we gave 50% of it to the Academy of Music for the Blind.
I was extremely thrilled with the Summer Giving results we achieved and I hope to do something similar again next summer!
(Bonus): Extra goodie for the next blog post
There is one more thing we just implemented into the studio this past Monday, but I'm saving it for the next blog post because this one's getting long and 5's a good number to end with ;)
Also, I wanted to explain everything that went into creating it!
Brag about your studio!
