You can now watch a live presentation of these sessions and more right in the comfort of your own home! Here, let me tell you about it:
The Best Stress-free Business Practices for the Music Teacher Webinar
If you didn’t watch the video, please do so! You’ll see what we’ll cover as well as hear what others who have taken these workshops think (workshops given at SMU, NCKP, NFMC conferences and more)!
Why would I want to attend this music teaching business webinar?
Will it be worth the investment?
Here’s what Sherry Todd, an attendee from these workshops says,
Wendy’s “Stress-free Business Practices” workshops are probably the single most important workshops a private piano teacher can take! Because of her workshop, I am now working less, enjoying teaching more, and not one of my parents has even uttered a murmur about fees or schedules. I am no longer tearing out my hair with monthly invoices and makeup lessons!
You will absolutely make up your investment, dollar for dollar, and then some!
Kristi Negri, another attendee had this to say,
I was skeptical at first, but now I work less, make more money, and am much less stressed!
What are the dates? What does it cost?
August 5th-6th (but you can watch it later too!) The live event is over, but you can register to watch the recordings through Sept. 6.
10:00-11:45 (I’ll try to be done by 11:30, but want to leave a little wiggle room for questions) Watch about 3.5 hours of piano teaching advice ANY time between now and September 5th, 2014.
A 2-morning webinar that you can watch from your computer, iPhone, iPad, or tablet! Watch it live or a recorded version for a limited time! Now you can get access to the recorded version of the webinar! Just email me
Price: Both days for $99!
if you want to view the recorded session. It will only be available to watch through September 5th!
Can I watch this on my tablet, iPad or iPhone?
Yes! This is a 2-day workshop which you can view on a computer, iPad, iPhone, tablet, and even call in and listen on your phone! I have tried out 4 different webinar platforms and have purchased the one that is easiest for you to use and will give you the best experience!
I can’t make it for both days. Can I watch a recording?
Yes! We will be recording the webinar and you can watch it for a limited time at a later date. Anyone who registers will get information on how to watch the recording when it is available.
I’ve never done a webinar before and I’m not tech savvy! Is it easy to do?
Yes, it’s very simple and you’ll get instructions with your personal link right after you register. You’ll get reminders in your email the day before and the hour before, so all you have to do is click the link, download any software required (they make it easy) and you’re in! Be sure to check your spam or junk email folder if you don’t see an email from “gototraining” after you register. Move it to your inbox so that future emails won’t get lost.
I have a few questions!
By all means email me or call me (913) 890-3531. Because I have a house of noisy children (I’m grateful for them), sometimes I miss calls and will need to call you back, so email is best. But don’t hesitate to call if you still have questions!
What’s the schedule?
Here are the specific things we will cover on these days:
Tuesday August 5th, 10:00-11:45 CST

Arm yourself with true narratives that will give you the courage to follow through in implementing those decisions.
