One of the reasons I make a website about piano lessons is that I love working in my pajamas, with a big cup of coffee and my laptop. Really!
I built my website using Solo Build It. It is an online "business builder" that can help anyone, anywhere build a web business online from scratch.
In my case that meant going from having great music teaching ideas rattling around in my head and jotted down in notebooks (not really reaching anyone), to being able to reach, teach and share music lessons with people all over the world.
The feedback and comments I get on my websites, are invaluable and really make my day.
A website is a lot of work, but when I get a profound "thank you" for my efforts, I shine like the sun! :)
When I started with my websites, I knew nothing at all about how to make websites or how to make an income from them.
Now I do. But not without the steady guidance of Solo Build It, as step by step tasks works best for me. My website is hard work, but I must say I am impressed with the results.
I Love to Teach, and I Love to Teach Music.
One of the things I like most about online music teaching, is that when you create a work sheet, or write about a topic, it's "forever". Not lost in a drawer somewhere.
Oh, If I had only known this earlier, when I worked as a music teacher in the schools. The sheer MASS of work sheets and helpful tools I developed (on paper) and then simply threw.... what a waste... :(
It's also fantastic to know that I can reach many more all over the world who want to learn about piano playing and music theory.
Am I making an income? Yes, it has started to "trickle" in. But the stats tell me that I am on the right course. My traffic is growing slowly but steadily.
Apart from the yearly cost of Solo Build It! (which
includes more than everything I need) I pay nothing except my time- which I
choose whenever I want.
I write only about topics that interest me, where I believe I have something of value to say, and whenever I feel like it. I love my full time job as a piano teacher as well- but who says you can't do both?
