Studio Policy Workshop

Studio teachers have different ideas on how to operate their own studios.  However, all of us would like to have a studio working like a well-oiled machine: payments received on time, respectful relationship between parents, teacher, and students, and no unpleasant surprises when it comes to exams, auditions or competitions.

The Studio Policy Workshop provides ideas and examples of strong, well-working policies, as well as ways to implement them.

Testimonials for this Workshop

The workshop was informative, interesting and interactive. Teachers were given the opportunity to ask questions to the presenters. Many good ideas on how to operate our own studios were given, which greatly helped us in making up our policies.

The course gave me great examples towards reforming my own T&Cs in a way that now suits my personality and studio workings much better. I had some big decisions I needed to make and enforce: it is reducing stress already, and effecting better respect.
