Optimizing Your Music Teacher Website on Search Engines

Lately, I have been receiving some music teacher inquiries on how to increase the number of their students. Some of them are asking for effective ways to advertise or market their music studios.

Although there are many ways to increase the popularity of a music teaching school, I think the best way is to develop a website and start optimizing it on search engines. This may sound so difficult but I have known some music teachers who have been very successful because of their well-managed website.

In creating a music teacher website, you may start using free blog portals like wordpress.com, weebly.com, webs.com or even blogger.com. Yet, it is still advisable to have your own website domain if you can afford it. It is also necessary to add some unique and relevant contents to gain trust from your readers.

After setting up your music teacher website, you may hire an SEO professional or company to initiate link building and social networking for your site. Again, this may be expensive but sure this can also be a good investment. I have been employing a search engine optimization expert for more than 3 years now and I’m glad to say that my music school business is constantly growing because of my website.

As a music teacher, I have limited knowledge and skills about computers and the internet. However, this never prevented me from utilizing technology and reaching out to more possible students. I always believe that it’s not wrong to seek help and professional assistance that’s why I hired a web designer and an SEO.

  1. Great advice. Thank you. I am delighted to have found this blog. There doesn’t seem to be many blogs dealing with piano teaching and education – perhaps you can direct me to some more? 🙂

    • Thanks for your visit. As a music teacher, myself, I wish to help other teachers improve their craft.

  2. Search engines, like Google, love to see fresh, relevant content and reward it with higher rankings. One of the best things you can do to optimize your site for SEO is to write frequent posts that add value to the audience you’re trying to target. And if you’re willing to spend a little time with it, you don’t really need to pay someone to do it for you. Sites like http://www.seomoz.org/learn-seo are full of useful info.

  3. There are free resources for music teachers, where they could list their profiles without paying a dime. For example: http://www.musicteachersdirectory.org/
