One of the UK's best known and most respected drum teachers, Tim Senior, has launched a new drum tutor franchise opportunity, following on from the success of his children's beginner series books 'Be a Drummer'. Tim says that this business opportunity for drummers worldwide has been thoroughly road tested to offer a fast track route to a successful career in music education. Here's the full details from him..
The STICK-AT-IT franchise offers an exciting opportunity for business minded, enthusiastic drummers to build a flexible teaching schedule within schools. Under the banner of a respected brand name, for an initial investment franchisees get the professionalism of a larger organisation whilst retaining their own personal touch and the freedom to teach around gigging commitments. Lesson preparation is minimal as each lesson is planned out for you, and set-up overheads are low with no need to purchase expensive premises or gear.
Starting a new business can be daunting. Being a franchisee offers access to already gained knowledge and experiences enabling a more direct route to success. Once part of the scheme, franchisees will benefit from on-going training and support and help with CRB applications. Membership will also help open doors as it brings credibility when approaching schools rather than offering your services as a freelancer.
Each STICK-AT-IT franchisee receives a substantial marketing pack, attractive trade terms on a range of highly profitable products and professionally produced, high specification teaching material. This strong, dynamic and flexible drum tuition learning system is subject to an on going development programme and it will prepare students for all recognised graded drum exams in the UK and worldwide and is designed by a drum teacher for drum teachers.
Top drummers are already talking about this new drum tuition package. Steve White (Paul Weller) stated, "I would happily recommend STICK-AT-IT as an invaluable guide to beginners and new drummers of all ages." Plus Rockschool, the leading accredited provider of rock and pop exams worldwide, have said "STICK-AT-IT provide an immense amount of support and musical opportunities for children in the South West, their tuition methods are perfect for beginner drummers – easy to understand, and more importantly fun!"
So if you are an experienced drummer looking to branch out in to teaching, have good communication and organisation skills, have the confidence to run your own business and be your own boss fill out the application form.
