karenabcde - just an update on printing costs. I just received the bid from an independent printer in town. Add $911 to the cost, which brings the total to roughly $2,400. I will need to get 8 teachers together to get this down to a reasonable per teacher cost. Don't know if this will happen.

However, I am happy to report that thanks to Piano World (I am truly grateful for this), my web page has moved up to #9 on the google list for "piano teachers olympia wa". Some of the crap that comes up is mind blowing. And I'm happier to report that I've had enough calls that I probably won't need to advertise to fill vacancies from grads.

By the way, I should add that I keep my lesson fee high, actually highest in town, so as to attract students who are really serious about learning piano.

Congrats, John!

How many students is a "full studio" for you?

Right now, drawing social security, I have to stay at 20 or below, or I'll forfeit my SS benefits. What a pain. After age 66, I can increase my studio back up. Before this happened, I kept my studio between 32 and 36 students.
