Today, I’m going to introduce you to a musician who makes six-figures teaching music online. But there’s more to this story than meets the eye. And I’m always skeptical of stuff that sounds “get rich quick”, especially online. It’s a lot of hard work.
Everyday creative people are told that music is risky. In a world of starving artists, we need a backup plan. Tragically, many creatives are told a degree from an art or music school is the solution.
After investing years of their life and thousands of dollars, they finally graduate and learn the truth:
A music “degree” isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on (with rare exception).
That’s where today’s guest comes in.
After graduating from college and unable to make ends meet, Brent Vaartstra started his own music business. Without a clue, he crafted new and exciting ways to increase is income as a musician. Brent now earns six-figures teaching music online at learnjazzstandards.com.
In today’s episode, Brent is going to tell us how he does it. If you’re looking for ways to earn additional income teaching music, you’re going to love this episode. Let’s rock!
