Helping Music Teachers Build Online Income Streams

Launch a successful online business to supplement your music teaching income.

Transform your approach to making money as a music teacher

Ever thought of creating something to sell online?

If you're like many teachers, you already have some awesome arrangements, compositions, videos and lesson/teaching resources that you use with your students.

What if you could share these with other teachers AND bring in some extra money on the side?

Teachers are uniquely skilled at creating amazing lessons and learning resources, but we're not very good at marketing!

In Music Teacher Startup, I'll walk you step-by-step through the entire process of designing, building, marketing and launching a great online product or service, whether you already have something to sell or not.

In the Evolution Membership mastermind meetings you get to connect with a community of 'starters,' get unstuck, have your questions answered, and stay accountable.

It's designed for music teachers by a music teacher and I can't wait to help you get started.

Can you afford the sacrifices you are making?

Everyday around the world, independent music teachers just like you are making huge sacrifices in order to teach their students.

Because you teach students after school and on weekends - during the hours most families are having fun and eating dinner together - you miss out on time spent with your own children, family, spouse and friends.

It’s a sacrifice that most of us make everyday and that can easily lead to feelings of guilt and even shame for music teachers - particularly those with their own children.

And those feelings can easily niggle away at us and, for some teachers, even spell the end of their teaching careers.

Compounding these feelings is the struggle we face making enough money to sustain a comfortable living when we're trading time for money and often failing to charge what we're worth.

But what if you could build an alternate income stream that generated enough dollars to allow you to scale back your teaching hours?

What if you could spend more time with your family by creating an online business that takes care of some of your income?

What if you could tap into the mind of a music teacher who’s done it all before and now runs a successful online business that generates enough income to teach only those students and those times that he feels truly passionate about?

Hi, I'm Tim Topham.

I’m a music teacher and online entrepreneur, and back in 2014, I was in a similar situation.

I was burnt-out and struggling as a music teacher. I worked part time in the classroom, and I taught from home, after school and on weekends.

Like many music teachers, I had a portfolio of exhausting jobs required to keep the lights on, many of which required my focus after school hours when all the “normal” people were finishing their work days.

Life was stressful.

Four years earlier, in 2010, I’d started a blog and YouTube channel in order to share some of my ideas about piano teaching.

As a blogger, I became totally addicted to the many online business podcasts that shared stories of regular people starting simple online businesses and turning them into income-generating machines.

And it got me thinking...

What if the blog I’d started back in 2010 could be the ticket to a much simpler, more comfortable life where my income wasn’t determined by how many hours I could teach piano?

What if I started an online business?

At the end of 2014, I developed and released my first online course for piano teachers called PianoFlix: How to Teach Pop Piano.

This was an 8-module online course designed to take classically-trained teachers step-by-step through the progress of teaching students songs that they wanted to learn.

It took me 3 months to record, edit, upload and launch. By the time I closed the doors on the course two years later, I’d made $40,000.

The skills I learnt building and promoting that course, and the success it had, enabled me to create and launch my Inner Circle piano teachers’ membership site.

This site now has over 1000 members in more than 20 countries, allowing me to influence, support and guide teachers all around the world.

Create income independent of your teaching

In the last few years, I’ve had more and more teachers come to me and ask:

“How did you sell your course? How did you build your membership?” and

“I’ve got this cool idea - how should I launch it?”...

So it’s time to give back.

How can I share the skills I’ve learnt building my business in order to support teachers like you, to do the same thing?

And that’s what the Evolution Membership is all about: helping you create new income streams for your studio through offering online products and services.

Music Teacher Startup will take you step-by-step through the entire process of designing, creating, marketing and launching an online product or service from start to finish - even if you’ve never done this before.

Live feedback and coaching at the twice monthly Evolution Mastermind Meetings will keep you accountable, help you get 'unstuck' and support your progress.

Whether you’ve already created an online product or service and have been struggling to get the marketing right or whether this is a completely new opportunity for you and you have no idea where to start, Evolution has you covered.
