I think of TopMusic as the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
If you’re exhausted on Sunday because you’ve taught another 60+ hour week and tried to keep up with everything you’ve had to do, you’re going to burn out. That’s the worst thing for you… and your students.
As music teachers, we’ve also got to organise a complex schedule, manage cancellations, invoice parents, make sure we get paid and somehow find the time for marketing to new students. Most of us spent years honing our musical skills, but received very little business or teaching training. We “fell into” teaching when we were young and never really set ourselves up as a business.
Imagine: You teach the hours you want, enjoy family dinner, AND smile when you see your bottom line.
Since 2016, TopMusicPro has helped hundreds of music teachers re-connect with today’s busy, overscheduled music students. We provide the resources, guidance and expertise to create more meaningful music lessons.
Whether you are a new teacher wanting to start a private teaching studio, or a teaching veteran looking to refresh your approach, TopMusicPro membership is the key to unlock all the creative teaching tools, business advice and support you need to become a more confident teacher and savvy business owner.
I think of TopMusic as the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
TopMusicPro is definitely worth the investment whether you make it back in increased students or you just become a better musician.
The biggest thing I have gotten out of TopMusicPro is the affirmation that I am on the right track.
When I started my studio, I was completely on my own. And now, I’ve expanded my studio and have 130 students and 8 teachers!
My biggest win with TopMusicPro has been increased student retention and increased income.
Your TopMusicPro membership gives you access to our growing library of over 50 comprehensive step-by-step video training courses.
Topics span everything from teaching technique to composing and how to teach pop music. Our business courses will get you started on marketing, building an amazing website all the way to teaching group lessons, building a music academy and beyond!

If you're one of my blog readers, video watchers or podcast listeners, then you're probably a perfect fit for TopMusicPro. However, just in case, scroll back to the section above called "Is TopMusicPro right for you?" to check.
It’s important to view your TopMusicPro membership as a business investment, rather than a personal expense.
If you’d like to grow your student numbers and create a sustainable business, then investing in TopMusicPro will help you achieve that goal much faster than working on your own.
In addition, because this is a business investment, you should aim to cover your membership from your studio admin fees and deduct it from your business account.
For example, let's say you teach 30 students. If you charge an admin fee of just $15 per student for the year, you've easily covered the cost of your membership. This is how many members invest in their business without it coming out of their own ‘back pocket’.
Try and consider your subscription as part of a bigger picture growth strategy for you and your studio. Oh and remember, it's likely to be a tax deductible business expense (depending on your jurisdiction).
We find there are three big problems with Facebook groups: it’s too easy to get distracted, there’s too much complaining and it’s really difficult to search.
TopMusicPro's exclusive forums are designed around your needs and development. Without the noise of Facebook and its cat videos and whingers, you can get straight to work, asking the questions you need and getting responses from around the world.
You can easily search anything on the site (including all discussions) using a dedicated search bar at the top of every page.
Only members and our invited TMP Expert Teachers are allowed to use the forums, so you get the best possible answers from the most experienced teachers, without all the distractions and complications. And you can access it all from your very own dedicated app.
Yes. When you become a member, you get access to everything that's relevant to the tier you signed up for. The only thing that isn't there is the stuff we're still creating :)
By sharing your own ideas and helping other teachers, you'll develop and grow as a teacher. Regardless of how experienced we are, there are always new things to learn and try and being inside TopMusicPro is the BEST way to keep on top of new developments in our industry.
Lots of our members have big studios, contracted teachers and even multiple locations and they choose to continue their membership to pass on their knowledge to other teachers.
New content is added regularly as we continue to develop new courses, lesson plans and downloads. In addition, all the items uploaded by members and our TopMusicPro Experts are freely available to use in your own teaching. That's why the forums are such a great place for sharing ideas.
We’ll email you a weekly update of new releases, features, upgrades, top discussions and courses so you can get an overview of what’s been happening, even if you’ve been busy. We also do a monthly member update sharing some of the bigger feature releases and upcoming dates for your calendar.
Members see the best returns by committing a small amount of time each week to pop into the forums, share their thoughts, ask questions and generally get involved.
And remember that if you charge around $US40-60 per lesson, then the cost of TopMusicPro Membership is less than the income from just one of your lessons each month. Can you afford not to be involved?
TopMusicPro is 100% online. There is no mailed information, however from time to time we do like to surprise our members, so you never know!
If you decide that membership isn't right for you, you have 30 days in which to cancel according to my 100% money-back guarantee.
If you do decide to cancel, while we'll be very sad to see you go, you'll be able to do this yourself with a few mouse clicks through your "My Account" page.
Our first tier, the Lite tier, is great for teachers who are looking specifically for quality sheet music, a fun magazine to read and access to our previous webinars. It does NOT include any of our courses, lesson plans, or other academy downloads, however.
Most teachers will get the best value from a Studio membership. This will give you access to pretty much everything that TopMusicPro has to offer - it includes everything from the Lite offer, PLUS our courses, repertoire detective, our entire academy stuffed full of workshops, lesson plans, live teaching, webinars, downloads, cheat sheets, quick wins and so on. You will also get access to our very cool discounts on Musicnotes and Tonebase.
If you are a 'next-level' teacher, looking to expand your business by opening a music academy or by branching out into other areas of business, our evolution membership will be the perfect match for you. It includes the popular Music Teacher Startup Course, coaching options and higher-level marketing courses that will accelerate your new business ventures.
