Review:


"Terrific resource: a gold mine of practical tips, insights, and checklists, with a wealth of real-world examples and advice you won't find elsewhere-an invaluable treasure for any independent music teacher!" --Angela Myles Beeching, author of Beyond Talent: Creating a Successful Career in Music


"This unprecedented page-turner is THE BIBLE for any present or future savvy music teacher. David Cutler's gripping and empowering approach will keep you glued to the end." --Leila Viss, pianist and studio teacher, leilaviss.com


"Practical, inspirational, and incredibly thorough, The Savvy Music Teacher is a book that no independent music teacher should be without! --Brandon Pearce, Founder, Music Teacher's Helper musicteachershelper.com


"Thank you to David Cutler for creating the "Ben Franklin's Almanac" for independent music teachers, with an engaging combination of practical information and street-smart advice." --Sam Pilafian, tubist, author, The Breathing Gym


"David Cutler hits another musical home run with The Savvy Music Teacher! Presented with infectious prose that illuminates and inspires in equal parts, SMT hits literally every mark for both aspiring and veteran pedagogues. The blueprints, disseminations of complex "real life" data made charmingly accessible, interviews with countless successful educators, and the author's own rich experience as a world-class performer, teacher, and entrepreneur should be required reading for every musician." --John W. Parks IV, percussionist, Associate Professor of Percussion, The Florida State University


"How refreshing to read a book that demonstrates how financial success and passionate dedication to a student's success are not mutually exclusive, but are in fact inexorably intertwined! David Cutler's The Savvy Music Teacher discusses ways educators can stay true to their core values and, at the same time, build a viable, sustainable business." --Nina Perlove, flutist, The Internet Flutist, realfluteproject.com


"As a brand new "SMT," The Savvy Music Teacher helped me pave the way to a solid start-up studio. With countless blueprints, artistic initiatives, and financial models, this book has become one of my most valuable resources." --Estela Aragon, trumpeter, Trumpeter and founder, MusicFit Academy, musicfitacademy.com


"This book is an enormous resource for teachers and administrators. Emboldened by the information within, teachers may ascend to "Savvy" early in their careers rather than climbing a slow learning curve over the course of time. If teachers want to be respected as professionals they must continue to grow and to present themselves professionally." --Ronda Cole, violinist, Suzuki Association of the Americas, Teacher Trainer


"If success leaves clues, then David Cutler leaves footprints for readers to follow in pursuit of their own goals and dreams. Any musician committed to using the tools provided in The Savvy Music Teacher is sure to make a successful living teaching music." --Mike McAdam, guitarist, School Director, North Main Music, author, The Private Guitar Studio Handbook,
northmainmusic.com


"David Cutler provides answers and solutions sorely needed by teachers, while encouraging us to value ourselves and the work we do. Are you worth it or not? Take the first step by saying "yes" and read this book!" --Christian Howes, jazz violinist, perrformer/educator/producer, christianhowes.com


"[A] must read for musicians seeking advice on financial planning...Cutler offers practical and realistic advice about making a living in the field. Above and beyond that, he offers valuable examples of how others have done it...Cutler's books provide outstanding advice and insight into having a savvy business sense while maintaining one's integrity as a performing and teaching musician."--The Flutist Quarterly

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In our era of financial uncertainty and disruptive technological change, the music industry is in crisis. One career path that holds great promise, however, is independent music teaching. For a host of reasons, demand exists in every corner, providing one of the most stable, promising career options available to musicians regardless of instrument, genre, or background - at least, in the hands of a savvy music teacher. In this book, author David Cutler offers hands-on advice for creating a music career that is meaningful, artistically fulfilling, and financially self-supporting. The book s overriding goal is to ensure a steady income for its reader and to give the reader tools to use that income to provide financial independence. Cutler walks the reader through the process of setting up a profitable and sustainable career plan, and then through the practical aspects of getting out of debt, spending responsibly, investing, and saving for retirement. Cutler also sheds light on the logistics of running a teaching studio, providing helpful documentation and tips for everything from bookkeeping to time management. Lastly and most importantly, Cutler explores situations for increasing a teacher s impact. Rather than simply creating wealthy teachers, the overriding goal of their book is to cultivate leaders who add significant value to society through their teaching. A must-read for private music teachers of all levels, both beginning and those with established studios, as well as the music performance graduates who so often become private studio teachers, The Savvy Music Teacher provides practical advice in down-to-earth language that includes real-life experiences from successful teacher-entrepreneurs, a focus on large-scale income streams not usually covered in books for studio teachers, and sample documents (including contracts and marketing materials) on the book s comprehensive companion website.
