Is Instagram for Piano Teachers? Yes, here's why!


Confession: I'm a piano teacher and blogger who feels like she's always behind when it comes to social media.

Now that I've just gotten the hang of Facebook and even connected my Twitter account to it, Instagram has taken over! How is a piano teacher to keep up? Tell me I'm not alone for thinking like this!

And, for that matter, is it important for piano teachers to stay with the latest trend in social media?


Part of me wants to say NO! I'm not a millennial so I shouldn't try to be one. But, the other part of me knows that if I want to connect with potential blog readers, students and clients who are younger than me (I'm still 29 at heart!), I need to become Instagram savvy. Follow me here as I learn the ropes!

Thankfully, I have a wonderful friend named Audra who is a corporate sales-woman turned health advocate, wife, mother to 3, small-business owner and yes, a millennial. Audra continually inspires me as she likes to dream big. She even created her own online course called “Instagram for MLM Success”.

For the record, just a few short years ago, Audra didn’t even have an Instagram account. Her road to becoming an Instagram expert has been rough and with her help, she assures me that my Instagram journey (and yours) doesn’t have to be the same. Whewhoo!

One of the basics to learn when using Instagram is how to use the sign that looks like a sharp sign (#) and the words that follow it.

It's called a hashtag.

Yes, they look like sharp signs but everyone born after 2007 knows them as hashtags!

Sign up below for Audra's FREE list of over a 100 hashtags for piano teachers. Trust me...the list will soon become extremely valuable to you as you post photos and stories on Instagram.


Of course, the list won't do you any good unless you learn how to use hashtags. So, Audra agreed to an interview with me which I recorded as a video. In the video interview she'll explain why hashtags are important and how they can help piano teachers like you get more students.

Here’s a link to the post featuring the video

Among other things, Audra and I cover:

  • What it's like being a millennial parent in search of a piano/music teacher

  • Unique ways to connect with them

  • How to attract their kiddos as students

  • And, more importantly retain their kiddos as students.

Have more questions for Audra? Include them in the comments below and I'll make sure to let her know.

Don't miss your chance to learn how Instagram can help you grow your business!
