Printables, Studio Business

3 New Printables and 5 Others Updated!

To prepare for the new teaching year, I’ve been updating a plethera of my studio documents!  I finally have them all updated here online too on the Printables > Studio Business page.  If you are interested in using any of them, feel free.

The ones that are Microsoft Word documents can easily be edited to your personal needs.  On the pdf documents, I’ve left room on the top for you to print your own student name or logo if desired (just print it twice – once as is, and then run the sheet through the printer again this time adding your own personal touch).  Enjoy!

  • New! Record of Payments Due / Received – I use this to record checks and cash when I receive them from students/parents.  You can also use it to mark down books/sheet music that you purchase for students, so you can keep track of what has and hasn’t been paid for yet.
  • New! Student Scheduling Preferences – This 2-page document includes an empty scheduling table that allows students/parents to fill in their schedule and indicated their top 5 choices for lesson times, and to X out any times that will not work.  The first page is for the school year schedule and the second page is for the summer schedule.  This file is a Microsoft Word (docx) file, so it can be suitably edited to your needs.  There is room at the top of each page for your studio name or logo.
  • New! Studio Policies & Procedures (Sample) – This Microsoft Word (docx) file is a editable sample Studio Policies & Procedures.  If you are making your studio policies for the first time or are looking for ideas for adjusting your current policies, this may help you get started.
  • Updated! Record of Lesson Attendance & Payment – This 3-page document has been updated for the 2011-2012 year.  (see image at right for a preview)
  • Updated! Record of Student Achievements – This printable has been slightly updated in format.
  • Updated! First Lesson: Student Information Form – This printable has been updated to include a section for asking permission to use photos/videos of the student.  It is also now more suitable for using with both children and adult students.
  • Updated! First Lesson: Interview with Beginner Student – This printable has been updated in both format and content to reflect my evolving teaching style.  🙂
  • Updated! First Lesson: Interview with Transfer Student – Same as above.

  1. This is awesome! Thanks for sharing your music studio business forms!. I have been trying to start a website that offers similar free printables for music teachers, and your forms gave me some great ideas for my site.

    One form that I had that I noticed wasn’t on your list is a “student assignment sheet”. I have an example here if you’re interested: If you want a copy of the word version, let me know and I’d be glad to share.


    1. Thanks, Theresa! I’m not much of an assignment sheet person…I prefer journal-sized, blank notebooks. But I’m so glad you shared your link — I’m sure others can benefit from what you are sharing!

  2. Hello~
    Thank you for sharing the wonderful informations. I couldn’t read or download your documents. It just shows the blank page. Will you please check it? I would love to look at those. Thank you!



  3. Hi Joy, I’ve taken your idea about schedule preferences, but have you come across an online site or app for entering all of these scheduling wish lists that comes up with an optimal schedule for the most people? Just curious…

    1. I’ve heard of, which helps multiple people be able to find a time that works for everyone for an appointment. But, of course, making a schedule for a variety of appointments like piano lessons is a little bit different — but it still might prove helpful if everyone could enter their availability digitally. I haven’t tried it, but it may be worth checking out!

      There are also other services (such as and that allow people to schedule appointments with you online, first-come-first serve. The problem with this approach is that it doesn’t allow you the control to create a schedule that works the best for the most people.

      If I hear of any other online service that would work well for scheduling piano lessons, I’ll be sure to blog about it! 🙂

  4. Joy!
    Thank you for posting the studio business templates! Your resources help me think of important ideas to include in my studio policy. I am just starting out, and I am wanting to raise my prices. I am thinking of raising my prices by 10%. Is that too little or too much to put on my parents?

    Thank you so much for your blog, it helps new teachers like me get inspired and energized!

  5. Thank you so much for all of the resources. I’m a full time band director/music teacher and teach piano in my “free time” and your resources are invaluable to me! I was wondering if you have updated your “Record of Lesson Attendance & Payment” sheet for 2013-14? I’ve found it to be a quick “at-a-glance” check sheet. Forgive me if it’s here and I just haven’t located it.

  6. Thanks for sharing your forms and business ideas. Do you have an editable calendar you use in your studio that maybe I’m not finding here? I am probably just missing it 🙂
