Build Your Future, One Note at a Time
with a music education franchise for young children
Your Chance to Leverage Market Growth Trends.
Did you know? Music can positively shape the rest of a child’s life. Studies show musical experiences in a young child’s life can:
- Accelerate brain development
- Enhance language acquisition and reading skills
- Increase a child’s ability to focus
- Lead to improved learning later in life4
Recent studies have shown that with growing numbers of parents working outside the home, most children under five years old receive child care from someone other than a parent. Almost one-quarter (23.4%) of children under the age of five are in some form of organized child care arrangement, including day care centers, nurseries, and preschools.1 So it’s no surprise that the child day care market rakes in $48 Billion in revenues on an annual basis.2
On top of that, since the end of the Great Recession, there has been an uptick in parents outsourcing child-related duties (e.g., child care, coaching, and tutoring). In fact, the parental outsourcing industry recently reached nearly $55 billion – with ample opportunity for small businesses and entrepreneurs.3
My Music Workshop capitalizes on these trends and responds to the increasing demand for quality preschool supplemental education programs. You can provide valuable musical educational to the growing number of children in preschool settings, meet parents’ demand for educational services they seek for their children – and ultimately position your business for sustained growth.
I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.

Do I need to actively work in the business to be a franchisee?
We are looking for franchise candidates who will be actively involved in their businesses, often taking on the role of the lead instructor in early phases of growth. (Appropriate certification is required for all instructors.) If you choose not to act as the lead instructor, we require you to hire a lead instructor who is approved by us and will receive training alongside you in all aspects of building and running the business.
What is provided as part of the My Music Workshop program?
We have used years of experience in the classroom teaching music to preschoolers to create a truly unique, effective and fun curriculum that focuses on our Listen, Learn, Play!® method. It includes more than seven illustrated and interactive music books covering over 350 pages that teachers use in classes to engage them in their early years of music education. The curriculum also comes with original songs, music and audio, guidance for teachers and more.

How much will the My Music Workshop program investment cost me?
The total initial investment necessary to start your My Music Workshop franchise ranges from $31,104 to $48,500. The range reflects things like whether you would need to build out a home office, purchase a vehicle, computer and other necessities to run your business. If you already have many of these things you might expect your investment to be on the lower part of the range. These numbers include an initial franchise fee of $22,500. As with any new venture, it’s important to have adequate capital to fund your initial business growth stages.
Is financing available?
We do not provide direct financing to franchisees, but we may refer financing sources on a case by case basis.
Are there ongoing fees to pay?
We charge a royalty fee equal to one student tuition per class at each campus. Additional classes held at the same campus on the same day are charged ½ of one students tuition. For other revenue generating aspects of the business a royalty of 8% of net revenues is charged. These fees allow us to fund our ongoing support services and the continued development of music curricula, marketing tools, training programs, and more.
Are there any advertising fees?
While there is no set requirement for local marketing expenditures, we will provide ample guidance on printing and distributing flyers and other collateral materials each month to local schools and centers. To aid in these efforts, franchise owners will contribute up to $150 per month into our system marketing fund, which will be used to generate marketing strategies and campaigns, and to develop local marketing materials used to promote the My Music Workshop brand. This fee is currently $100 per month.
