All the Details

We are happy to share with you the information that will help you decide if Let’s Play Music is the right fit for you.


This is a business opportunity in which you will become certified to teach the Let’s Play Music curriculum, with its materials, logos, and trademarks. Within certain parameters, you run your studio as it suits you.

Potential Income

Group lessons and opportunities to teach during the day to pre-school aged children greatly increase your earnings potential from private lessons. The three factors involved in projecting your income are:

1. Tuition Amount: Company minimum is $60/month for 1st Year, $70/month for 2nd Year, and $80/month for 3rd Year.

2. Class Size: Suggested class size: 6-8 students per class.

3. Number of Classes: Recommended number of classes is 3-4 to start off.

A typical teacher whose students pay $280 per semester tuition ($70 per month) and teaches 4 classes per week with seven children in each class will earn about $1960/month.

Licensing Fee

Training Seminars: Online Preliminary training, and an engaging all-day Curriculum Seminar that will train you in the methods of Presto and in building a successful business.

Ongoing Support and Mentoring: You will have personal contact with our expert mentoring team, certification guidance, an office staff to assist you and your students, and access to our INFO House online information system.

Teaching Materials: Teacher’s Manual, Lesson Plans, Visual Aids, Teacher Tools (Magnetic Staff Board, Vinyl Floor Staff, and Tone Bells), teacher T-shirt, and a teacher copy of all Student Materials.

Business and Marketing Tools: Brochures, forms, marketing content, website storefront, online student management system and more are all yours to assist you in building a thriving studio.

Your licensing fee includes the following services:

Financial Obligation

Licensing Fee: $2500 is the fee you pay to gain the rights to use the curriculum. This is a one time fee though you may pay $69/month for three years with 0% financing.

Teacher Support Fee: Based on student enrollment. The fee is $7 per student per teaching month. This gives you personal access to our skilled mentoring teams, our Lets Play Music app, website enrollment, office and administrative support, and ongoing training meetings.

Legal Requirements: Complete a one-time FBI background check. Cost varies by location but the entire process is normally under $50. Teachers are required to have liability insurance for their studios. You can find your own insurance, or we can provide references for approximately $18–25/month depending on your state.

Miscellaneous Materials (not provided by Let's Play Music): Additional studio set-up costs include  instruments, equipment, and other supplies needed but not provided by Let’s Play Music.

1st Year: An autoharp - approximately $250-$350. You will also need a tambourine, miscellaneous small toys and/or puppets, and a sound system (CD player, iPod station, etc.). You can expect to spend a total of about $350-$400 in additional expenses to get your studio up and running.

2nd Year: Keyboards with full-size keys, along with stools and keyboard stands/tables for each child to use in class. Adequate keyboards are $50-90 each. (Sources will be provided.)

3rd Year: Composition software. Free versions are available, but we suggest the Finale Songwriter, Sibelius or comparable software.

Time Commitment

Once you begin teaching, you can expect to spend 1-2 hours per week executing the tasks of running your business: i.e. bookkeeping, recruiting, keeping up to date on policies, etc.

Class periods are 45-55 minutes long and you can expect to spend the same amount of time preparing for your classes.

You can expect to spend 3-4 hours in the certification process.

The 3-year curriculum is taught in six sequential semesters, each 15 weeks long. Most teachers align classes with the local school schedule. Consistency in weekly lessons is essential so teachers must commit to teaching classes and completing the 3-year curriculum.

Teaching Facility

Your Let’s Play Music studio space must be large enough to accommodate at least 5 students and a parent/caregiver in an active class. The curriculum is specifically structured to occur in two separate areas, an active area, and a listening area. Many Let’s Play Music teachers are able to teach in their own homes in a large family room, game room, or a converted garage. The ideal teaching space is approximately 20x20 feet (or about the size of a 2-car garage).


If your home is in a neighborhood or municipality that restricts home-based businesses, you may want to check with your local authorities to determine the viability of teaching out of your home.

If you teach in a commercial facility, you will charge slightly higher tuition to offset overhead expenses.
