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 licensed and certified to teach the Let’s Play Music: PRESTO curriculum, with its materials, logos, and trademarks. Within certain parameters, you run your studio as it suits you.

Potential Income

Group lessons greatly increase your earnings potential from private lessons. The three factors involved in projecting your income are:

1. Tuition amount: Company minimum is $400/semester ($100/month) though many teachers charge more.

2. Class size: Recommended class size is 3–4 students. 

3. Number of classes:  sRecommended number of classes is 4 to start off.

A typical teacher whose students pay $400 per semester tuition ($100 per month) and teaches 4 classes per week with 4 families in each class will earn $1600/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 5 sets of 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 $99/month for two years with 0% financing.​

Teacher Support Fee: Based on student enrollment. The fee is $8 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 an audio speaker, gathering drum, and rhythm instruments, a total of about $150-$200. You'll also need a full size keyboard or piano for each student (about $500-600 each)

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 60 minutes long and you can expect to spend the same amount of time preparing for your classes.

The two year curriculum is taught in four 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 two-year curriculum.

Teaching Facility

Your studio space must be large enough to accommodate at least 3 students and their keyboards plus a small floor area for teaching. Many teachers are able to teach in their home in a family room or den space.

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 a teaching out of your home.

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