Ideas for children focused music businesses

Music businesses that are focused on instructing children can be very lucrative. Music instructors who have instruments available at their location are in demand. Especially for those instruments that are either heavy, large or loud. Having the child student come to our location is a great time saver since we will not be hampered by the issues of travel. An additional source of income can be to sell the actual musical instruments that we offer to instruct.
