April 15th Team Meeting

The goal of the April 15th team meeting:

  1. Apply three new methodologies to each of the four ideas generated on April 7th.
  2. What would the end user think?
  3. Narrow down the original four ideas to three ideas

April 15th team meeting notes:

We narrowed down the original four ideas to three ideas.  We decided to incorporate “using a rental interface for musical instruments” into the the online instruction and membership ideas.

The remaining three ideas and the methodologies to be applied this week are:

  • Anna S.: all services and instruction provided completely online … methodologies: Dragonfly Effect & Think Inside the Box
  • Keith: all services and instruction provided completely online … methodologies: Kano Model & Dragonfly Effect
  • Stephen: using a membership concept … methodologies: Kano Model & 4 C’s of Marketing
  • Anna A.: partnering with inner-city schools and receiving some level of non-profit status … methodologies: Think Inside the Box & 4 C’s of Marketing

Other ideas that came up during the April 15th meeting:

  • Allow students to track their progress and provide a reward when goals are met or competencies are attained
  • Post videos, mashups, collaborations, etc. to show accomplishments to friends and family
  • Help students find practice and collaboration partners, perhaps using colors to show your skill level (black belt) (online platform)
  • schedule your lesson when you are ready/feel prepared
  • Use an intake form to help students decide which instrument, timing and end goals, tolerance for improvement curve, initial skill level, etc.
  • Determine a target segment: 15-25 years old seems good
  • Googlehangouts is not the best for music lessons.  Try FaceTime on the computer or Googlehangouts for the visual and FaceTime for the audio only
  • Paypal is not the best option for payments.  Try Cash.
