Musician FAQ


What is Lesson Squad?

As a musician or educator, you recommend gear to students, friends and fans. Lesson Squad's platform lets you more elegantly make those recommendations and get paid when people buy. Moreover, we provide the tools you need to have an online presence, get new students, and manage your business.

How does it work?

Every musician gets their own Lesson Squad page to help grow their online presence.

Your Lesson Squad page showcases the instruments & accessories you typically recommend to students, friends and fans. When someone buys through your page, you keep 5%.

It also gives students a way to send you a message or pay for a lesson so you can grow you teaching business.

Here is just one example of a musician using Lesson Squad.

Do I need to know how to build websites to use Lesson Squad?

How do I setup my Lesson Squad page for the first time?

Once your application has been accepted, you can use this setup tool to get up and running. All you need is a short bio, profile pic, and ideas on what products you'd like to recommend.

How much does Lesson Squad cost?

Lesson Squad is free for musicians and music educators. We've partnered with retailers and manufacturers so you don't have to pay.

When someone buys a product through your site, you keep 5%. If you choose to also receive payments from students for lessons, you keep 90%.

When do I get paid?

When any product is sold on your site, you receive an email letting you know within 7 days. You then receive a check for 5% within 60 days or earlier.

If a student pays you for a lesson, their payment is automatically deposited into your bank account within 7 days.

How can I offer lessons through Lesson Squad? Can they be online?

Your site contains a "Book Now" button that allows potential new students to send you a message. Once you receive the message, you can work out an arrangement with the student directly. If you'd like to offer online lessons, we suggest you use any common video-call platform such as FaceTime, Skype, or Google Hangouts. If you'd like students to be able to pay you through your Lesson Squad page, please send an email to and we'll help you set this up.

How do I get more visibility for my page?

As students, friends and fans ask you for recommendations, feel free to email or text them a link to your Lesson Squad page. Many musicians also share a link to their page on social media. We are happy to share additional techniques that have helped our top musicians get visibility. To learn more, simply ask your Lesson Squad representative or email us at
