OffBeat Lessons PotentialMarket Size•  Starting point: §  Music Teachers National Association lists 22,000 members •  http://www.mtna.org/about-mtna/ §  Conservatory students: ~40,000 students-->if 20% teach, 8000 potential teachers §  Total: 30,000 teachers o  If Narrathon has 10% market share: 3,000 teachers §  Assumptions: •  On average each teacher finds 2 students from Narrathon, avg. lesson cost: $60 and students take lessons 50 weeks / year o  Narrathon generates $18,000,000 total extra income for these teachers per year o  Assume Narrathon charges 5% commission, total revenue = $900,000 / year •  Half of them subscribe to bill pay feature and half to scheduler o  Assume each feature costs $60 / month
  • 6. OffBeat LessonsWhat We Did:We interviewed teachers, potential teachers, students, and parentsWhat We Learned:• Repeatedly -- teachers saying they would try to "cheat" such a system, avoid paying for student referrals• Beginning students didnt know what they needed in a teacher, didnt think premium matching was worth paying for• Experienced students have solid word-of-mouth and personal networksInsights: Small market, difficult to convince people to pay, most people think word of mouth is "good enough"
  • 7. PIVOT 1Decided to offer a platform for virtual lessons in addition to our in-person lesson "matching service"Reasoning:• Access to teachers outside of local area• Convenience• Access to and availability of teachers for obscure / non- canonical instruments, styles• Gives students/teachers a reason to stick with our platform!

  • 40. Is this a business?Profitable?

Unsure. -Experiment: will fans stay engaged? Or just a 1-time novelty? -Depends on contracts with partners
  • 41. Is this a business?Scalable? Yes, but... -Would need good relationships with local camera crews across the US -Would need easy instructions + improved user-friendlinessBarriers to entry? Yes, if we get contracts... -Entirely dependent on exclusive contracts and customer/ partner relationships -No significant technical barriers
  • 42. Next Steps--Start with smaller orgs in sports and music , gain credibility, secure larger partnershipsTest: are larger organizations willing to work with us now that we are more established?--Have an archive of successful Narrathons from smaller sports and concert venues.Test: how many viewers do we have for archived events, is this an important part of our product?--Improve the tech: make the prototype website a real one, create a mobile app., improve the Q&A and comment aggregation system.--Consider a partnership with livestreaming services like Ustream: create a one-package deal (live stream + interactive Q&A feature)Test: interview and discuss partnership possibility and terms with livestream service providers--do they want to partner with us?--Consider other genres in music: pop, rock, folk, country music
  • 43. Is this worth furtherinvestigation?Absolutely: •  A lot of tests remaining...probably worth some further investigation. o  Didnt get to test it out with the Bears, smaller orchestras, etcNot for our entire team: o  Divergent career goals.James •  Would like to see a Narrathon appear in Young Persons Concerts with the NY PHIL.
