GetLessonsNow lets you to link to your own studio website or YouTube videos as well as letting potential music students contact you by telephone. This choice doesn’t always help them, because teachers don’t know where the referral came from, and therefore don’t appreciate the value of this service at times. It is however a wonderfully appreciated advantage for teachers.

Launched in 2009, this music teacher directory offers visitors the ability to search for teachers in USA and Canada. Actually traffic is not known, though the alexa ranking and the age of this website indicate that traffic to the website is still fairly low. At the date of this post they are offering a one year trail membership. In the future memberships will cost 39.00 per year. They do seem like they are a web-based service to keep your eye on.
