What is The Music Bus?

The Music Bus is revolutionising the way music is taken to Primary Schools. With an amazing mobile music teaching classroom, The Music Bus provides music lessons on Keyboards, Guitar, Drums, Singing and Rockband. With currently more than 2,500 students at over 100 schools and 10 buses on the road teaching 46,000 lessons a year, it is the fastest growing music education system for primary school aged children in Australia. With the launch of our new vaction care, Kindy program and birthday party initiatives, the potential has expanded enormously. In the next 5 years we forecast the number of children to be taking part in the program to exceed 50,000! We need you to be part of this forecast demand!

Having been an innovative provider of school music tuition for over a decade, The Music Bus commenced franchising in 2009 and is rapidly expanding into new regions. Due to increased visibility, awareness, convenience and word of mouth referrals, our brand has had massive double digit growth in popularity and profits over recent years.


A Franchise that makes a difference

Fiona Sutton with students

The Music Bus is a well established business teaching kids music for well over a decade. The Music Bus allows primary schools to economically put back or support their current music curriculum program. It is proven that music education increases learning ability in children for maths and English, not to mention developing creative and social skills. At The Music Bus we believe all kids should be given the opportunity to be taught music in a fun and dynamic environment. We now need interested people to come share and help creating further opportunities across Australia.


Franchisees needed urgently - Schools waiting

Not only does The Music Bus give you students from day 1, we have interested schools that want to launch the program in their schools and we urgently need Franchisees to cater for the growth and demand. We also have a well developed growth model & system for you to fill your Music Bus and secure your desired profitability.


The Music Bus Business System

The Music Bus is a highly developed franchise model. Created in conjunction with Franchise Works, the design and development of your Music Bus is fully organized and facilitated with a fully supported marketing program targeting schools to secure and fill your Music Bus. Head office also supports Franchisees with administration support, marketing tools and advanced payment collection systems tied to class scheduling. This is a well designed business system giving you every chance of success, including immediate income from students provided by the Franchisor. The last Franchisee that launched secured 60% full by its first day of operation, demonstrating the improved security of The Music Bus system and the desired demand for The Music Bus by the schools system. Comprehensive initial training and ongoing business support are all part of becoming a valued member of The Music Bus team.

A secure investment

The Music Bus franchise is very simple in terms of risk. Depending on student numbers in a school, you need to provide you services to 5-10 schools or 350 students and your bus is full! The Music Bus also commits to give you 60 students to kick you off - to have your costs covered immediately. One regional new Franchisee had already signed up 6 schools prior to the completion of the set-up of their Music Bus. We have the systems and know how to secure schools. The Music Bus has a tested and highly developed program for marketing to and approaching schools for the provision of a Music Bus and its programs. All you need to do is focus on signing up the initial schools and then teach (or provide a teacher) the developed class programs to the children's delight. The simplicity of this model, thanks to the support of the Franchisor, improves the focus and success of Franchisees. Your next issue will be considering having more than one Music Bus on the road as you grow to cater for the demand from schools wanting the Music Bus program in their schools. The education Department has also reviewed The Music Bus program and are supportive of The Music Buses objective to provide their music curriculum services to all schools in Australia. Come take a test drive with The Music Bus Financial Scenario Tool developed by Franchise Works to assess the potential returns and the work required to fill The Music Bus. You will be surprised at how simple and clear the role of the Franchisee and your financial security is.

What do our Music Bus Franchisees have to say?

"I discovered The Music Bus when they came to my daughter's school in 2009 and loved the Music Bus concept. It's affordable, accessible and she loves it! My experience, plus the feedback from schools and parents, prompted me to get involved further so The Music Bus could be brought to more schools and families in my area. So I brought into the business in April 2010 as a Franchisee. I'm enjoying my Music Bus experience, being a part of this growing business that brings Music, Learning & Laughter into the lives of our kids."

Jade Papesch (Music Bus franchisee - Wollongong)

"Every day is a great day teaching with the Music Bus. I have the satisfaction of doing something I love and the reward of inspiring my students with the joy of music"

Matthew Hughes (Music Bus franchisee - Western Sydney)
