Okay, so, I’ve come to tell you my ideas.
I was doing some keyword research yesterday using the free Google Keyword tool. I wanted something I already knew about. Something I did not have to research. Something I had material on at home (excluding the internet).
That’s where this goes into a personal story of how sibling rivalry led to something good, something I cherish, and something I’ll do forever in life.
BUT! That’s not my topic at all. Too competitive. There’s a billion online piano lessons sites out there. There’s plenty more that are actually.. good? Moreover, that would take a LOT of time to build a product for.
My topic is how to read music.
I can touch on piano. I can talk about how to practice piano to get good at music reading. The two somewhat merge into each other (because piano is pretty much the #1 instrument to use sheet music).
Most of all, I know how to to do this. I’ve done it for most of my life. I’m 25 right now (gosh I’m old). I’ve done it since I was 4.
So yea, that’s my topic. I have a site up. I have posted some content albeit slowly. So it’s definitely in progress.
I already know there’s an audience out there that can play piano and can’t read music (I secretly admire them).
I know I can easily build a mailing list offering popular sheet music that people can practice from. If not sheet music, I can offer additional tips. I can offer short videos that I post on youtube. I can offer a question and answer service.
I can even dare to start a membership site to where members can watch videos of me explaining things. This option of monetization sounds really good to me.
I can also incorporate other instruments (I’ve played guitar, clarinet, harmonica, and violin).
