Have you ever watched a child’s face light up as they discover the joy of music?

Have you seen how music can both cheer and soothe them?

Or witnessed them bloom as their self-confidence grows?

From pre-school music and movement programmes, through to pop choirs for teens, children (and their parents & carers) have been reaping the benefits of music classes for decades.

Music franchises are considered franchising pioneers in the children’s sector, with the first ones opening their doors more than 30 years ago – so it’s fair to say they’re a popular choice that have stood the test of time!

Maybe you have a background in music education, or perhaps you simply have a passion for singing and a knack of connecting with kids.

The good news is there’s a wide range of children’s music franchises to choose from – some of which only need you to be able to carry a tune and make yourself heard, while for others you’d need to be a more confident singer or musician (perhaps with some teaching experience under your belt).

But because franchisors will invariably train you to deliver their own music programmes, as well as give you the business skills you’ll need, here are the key things they’re looking for in their ideal franchisees from the get-go.

A passion for both music and early years development

The number one thing franchisors are looking for is a genuine love of music, coupled with the desire to share that passion with children. You’ll need creativity and patience to engage young minds, and will revel in nurturing their potential while fostering a love of learning.A group of young children in matching red t-shirts stand with singing in a music class to represent this blog about starting your own children's music franchise in the UK

Bags of energy

By their very nature, children’s music classes thrive on a fun and positive atmosphere. So if you’re the kind of person who can create a dynamic and engaging learning environment, while keeping the energy levels high and the smiles wide, then that’s another key quality ticked!

Strong interpersonal and communication skills

Yes, you’ll be working with children – but you’ll be interacting with their grown-ups, too (both inside and outside of your classes). Which is why effective communication is crucial to building a successful children’s music franchise.

Good organisational skills

While you’ll be trained in all the business skills you need to run your franchise, it goes without saying that strong organisational skills will help ensure your classes run smoothly and your business operates efficiently.

Why a children’s music franchise hits the right note

A children’s music franchise could be a good choice if you’re looking to build your own business that allows you to combine your love of music with a rewarding career, while also maximising your chances of success.

That’s because they give you:

  • A proven system & established programmes – plus, in many cases, a whole library of original copyrighted music. This takes the guesswork out of lesson planning and ensures a consistent, high-quality, and often unique experience for your customers.

  • Built-in brand recognition – customers will already be familiar with the brand and its reputation.

  • Support & training – including marketing guidance, operational assistance, and professional development opportunities.

  • Scalability & growth potential – by adding new locations or business steams, allowing you to grow your income alongside your customer base.
