Who owns the intellectual property? What if I develop my own processes and teaching materials? Who will own the IP to my developments?2018-04-20T00:53:02+00:00

The licensor owns the intellectual property. A licensee may develop their own teaching skills and techniques in the teaching of our program but is obliged to follow our program and teaching materials. Additional teaching materials may not be introduced to Mini Maestros music classes without prior agreement of the licensor.

What sort of training and support can I expect both upfront and on-going?2023-10-02T05:07:35+00:00

Training of international licensees and their teachers is self-managed by video courses plus online written materials. The training package comprises the following:

  1. New teacher training (Mini Maestros philosophy, musical skills and classroom management)
  2. Program training (learning the repertoire)
  3. Class administration training
  4. Teaching equipment training
  5. Marketing training (marketing demonstrations and marketing administration)

Licensees have access to one on one support and guidance plus periodic group workshops.

How much freedom do I have when preparing my class plans?2018-04-09T06:39:35+00:00

We have a set and sequential program and each teacher can choose their activities for each lesson based on our lesson guides. The teacher will then use their skills and experience to extend our set activities where appropriate and according to the needs of each class. It’s like purchasing a curriculum that you then deliver in your best way possible. You have freedom to best apply your skills and style within our framework.

Can I sell my licence?2018-04-09T06:38:11+00:00

No. Mini Maestros licences are not transferable.

Does a licensee pay royalties? What is the fee structure?2023-10-03T00:21:03+00:00

No royalties are payable. A licensee pays an initial licence fee for the first year and then annual renewals are payable. A licensee must also purchase the student equipment from the licensor.

What is an exclusive territory?2018-04-20T00:55:56+00:00

An exclusive territory is a defined geographical area in which one licensee has the exclusive right to present the Mini Maestros program. If you have purchased an exclusive licence (as opposed to a non-exclusive licence for a single location) then no other licensee is allowed to do these things in your territory. You can set up as many centres offering the Mini Maestros program in the territory as you like.
