Musicologie – Local Music School Launches Franchise System

COLUMBUS, OH. Musicologie, Ohio’s largest private music lessons studio company founded in Grandview Heights in 2014, has announced that it will begin awarding franchises this year. 

Founders, Kay and Joseph Barker, are focused on building Musicologie into a national brand over the next five years. Kay says, “Music lessons have been around forever, but there’s no one doing it like we’re doing it. We’re so excited to be able to expand and offer simply delightful music lessons across through country through our franchise model.”

However, their focus will remain closer to home in the early stages of this new growth plan. “There are opportunities right here in central Ohio and in Cincinnati and Cleveland where we already have a presence,” says Joseph Barker, Musicologie’s Co-founder and CEO. “We’re looking for franchisee candidates right here in central Ohio who love music, love people and want to make an impact in their neighborhoods while growing a really exciting, sustainable business.”

Further evidence of Musicologie’s thoughtful approach, the Barkers engaged industry veteran, Michael Seid, and his team at MSA Worldwide, to help them develop their franchise offering and avoid common pitfalls experienced by emerging franchisors. “You can tell when an emerging franchise offering will be a great franchise system. It’s a combination of a great concept, unit economics that work for single and multi-unit franchisees, and most importantly a management team that prioritizes culture. Musicologie has it all – plus the advantage of being a fun concept working with children and anyone who loves music,” said Seid.
