Anderson Music Studio is seeking a piano, cello, and/or violin teacher to join the faculty at our studio in west suburban Riverside.
We are an established violin school of almost 40 students, but we are seeking the right teacher to help expand our programming into cello and piano. We can guarantee that you’d start with at least a few students, but we are looking for a teacher who is open to doing community outreach and working collaboratively with the director to develop a program aligned with the school’s values.
This position will begin with a six month contract with an option to be hired long-term based on performance. Our teachers enjoy the benefits of a well-established program; you can just show up and teach – no need to handle the scheduling, marketing, or parent education.
We are predominantly a Suzuki school but do offer traditional style lessons by request. Willingness to teach both methodologies is a plus. We have a strong preference for educators with music education degrees, Suzuki training through at least book 1, and a minimum of two years of teaching experience.
Teachers are hired as independent contractors but receive ongoing support from our studio director in a collaborative environment. The average shift is 4 hours, usually from 3-7 PM. As an independent contractor, you are able to set your own hours. Pay is an hourly rate commensurate with experience and training, with the option to earn a set salary after a minimum of 6 months.
Job requirements include:
- Teaching private lessons and group classes
- Constructing and implementing clear plans for student growth
- Maintaining a consistent and reliable schedule
- Communicating and collaborating with the director, caregivers, and other teachers
- Attending studio recitals and occasional community events
To apply, please send a resume to Nissa at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to expedite the interview process, please also send a performance video as well as a teaching excerpt of at least 10 minutes.
