teacher application


How do I become a teacher with Music Coach? 

You can become a teacher with Music Coach by filling out a teacher application form below, which is super quick and easy. From there, you will instructed to create a professional teacher profile and submit to a criminal and background check. After you’ve submitted this we will then set you up on the back end where you can provide us with your availability, skills, teaching style etc. Once we have everything we need we will create a dedicated teacher page for you on our website where we will then match you with incoming students who have prepaid for lessons. 

How do I get students?

For starters we recommend creating a content rich teacher profile that you’re happy with. After that, our marketing team will do the rest to get word out for students in your area and tell incoming students about you and all the reasons why you would be a great teacher for them. With this we will show off your profile, pictures, video introduction, student reviews and background check to help make you stand out. Once a student has pre-paid for their lessons, we will give you a call to confirm an initial lesson and will have you call your new student to introduce yourself and confirm lesson details on your end. 

What is the cost to use Music Coach’s service?

Music Coach is completely free! We do not charge our teachers and only make money when you do. You have 100% control over your schedule and earnings at all times.

How will I be paid?

Teachers are paid every two weeks. When a teacher signs on to teach with us, they will receive an invoice template to be filled out and sent to Music Coach and Music Coach will then pay out the teacher to their notated bank account as provided and stated on the invoice. Rates include: $24/half hour, $39/45 minutes and $48/hour. 

How many students will I receive? 

We unfortunately cannot guarantee a certain number of students as there are many different factors that play in to student searches and enquiries coming through. Things such as popularity of instruments, location, skill level etc. are all factors. To help you get more students quickly what we do recommend is opening up your schedule as much as possible, teach in multiple locations (your place, students place and online), offer more than one instrument and make sure that your profile is well written with pictures and videos to help. We find that teachers who get good reviews on their profiles, communicate well with Music Coach admin and keep their students coming back with a “standout teacher” badge are pushed to the top of the pack. 

What curriculum do I teach? 

You are 100% in charge of your curriculum. As a Music Coach teacher, you will have access to support and teaching resources but how you teach is completely up to you. As long as your students are happy and keep coming back for more, we’ll keep sending students your way. 

What happens when I get a new student?  

When you receive a new student you will receive and email, text and a call from us letting you know that you have a new student and will provide you with the necessary student information. Just confirm with Music Coach admin that you are good to teach the student. We will then ask you as a curtesy to the student to give them a ring to introduce yourself and confirm the initial lesson booking that Music Coach booked based on your provided availability and you are on your way. You’ll have 48 hours to accept a new student with Music coach admin before the student will be offered to a different teacher. 

Where do lessons take place? 

You can opt to teach from:
1. Your location
2. From a students home 
3. Online via Zoom 
If you choose to teach from your location, it must be clean, appropriate for children, and an area dedicated for teaching - bedrooms and kitchens do not qualify for teaching.
