What Would YOUR Job Posting Look Like?

If you had a write a job posting for your own position as a music teacher, what would it look like? Would it be full of undesirable responsibilities? Or would it sound like an ideal position? 

I hope the following entertains and inspires….

Mad props to Dr. Gayle Kowalchyk for sharing her story about how she became a piano teacher and for posting a realistic, if somewhat bleak version of a piano teacher job posting. You’re right: there is no other position like being a self-employed music teacher.

The big question… 

Would YOU apply for your own job? If the answer is no… then it’s probably time to rethink how you’re running your business. There are so many amazing business-related music teacher resources out there in today’s world! Get out there and make your job something that you love. 

I wear many hats nowadays, but one of my favorite things to do is help other piano and voice teachers LOVE their jobs. Whether it’s through small groups, webinars, or one-on-one coaching, it’s my goal to make the world of self-directed music teachers a happier and more prosperous place.  


I would highly recommend Sara Campbell as a business coach for your music studio business.  The investment of time and money in the coaching sessions was very worth it.   Sara helped me to see what my value as a teacher was to my students, and gave me the confidence to communicate that to the families in my studio. The results have been a significant increase in my revenue, and a greater respect from my clients for me, not only as a music teacher, but as a business owner. I now have a studio schedule and policies that will allow me to enjoy my profession as a music teacher in a way that I never have before… and this will be my 34th year of teaching music! ~ Julie D.
