In-Home Music Teachers

The David Thomas School of Music is currently in need of three teachers for private lessons in students' homes. We need a violin teacher for a student in St. Paul. We need someone to teach electric guitar in the Southwest Metro for two students. We also need a female saxophone teacher and a very beginning piano teacher also in the Southwest Metro area.

If you are interested in teaching any of these students, please contact Tamara at the David Thomas School of Music at 952-217-6631 or email your resume to info@davidthomasschoolofmusic as soon as possible.

Summer Music Camp - JULY 2015!

Once again, Adam's Music Lessons will be offering their Summer Music Camp this July, and it will be bigger and better than ever! We have previously had a two-week afternoon camp, and are looking at the possibility of having a full-day camp, and are in need of additional teachers to help run this camp. We cover all aspects of music. We have a vocal camp, with solos and group lessons, as well as sessions for musical instruments, composition, theory, and music appreciation. Different styles and difficulty levels of music are covered. We also include dance, choreography, costuming, props, and other items that help bring the camp alive. Our "draw" for this summer is that some of the songs will be from the Disney "Cheetah Girls" movie series.

Those who are teaching do not necessarily have to be there for the full day or every day, but we must have a clear commitment of what your availability will be for the camp.

Our proposed dates (subject to change) are from Monday, July 13 to Friday, July 17 and Monday, July 20 to Friday, July 24 with a Camp Recital on Saturday, July 25.

We have previously gone from noon to 4 pm for our sessions. However, we are in discussions about adding a morning session from 9 am to noon, especially for those students who have parents that can not bring them there in the middle of the day.

There will be some compensation for this camp, however how much that will be will largely be based upon turnout of the students and the number of teachers required for all aspects of the camp. We will also have meetings prior to the camp to prepare the material in May and June, with dates to be determined based upon availability of the teachers who sign up to teach the camp.

In-Home Lessons

Our teachers travel to the student's homes to give private music lessons. Parents love not having to bring their kids to a studio for lessons. Students love being able to practice on their own instrument in the comfort of their own home. While we have offered studio lessons, everyone who has been given the option has chosen to go with in-home lessons. This is a successful niche in the music business that has developed lots of referrals from existing families and a waiting list of interested students!

We do all the advertising to find your students, we set up the recitals, competitions, and other special events. You receive most of the lesson price, plus a travel reimbursement based upon the distance from your house to the student's house. Plus, receive additional pay over time based upon your performance. If one of your current students refers you to a new student, you'll also get to keep a greater share of pay from that referred student. You can choose as many or as few students to take on as you wish.

We are looking for people who love to teach music, and love teaching to children. Two or more years of prior teaching experience is preferred. Just starting out? If you are either a current college student who is working on or a graduate who has a degree in music, then here is your opportunity to get some teaching experience!

Most of our students initially request lessons on the piano or keyboard. However, we are looking for teachers that have a variety of musical abilities. We encourage those who teach strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and voice as well as piano and keyboard to apply!

Since our teachers travel to the student's homes to give the in-home lessons, a reliable car and a cell phone is required. A smart phone is preferred. We make every effort that your coverage area is of a manageable size and close to your residence.

Adam's Music Lessons has been teaching for over 12 years, and is currently focused on the north-central Twin Cities area, including Coon Rapids, Blaine, Fridley, Columbia Heights, and surrounding cities. We have plans to expand and will take students outside of this area when teachers become available. So if you are a teacher that wants to tackle a surrounding city, please let us know!
