MusicTeachers.co.uk is more than a website. By investing in music education, we are developing a world class online music education platform where students and teachers come together safely, for a quality experience.
Yes. If you’re a music professional, or aspiring to be one, then MusicTeachers.co.uk is a great place to grow your teaching practice. We accept all instruments and simply ask for a great level of musicianship (think equivalent to a Bachelor's degree) and some experience as a music educator. Each application is assessed by one of our team and we love talking to interested teachers and answering questions about the platform. If you’re thinking about applying, get in touch with us via [email protected].
The platform is here to work for you. Expertise and investment in marketing means you can expect a high number of visitors to your profile, all looking for lessons. There are tools to help make the administrative side as smooth and time efficient as possible. Book lessons into our system and MusicTeachers.co.uk takes care of the rest. You can expect to see your student list, and income grow month on month.
You can expect rapid and quality support when needed and no interference when you don’t. We pride ourselves on responding to feedback quickly and are always looking for new and better ways of doing things.
This is not just a marketing website. We stand for something. 1000+ teachers have joined us already and we share the vision of the teachers we work with; creating a world with more music in it. We are standing by to welcome you.
Fast and quality support when required. This is your business, but we are here to help whenever you need it. We pride ourselves on our customer service and are always looking for ways to improve your experience. This is much more than being in the top results on Google searches. We’re here to provide a professional, safe space for music education.
With our guidance, you’ll make an outstanding profile page. We’re proud of having high standards of vetting and safeguarding. We’ll help you verify your id, provide references and an enhanced disclosure certificate (DBS / PVG / Access NI). Once published, all enquiries, bookings, payments and communications are carried out in one place - your account at MusicTeachers.co.uk.
There are no upfront costs to you.
We take a percentage of each lesson cost which we call the platform fee. Fees can be as low as 10%, depending on your level of membership. The more hours you teach through MusicTeachers.co.uk, the less is payable in platform fees.
You are paid directly into your bank account by the 5th of the following month after the lessons took place. For example, lessons given in January will be paid by 5th February. We collect the fees for you and add the lessons to your invoice, allowing you to keep track of your earnings throughout the month.
Yes, you are self-employed and can organise your work however you wish. The main requirement is that students that find you through MusicTeachers.co.uk are taught using our administrative systems for the duration of their lessons with you.
No. All teachers using the platform do so on a self-employed basis.
No, your lessons can take place in-person or online. If you choose to teach online, we offer a purpose-built OnlineClassRoom™ and provide technical support should you need it. Online teaching is now an important part of the teaching mix, and we are committed to creating new tools to make online teaching and learning the best experience possible.
Yes. You are in control of when your profile is displayed to new students. Once you are full, it’s no problem to hide your profile, then unhide it when you are quieter.
No. You teach your students as you see fit and we will never interfere in your teaching. We recommend making it very clear on your profile what your students can expect from you and what you expect from your students.
Currently our cancellation policy is:
We may introduce more cancellation/refund options for teachers to choose from moving forward.
Now more than ever, it’s so important to be very careful when working online. We will never disclose your personal information. By default, prospective students will only see an abridged version of your name (for example Ella F or Jarvis C) and the first part of your postcode if you are working in-person. You can then choose to amend the name displayed to students as you wish. We’ve also got messaging and file sharing systems for you to use. These systems are designed to protect your information above all else.
