Why Become a Teacher? 

Our teachers enjoy a great source of revenue while doing what they love...teaching music! Let's look at the reasons teachers are choosing to become a teacher. 

  • Teach preschool-aged children during school with minimal afternoon teaching.
  • Increased income potential with group classes rather than private students.
  • Detailed lesson plans, theory assignments, teaching aids, business management forms, and promotional materials are provided.
  • Exciting, age-appropriate, fun-filled lessons with high-energy interaction.
  • Plus, unparalleled teacher training, support, and collaboration.

Join us and experience the most fun you’ll ever have teaching music!

Becoming a teacher is the perfect fit for enthusiastic, organized, confident, and professional entrepreneurs. Previous experience with teaching, student recruiting, running a business, and a willingness to share your passion is advantageous. Open the link to see if you meet the teacher and musical requirements, and then take the Self Evaluation Survey by clicking the button below. *Piano skills are not required for teaching the Sound Beginnings Curriculum.  


Which Curriculum Is Right For Me?

Let's determine which curriculum fits your lifestyle the best. This overview will be helpful in deciding. 

Most applicants begin by teaching the Let's Play Music curriculum and add additional curricula after completing the 3rd Year of Let's Play Music. It is also common to *combo train for both Sound Beginnings and either Let's Play Music or the Presto curriculum at the beginning. (*We don't permit Let's Play Music/ Presto combo training.) 

Ask yourself the following questions and then analyze the Curriculum Comparison Chart to make your selection.

Which age group do you enjoy teaching? 

  • What matches up best with your musical skillsets
  • What would your teaching space accommodate? 
  • Would you like to teach part-time or full-time? 
  • Can you teach during the day, after school, or both?

Once you obtain your license to teach, you will begin your Teacher Training. The training consists of four units that will provide you with the necessary education, skills, and support to begin teaching your specific curriculum. 

Preliminary Training: Online - 4 weeks / 40ish hours

The training includes videos and reading designed to help you set up your studio. By the end, you'll be ready to teach a practice Sample Class. (Must be complete before attending the Curriculum Seminar.)

Curriculum Seminar: (*Recommended option) *Live - 1 full day OR Online - 2 weeks 

This training includes learning the methods and philosophies of the specific curriculum you will be teaching. We demonstrate the curriculum activities, the curriculum flow, and we cover topics such as classroom management, music theory, solfege, rhythm, technique, teaching practices, and the developmental needs of teaching children.

Post Seminar Prep: Online - 1 week

The Post Seminar Prep is an online set of tasks that will help you prepare to teach! We support you in establishing your goals and offer recruiting training and support. 

Field Training: Online Zoom - throughout the school year 

Field Training is our "in-the-field" hands-on training and mentoring while teaching. You will complete your certification requirement by videoing a specified class and evaluate your teaching. Your Training Team will hold an online zoom training where they will continue to teach you how to successfully navigate your teaching for that year.
