Are you ready to join a team of dedicated music teachers who are passionate about teaching children the tools to develop individuality through music?
Read on if you would like to apply to teach Piano, Violin, Voice, Guitar, or Other Instruments at the Maestro Musicians Academy!
The Maestro Musicians Academy serves children and adults, ages 4+ with a particular focus on children and pre-teens. Our mission is to kindle a love for the Magic of Music and inspire children to partake in the amazing traditional musical legacy that has been passed on to us over many generations. We believe that music speaks to the soul and we desire to give children the tools to express themselves through this magical medium.
Our Primary Focus is on the Private Music Lesson. We measure success by a child’s ability to understand, trust, and enjoy the lessons taught by our teachers
We give teachers the freedom to choose their own curriculum, as our focus is more on the spiritual and expressive process of learning, rather than on the methods and techniques taught (albeit also important).
Communication is Key
We believe that students learn best when teachers regularly communicate written or typed assignments on a weekly basis. Clarity of expectations is important to a long-term successful outcome.
At the Maestro Musicians Academy, we believe in the following seven core values:
1. Prioritize the musical needs of your students as highly as your own
2. Value the time and schedule of your students’ families as highly as your own
3. Develop a long-term, trusting relationship with our students and their families
4. Express yourself through the eyes and ears of a child
5. Meet students wherever they are on their personal journeys
