Getting you more pupils
We’ll help you grow your pupil base as much or as little as you want. Some of our professors want one pupil, others ten; it's completely up to you. You won’t have the hassle of finding pupils or marketing yourself - we have a full client database. With our pupils being taught to play instruments ranging from voice to harmonica, ordinarily pupils are ready and waiting to be taught by you.
Highly lucrative income
Our hourly rate is competitive, and comes with the added bonus you have the UK’s largest music tuition business behind you.
Our wonderful team handles all the billing, including chasing up payments. You’ll also get paid a full term in advance; and with a minimum of 10 sessions per pupil per term, you’ll know your guaranteed minimum income.

Once you are part of the Arts Academy family, you'll be part of The Arts Group; which also entails Arts Symphonic - a symphony orchestra, Arts Voices - a choir, Arts Associates - an artist agency. This means we like to look after our staff; to start with, we offer to fund 50% of your ISM (Incorporated Society of Musicians) Student or first year Graduate membership. Benefits of becoming a member include careers advice, legal assistance, contract advisory services, publicity liability cover, exclusive insurance schemes, instrument protection, courses and workshops, and much, much more. It is compulsary to become a member of the ISM or MU when joining the Arts Academy, to make sure you have the correct Public Liability insurance in place.
You must be a undergraduate or graduate of a music college/university. You need the ability to instruct beginner to advanced pupils from ages 4 and up. You’ll need to pass an enhanced DBS check. You must be at least 18 years old. You do not need prior teaching experience. You must be able to have fun, and pass that enjoyment onto others.
How does it work?
For every 55 minute session you teach on behalf of the Arts Academy you’ll get paid the starting rate of £20, and 30 minute sessions at £13 - way above national average rates. This all happens working in advance of each term (e.g. 10 week term at £20 = £200.00 per pupil paid into your account at the start of each term).
The management have discretionary options to increase professors pay in stages up to £25 per session for professors who have been with us over one year and have shown good commitment to the business.
We give you the freedom to fit your Arts Academy schedule in with your day to day life, as well as your financial needs. You only take on as many pupils as you need financially and socially; no minimum, no maximum!
