Employment at TBMA:
Tampa Bay Music Academy is a dream come true for music educators looking to make a living doing what they love to do! We offer a unique approach to the music school business that is a significantly better model for our teachers.
In our experience, we have found that most other music schools will make life difficult for their teaching staff in one or all of the following ways:
- Cap the tuition amount
- Enforce a non compete policy (teacher cannot teach in other locations)
- Charge a studio fee per lesson
- Pay the teacher only a percentage of the tuition collected by the school
- Require the teacher to drive to student’s homes (gas money, wear and tear on vehicle, loss of time)
- Charge building usage fees for events like recitals.
The list of hindrances above makes it difficult for professional musicians to ever make a living from teaching. At Tampa Bay Music Academy our approach is very different. We have a unique, innovative business model that is an ideal scenario for the faculty member. Contact us today to apply for the positions below.
