Work for us!


Thank you for your interest in the instructor position at Melody Music Studios. My name is Kathi Kerr, owner and founder of Melody Music Studios. I believe in offering professional lessons taught in a fun and positive way. I’m looking for professional instructors who love to teach and who can teach all styles and traditional as well as by ear. Melody Music Studios handles all the advertising, policies and billing, so you can focus on what you do best – teach!
We are continually expanding to new cities, so if you’re not in a city we’re in now, I encourage you to apply and check “other” for the area on the application.  You never know if we may open your city!

Lessons are taught either in the student’s home, or in the instructor’s home or professional studio.  Instructors can choose to either travel to the students’ home and the mile radius for traveling, and/or teach from your home or professional studio.
We’ve expanded to offer group lessons of 2-6.  This is a great way for students to afford lessons, and you make more per hour.  There’s a place on the application that you can specify if you’re able to offer that at your home or professional studio.  We’ve also expanded to offer Skype lessons to our program.  So if you have a computer with a camera, internet, and the free Skype program, and are interested in offering that, check yes on that field on the application.

To apply, simply click the Apply to Teach button below and fill out the application in full.  To comlete your application, you will also need to submit a resume and recording.  Once you’ve completed the application, it will take you to a page to email them.  If you have a website with a video or audio sound clip, you can include that in the application.  There will be a field on the application where you can enter your website or say whether you’ll email or mail your recording.    If you will need to mail your recording, the address will come up once you’ve completed the application.

Here are some tips for what to include in your recording:
1. You can submit an audio or video, both are acceptable.
2. A professional quality recording is not necessary, as I’m primarily interested in hearing your musical abillity only.  Also, make sure you submit a recording where you can easily be heard. For example, if you play in a band, make sure your particular part is easily heard.
3.  If you need to mail your video or audio recording, please remember to label your recording and include a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you wish your recording returned.

Once Melody Music Studios receives your application, it will be rated.  You will be contacted, and if you qualify for hiring, we will either email you to schedule an interview or that we will hold your application for an indefinite amount of time to be considered in our next hiring, if we’re not hiring in your area at the time you apply.
Thanks again for your interest in the instructor position. For further questions, please email me.   I look forward to receiving your application and God bless!
