Finding the right instructor is about more than your teacher's style or experience. The best instructors are also dependable, friendly and committed to your success! With our rigorous hiring process, you can feel confident selecting from our roster of pre-screened, local teachers.
How long has this instructor been playing, performing and teaching? What styles, genres or techniques do they specialize in? Can they teach beginners, intermediate and advanced students? These are all things we consider when hiring our teachers.
Our trained recruiters interview each and every candidate to really get a feel for who they are as a teacher. Beyond the basic talent needed, we're also looking for qualities like reliability, passion and exceptional communication skills.
We ask applicants to list professional references, including current and past students and parents. Hearing feedback from these references gives us better insight into each candidate, so we know they'll be a great fit for our program.
Finally, every TakeLessons instructor completes an annual criminal background check. With your safety as our priority, you can feel confident booking lessons with any one of our instructors.
Your search for the perfect teacher starts with the instrument or subject you'd like to learn
When we're done, only the top local candidates are invited to be a TakeLessons Certified™ instructor. Once hired, we provide our teachers with tools and ongoing training to continue improving their teaching skills and techniques.
Finally, students are encouraged to rate their experience with their teacher. We review teacher quality and retention scores regularly to ensure that our students get the best music lessons experience from every teacher, every time.
