WHY MUSIC TEACHERS CHOOSE TO TEACH AT Maryville Music Academy:

A CONSTANT FLOW OF NEW STUDENTS TO KEEP SCHEDULES AS FULL AS POSSIBLE 
Over the course of the year, students can move or quit. This can leave a teacher with gaps or holes in their schedule. At our academy, we spend a lot of resources on advertising and marketing year-round to keep our teacher's schedules as full as possible. We are continually registering new students for our private music lessons even during typically slower registration months like June and July. 
UNLIKE internet referral services, it is in our best interest to keep your schedule full! With the other companies, they want as many teachers as possible in as many places as possible. They don't care if you only have two students. We have to pay for studios and it takes time and money to hire instructors. Therefore we want you to have a full schedule and succeed as a music teacher! It is far easier to support one teacher with a full schedule than it is to support 15 teachers with a couple of students each. 

EXTRAS ARE TAKEN CARE OF – YOUR ONLY RESPONSIBILITY IS TO TEACH 
Our organized and friendly administrative and management staff handle all of the details. From scheduling to collecting fees to organizing recitals and events. These details are handled by our administrators, not the teacher. This means the teacher is free to focus on teaching and not get bogged down by administration or handling awkward situations in regard to tuition collection or scheduling. Driving all over town for a couple of lessons, trying to remember who is months behind on tuition, and trying to protect your time against student cancellations with no pay are all problems of the past. 

PAID TRAINING, ONGOING COACHING, & BONUSES PROVIDED 
Maryville Music Academy is one of those rare places that actually have a vision statement that we live by and make decisions by every day. Our vision is all about growth, and we believe in fostering an environment of growth for everyone, teachers included. Whether you have only taught a handful of students or have been teaching for 50 years, we believe that you can grow and refine your skills at our school without being put into a box or forced to follow any certain curriculum. We have an abundance of resources and work together as a team to uphold and continually raise MMA’s reputation of excellence to what it is. While we welcome all beginning students to our school, we don’t want to simply be a revolving door for them, but rather to create an environment of long-term growth where they take lessons and progress for years and years and years. We are revolutionizing the music school industry with our inspiring teacher training and incentive programs, and are always seeking teachers who are open-minded to growth and improvement. All teachers are given the opportunity to earn bonuses based on performance.

YOUR TIME IS RESPECTED AND YOU ARE PAID WHEN STUDENTS CANCEL LATE 
Our teachers are paid when students do not provide 24-hour notice. Even when they DO provide 24-hour notice, we do our best to book a make-up lesson in that spot so that you are still paid. Our teachers are very comfortable knowing how much income they will make in any given month.

NO HAVING TO COME IN FOR EXTRA MAKE-UP LESSONS 
Make-ups only occur within your regular teaching schedule; no make-ups on random days and times. Students sign up for make-up lessons over other students’ absences. This means when one of your students is absent, we turn that lesson time into an available make-up time for another student. The system is flexible for our students and families and means you never have to worry about setting aside time outside of your regular schedule for make-ups, or teaching an unpaid make-up lesson. 

USE THE MATERIALS YOU LIKE BEST 
There is no mandated school-wide curriculum or set of method books. Unlike many other music schools or stores, we are not looking to sell any merchandise or books. We trust our teachers at MMA to be experts in their fields, and encourage them to use the materials they think are best for each individual student. 

WE ORDER YOUR STUDENTS’ BOOKS FOR YOU 
We take care of all book ordering and can order whatever you like for your students! So when your student needs a new book or sheet music, just fill out our quick online Material Request form, and we’ll take care of it for you and get it into your hands within a week!

COMFORTABLE AND PROFESSIONAL TEACHING ENVIRONMENT 
We provide our teachers with a beautiful, comfortable, spacious teaching space. Our academy is clean and well-maintained.  Plus, we have water, coffee, tea, and WIFI.

ALWAYS KNOW YOUR SCHEDULE WITH OUR ONLINE SCHEDULING SYSTEM 
Access your updated schedule, absences, make-ups, etc. online through our teacher app at all times. Our teacher app is incredibly easy to navigate and allows teachers to always be kept up to date on their students and schedule from home or on the go or wherever you are. Plus every time a student enrolls or drops or changes their schedule, you will immediately be sent an email and text notification, and your schedule is automatically updated.

NO NON-COMPETE CLAUSE 

Our teachers don’t have to worry about any non-compete clause and most typically teach at several schools or their own private studio in addition to teaching at our academy. We understand that musicians usually need to work several jobs in order to make a living and we support that very much! So if you already teach at another school or plan to in the future, no matter where it’s located, we still welcome you to teach at MMA. 

RESPECT AND APPRECIATION 
Excellent teachers don’t grow on trees. We truly value and respect each one of our instructors. We are here to help you in any way we can!
