Five Reasons Why You Should NOT Become a Musikgarten Teacher
- You love rigid work schedules. As an independent Musikgarten teacher, you’ll set your own schedule and plan as many (or as few) classes on the days that work best for you and your life. Full-time or part-time, it’s up to you.
- You like a very strict curriculum with no room for flexibility. With Musikgarten, each class and semester is thoughtfully organized and well planned, however teachers can adapt classes to their strengths and to the strengths and interests of the children.
- Training? You prefer to just “wing it” and figure things out on your own. As you’ll find out, Musikgarten offers a variety of training opportunities such as webinars, live coaching sessions, workshops, and festivals as well as teacher support materials and a blog written just for Musikgarten teachers.
- You’d like to drive all over town searching for class materials. Musikgarten actually has everything available for purchase that you need to successfully run your studio, including music and instruments.
- You’re hoping to spend more time making marketing materials than making music. Musikgarten provides teachers with a variety of beautiful marketing and support materials as well as training, a bi-weekly e-newsletter and a monthly blog with marketing tools and tips.
As you can tell, we’re being a bit cheeky here! The truth is, there are so many great reasons to become a Musikgarten teacher, from setting your own schedule to finally realizing your dream of doing exactly what you love – teaching children the joy of music!
Take it from Musikgarten teachers:
“I would recommend teaching Musikgarten to anyone because the teacher training and support gives you the opportunity to be your own boss and confidently teach others to love all that music has to offer.” – Erin Meats, Hilliard Community Music School
“As a teacher, you set your work schedule, but it doesn’t feel like work, since you’re doing something you love!” – Heather McEndree, Musikgarten Teacher with Cumberland Valley School of Music
“Teaching Musikgarten is a fabulous way to create a little extra income, or a lot of extra income! If you want to make a full-time position for yourself, Musikgarten training can open doors into preschools, into rec centers, into community arts centers!” – Mary Rekers, Musik Kids Director
“I love owning my own business, setting my own hours, setting my own calendar for the year, being able to take weeks off when I want to … I love that Musikgarten is responsive to their teachers and are always pleasant to work with. And I love the research that has gone into the Musikgarten curriculum so it’s all developmentally appropriate!” – Lynelle Vogel, Music for Life Musikgarten Studio
“The teaching of children, who are playful by nature, is great joy! The joy of being creative and becoming a better teacher is another source of great satisfaction. Each and every day, as a Musikgarten teacher, I have these magical moments while I teach – I share my love of music, my love of piano and my love of nature with the children!” – Mary Rekers, Musik Kids Director
