WHY MUSIC TEACHERS CHOOSE TO TEACH AT TMMA:
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 school, we spend a lot of money on advertising and marketing year-round to keep our teachers' 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 guys, they want as many teachers as possible in as many places as possible. They don't care if you only have 2 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 students each.
EXTRAS ARE TAKEN CARE OF – YOUR ONLY RESPONSIBILITY IS TO TEACH
Our organized and friendly customer service personnel handle all of the details. From scheduling to collecting fees to organizing recitals. 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. Driving all over town for a couple lessons, trying to remember who is months behind on tuition, and trying to collect for missed lessons are all problems of the past.
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.
TEACH THE WAY YOU THINK IS BEST
There is no mandated school-wide teaching method. We trust our teachers at TMMA to be experts in their fields, and encourage them to teach every student however they see fit, using the materials they think are best.
All recitals are completely organized and run by TMMA staff, and are offered twice a year. We rent a beautiful recital space at Caldwell University and our administrative team takes care of all logistics from helping students sign up to the physical set-up/breakdown, as well as everything involved with the daily logistics.
COMFORTABLE AND PROFESSIONAL TEACHING ENVIRONMENT
We provide our teachers with a beautiful, comfortable, spacious teaching space. All of our locations are incredibly clean, new, and well-maintained with ample waiting room for all students, as well as large, comfortable teaching rooms. Plus, we have coffee, WIFI, and a teacher’s area for making copies, socializing, or taking breaks.
ALWAYS KNOW YOUR SCHEDULE WITH OUR ONLINE SCHEDULING SYSTEM
Access your updated schedule, absences, make-ups, etc. online at all times. Our teacher portal 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.
FRIENDLY COMMUNITY AND COLLABORATIVE OPPORTUNITIESWe are constantly creating opportunities for instructors and staff to get to know one another and support one another. One of the greatest resources available at TMMA is membership to a huge, friendly, chatty community of other teaching professionals.
RESPECT AND APPRECIATION
Excellent teachers don’t grow on trees. We truly value and respect each one of our instructors. Feel free to ask for references from other current instructors. They love it here!
