      Lethbridge Music Academy - Casual or Regular Music Teachers Wanted

      Lethbridge Music Academy is seeking out fun, passionate, and skilled musicians to help us share music with our 600+ students!

      The need for teachers can come at any time, and our hope is to become acquainted with as many musicians as we can to work with now and in the future.
      Whether that be joining as a casual guest teacher, or a full or part-time teacher coming in each week!
      There's lots of flexibility, and with the Fall approaching, we are anticipating teacher changes and increased student enrollment, which means we need more teachers!

      You'll be responsible for preparing individualized lessons to students of varying skill levels and ages (mostly children, however adults as well).
      You will not be in charge of rebooking lessons, payments, or any administrative duties.
      You will need strong customer service and interpersonal skills in interactions with parents, and within the lessons themselves.

      A criminal record and vulnerable sector check is not needed to interview, but a current copy of each check is needed before starting work. Because we work primarily with children, this is essential.
      This is a great job for those who already have full-time commitments and are looking to exercise their passion in their off-hours.

      For those interested in making a career out of music education, there are possibilities of building up to a full-time schedule as time goes on.
