Suzuki Violin Teacher

Anderson Music Studio is urgently seeking a Suzuki violin teacher to join the faculty at our studio in west suburban Riverside.

We currently boast more than 40 violin, cello, and piano students, but we are seeking the right teacher to help us welcome in even more violin students. We can guarantee that you’d start with at least three students, with more steadily enrolling each month.

This position begins with a six month contract with an option to be hired long-term based on performance. Our teachers enjoy the benefits of a well-established program; you can just show up and teach – no need to handle marketing or parent education.

We are predominantly a Suzuki school but do offer traditional style lessons by request. Willingness to teach both methodologies is a plus. We have a strong preference for educators with music education degrees, Suzuki training through at least book 1, and a minimum of two years of teaching experience.

Teachers are hired as independent contractors but receive ongoing support from our studio director in a collaborative environment. The average shift is 4 hours, usually from 3-7 PM. As an independent contractor, you are able to set your own hours based on classroom and student availability. Pay is an hourly rate commensurate with experience and training, beginning at an absolute minimum of $32/hour, with the option to earn a set salary after the six month trial.

Job requirements include:
  • Teaching private lessons and group classes
  • Constructing and implementing clear plans for student growth
  • Maintaining a consistent and reliable schedule
  • Communicating and collaborating with the director, caregivers, and other teachers
  • Attending studio recitals and occasional community outreach events
To apply, please send a resume to Nissa at If you’d like to expedite the interview process, please also send a performance video as well as a teaching excerpt of at least 10 minutes.
