Music teacher

What is it like to be a Music teacher?

Music teachers educate school students in the curriculum area of music and work in public and private schools. They teach students the theory and practical skills associated with developing their musical skills including teaching them musical concepts, theory and history, preparing creative practical activities and providing aural training, among many others duties. They may also be involved with organising school musicals, choirs and concerts.

Is it right for me?

Music teachers enthuse students to appreciate music through teaching practical skills, history and theory. As a music teacher you’ll be proficient in at least one instrument and have an active interest in teaching music.
