Lesson With You live online music lessons with pro teachers

Teach Piano from Cedar Rapids - Fully Remote

Current Cedar Rapids, Iowa Piano Instructor Job Openings

Description

Lesson With You (“LWY”) is a leading US provider of live, online private music lessons. With over 60 instructors for instruments and vocals, we pride ourselves on providing excellent instruction and an outstanding student experience. We are currently seeking piano instructors based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but this fully remote role is also open to any candidate located within the US with US work authorization.

This role is currently ONLY open to those who have a Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Doctorate in Piano Performance or Piano Pedagogy.

Duties

Piano instructors can expect to teach both recurring lessons and trial lessons until the instructor reaches scheduling capacity. LWY offers 30, 45 and 60 minute piano lessons and our clientele ranges from beginner to advanced, elementary-aged students to retirees. Qualified candidates should be comfortable teaching all levels and should have a variety of industry-standard teaching materials on hand.

Administrative duties are minimal, as LWY employs staff to handle trial scheduling and billing. Instructors are required to submit weekly lesson summary for payroll verification.

Scheduling

LWY is currently experiencing a large volume of piano lesson inquiries. Each new student is eligible for a complimentary 30-minutes lesson — with the majority of prospects electing to continue with weekly recurring lessons. Qualified instructors with consistent availability during “peak hours” can expect to quickly develop a full schedule of students. Peak hours are defined as weekdays 4pm to 8pm in any of the 4 US time zones (Eastern, Central, Mountain and Pacific). Instructors with other availability are welcome but may receive students more slowly.

LWY is eager to hire talented, enthusiastic and thoughtful piano instructors and, as such, will work to accommodate successful candidates who have additional conflicts, such as graduate work or additional part-time employment. However, we do look for consistent availability in order for students to be able to regularly attend lessons at a consistent time each week.

Requirements

  • Must have at least a Bachelor’s degree (or higher) in piano performance or pedagogy.
  • Qualified candidates must have a high quality microphone, webcam, and computer. Applicants will verify these items during the interview process.
  • Candidates should be prepared to provide a video recording that showcases their music performance level.
  • Candidates must be fluent in English.
  • Candidates should be based in the US or able to teach US time zones with US work authorization.

This is a contract position for which US work authorization is required. We are happy to assist with CPT/OPT applications.

Compensation

Compensation is based on education level, performance level, and teaching experience. Teachers at Lesson With You are paid as contractors. The rates range between $24 and $30 per hour.
