Music teachers give singing and voice lessons and teach people how to play numerous musical instruments like the violin, keyboard, drums, and guitar. You can work part-time or full-time anywhere from elementary and high schools to giving private lessons from a music store. You will be required to teach various musical concepts such as musical history, theory, sight-reading, and instrumental techniques.
You will also be expected to monitor your student's performance and grade their progress often through recitals and performances. Your job as a teacher requires you to enable the students to enhance their natural gifts and talents and provide training that will serve as a foundation for a music career. It helps to have a passion for music as it makes it your job to simply share that passion.
Many famous musical artists have attributed their present success to musical lessons taken when younger. A bachelor's degree in music is most commonly required. The average music teacher in the United States makes $24.33 an hour and $50,611 annually.
