We are currently hiring for open music teaching positions throughout the United States.

    I tried three instructors before calling The Music Teachers Network. None of them hold a candle to our new teacher. She is on time, the kids love her and I'm comfortable with her in my home. Thank you.

    My 5-yo daughter Paige has really taken to her new teacher. What a difference a slight increase in pay makes. We were so happy with our selection and highly recommend this service for music lessons.

    I remember taking music lessons when I was in prep school. Now, after many years of working and raising a family - I'm finally back to it. It's never too late for music!
    - Jane Y., FL


    I'm just so happy someone we liked actually got back to us. It seemed like most of the people we wanted from online profiles never returned our calls. We had no idea it could be so time consuming to find music lessons. Wish we'd come here first.
