Exceptional Guitar Teacher (and Team Member) Wanted At USOM – With Minimum 1 Year Teaching Experience

Ultimate School of Music is a dynamic, successful and well-established music school in Dun Laoghaire. We are looking for an exceptional guitar teacher to join our team for the long term. Stop reading NOW unless you truly intend to commit long term because our students are not your gap filler.

The emphasis of our school is to provide a fun atmosphere where students LOVE learning to play music confidently with others. We teach adults, teenagers and children from 8 years old, and our students range from complete beginners to very advanced players. We place no value on teaching music lessons just to pass Grade exams. Yawn……..Instead our focus is to help our students achieve their own goals, feel great about themselves and inspire them to become outstanding guitarists. We use our own unique proven syllabus and methods. We encourage students to take part in our student performances such as this one.

This position is ideal for someone who wants to work at a music school full time, 38 hours a week. This includes teaching up to 25 hours a week, and the other 13 hours comprising some admin, helping create new lesson materials, and some sales work. The job would start part-time and build up over time to reach 38 hours a week. Our school has ambitious long term goals and we only want team members who want to join us for the long term to help us exceed those goals.

If you are someone who wants:

  • To earn a stable and regular income from teaching guitar
  • To join a team of passionate, enthusiastic guitar education professionals who care deeply about their work and students

  • I welcome the opportunity to improve my teaching through regular evaluation and feedback
  • I am genuinely interested in being involved in the day-to-day running of a music school, and not ONLY in teaching guitar
