    Fair Pay, Good Customer Service CONSTANT improvements when something is wrong.


    My clients get upset with the billing situation. I spend a lot of time explaining to them that things take time when it comes to Billing and Rescheduling. However I've noticed vast improvements in the last Month. I do wish there were more career opportunities. I also wish their were more concert opportunities. Performances for Students City wide) and for Teachers. Many of us are talented Musicians. I think: that would only increase Client satisfaction and Productivity. It's so important to keep expanding and keep going out the Box.

    Piano Teacher Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TakeLessons in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    My interviews were via phone, and there were two rounds. I was asked about my education and experience. Music questions were asked. Teaching philosophy questions were asked. I felt it was a pretty tough interview. I got the impression that they were very careful to hire only professional music teachers. I have a degree from a well known music conservatory, and I think it gave me an edge.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked about the books, methods, and repertoire I use to teach. It's tough to list all that stuff! I was glad I had prepared for that question and didn't stumble when asked.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    At TakeLessons.com, we instructors choose our own pay. Obviously if we choose a pay that's too high, we won't get any referrals. If we choose a pay that is too low, we get too many students for too little money. I charge $60/hour for piano lessons. The students I receive are very serious about their studies.
