ON CHORD ACADEMY’S APPROACH

On Chord Academy believes music education should be simple and transparent, should create passion for music and performing, and should always respect the investment of the student, parent and teacher.

BECOMING A TEACHER FOR ON CHORD IS AS EASY AS THESE THREE STEPS

1. Commit to a time block.

2. Let us fill your schedule.

3. Arrive ready to teach.

SPEND MORE TIME TEACHING AND LESS TIME ADMINISTRATING

As a private music instructor, you should be able to focus on teaching students. Let us take care of the rest.

You’re a Teacher, Not a Marketer

Most private music instructors want more students. But they are hard to find when you primarily recruit by word-of-mouth. If you’ve been frustrated by this, you aren’t alone. On Chord Academy conducted an internal survey that showed 63% of Utah music teachers depend exclusively on word-of-mouth advertising.

On Chord Academy continually markets our teachers through online and traditional channels and, thanks to our advanced scheduling software, students can sign up for lessons 24 hours a day. That means you get to teach more, and market less not at all.

More Lessons, Fewer Phone Calls

When asked their least favorite part of teaching music lessons, most Utah instructors said it was scheduling. Whether dealing with unplanned cancellations, missed lessons, or just keeping up with scheduling and rescheduling appointments, managing a teacher’s schedule is a headache.

When you teach music lessons for On Chord Academy, you can forget about the constant stream of text’s, emails and phone calls. Our scheduling software lets students schedule and reschedule classes online. It even sends them reminders about lessons, so they won’t forget.

Automated Payment Collection

Keeping track of which students have and haven’t paid, prorating partial months, collecting from students or parents, and remembering to make regular deposits can be a hassle. Not to mention keeping your books for tax purposes.

Our scheduling software features integrated payment processing. Billing and collection is taken care of at the time of booking. Student and parents see payment terms, prorated installments (for partial months) and they pay for their lessons upfront and online. No more having to remind forgetful students.

TEACH MUSIC LESSONS, FOCUSING ON THE EXPERIENCE, NOT THE ADMINISTRATION

ALL THESE BENEFITS WITH NO DIRECT COST TO YOU

The responsibility to fill your schedule is entirely ours.

ON CHORD ACADEMY MUSIC TEACHERS

We invest a great deal in simplifying the private instruction experience.We expect our instructors to be equally invested.

Provide a set curriculum for students

Our teachers are able to build and provide their own planned curriculum and syllabus for beginning and intermediate students. Our students want to know their experienced instructor has a plan to help them succeed. We require our teachers to have that plan set in advance so students can build their education on their thoughtful curriculum.

Teach from an approved method

There are many methods and philosophies to teach technique and music literacy. Whether you teach using a traditional method like Suzuki or Kodaly, or from more modern method from publishers like Hal Leonard, Mel Bay, or Alfred Publishing we require all of our instructors to present their preferred teaching method.

Contract and commit to a set day & time

We require all of our instructors to commit to a day(s) & time based on their personal schedule. Students put their faith in their instructor and On Chord Academy invests a lot of resources into accommodating our teachers. We require teachers to be professional and set-aside and commit to their schedule.
