Depending of the branch owner
Audio Visual Head Technician/ Musical Director (Former Employee) – Florida – May 10, 2017
The company has a great view on how to teach and be creative with all the students, also provides one on one and group sessions to where the students form groups and tour their local area and play live shows.
I started as the director, I help build the school as it wasn't open at the moment of hire, owners were very quick to ask for help to build stage and paint and sound proof all rooms but paid that time at the teaching hourly rate, I was promised 2 different pay rates depending on the job being performed (teaching groups/individuals or setting up to play shows) but was played on certain things where I wouldn't get paid the correct way or the right amount on the job.
Owners had no musical background and would tell the music teachers, most with several years of experience, how to do their job and would usually be in a way that, given our experience, we knew it wasn't the correct way to do things, because of this, the location started loosing all the good employees (including my self) and ended up being a day care with little kids instead of the teens and adults that were originally there with the good performing teachers.
The company overall is great, just have to know which location to go to and be sure the management and owners have the student's and teacher's best interest in mind.
