I love working as a voice teacher at the School of Rock! It's such a fun experience. The atmosphere is great as well as the kids, parents, and coworkers. A typical day includes lessons in your area (guitar, bass, drums, etc). I've learned to individualize my teaching style and use more alternative styles of singing and techniques in comparison to my 10ish years of classical training! Management is wonderful, however, there are some problems with corporate and franchises not meeting eye to eye, especially on company budget, new equipment, etc. The hardest part of the job is taking in new students and having to learn all of their needs in what you are teaching, but it is rewarding once you do. For the most, this job is very satisfying and enjoyable.
Atmosphere, students, independent lesson planning.
Lack of teacher/instructor training, hard to fulfill full time requirments, no raises, small business budget per school, and the higher up people are not involved enough to see things like the need of new furniture, equipment, etc.
