We make your life better! It’s just another way we separate ourselves from the rest!

Music Teacher Qualities And Qualifications

At Forbes Music, we look for teachers who possess important and meaningful qualifications and professional experience to be a successful music instructor. A background in music education, a degree in a music related field, as well as experience teaching multiple instruments either privately or in the classroom are a few noteworthy qualities that often lead to success. The five critical factors that we look for include consistency, commitment, communication, connection, and capability. These are five qualities that make up great music teachers and role models, and the benchmark we use when vetting candidates.


We work with great communicators who are personable, fun, and connect well with students of all ages.


All teachers have a deep background in music education and a degree in a music related field is preferred.

We Offer Great Opportunities For Music Instructors

We encourage applicants who are comfortable working with both children and adults (and adults who act like children). Students can range in age from 3 years old to senior citizens, and beginners with no experience to advanced students. Often students enjoy exploring multiple instruments, or families may have multiple children, each pursuing a different instrument. Teachers with experience as dual principals or high level experience teaching multiple instruments are encouraged to apply and can often more quickly build a roster of students.

It’s important for teachers to have experience teaching different styles of music, from Baroque through Classical, Romantic, and 20th Century music, including contemporary styles like pop, rock, jazz, songwriting, and the ever popular Disney songbook.
