Music Teacher Duties & Responsibilities
Music teachers may have a variety of duties, depending on what they teach and where. School music teachers generally perform the following duties:
- Teach choir, band, orchestra, or a combination of all.
- Work with students on plays, concerts, and other events that include music.
- Assign practice and other music-related homework and test students on their knowledge.
- Keep grades, meet with parents, and share progress reports.
- Perform other functions the same as teachers, such as school and lunchroom monitoring.
As a school-based music teacher, they move among classrooms providing music instruction. The exact curriculum they cover is dictated by the school district and the grade levels they teach. Usually, there is a heavy emphasis on vocal instruction and music theory.
Some schools have elective music classes that are more advanced, such as teaching instruments and working more on music theory. Music teachers also may be responsible for devising school musical productions or coaching a school band.
Some music and instrument shops have in-house music teachers. This setup can work in a few different ways:
- Independent music teachers may rent space in the shop, like an independent hairdresser rents salon space, and set their own prices.
- Workers in the shop may teach music on the side in the shop and share income with the business.
- The business may have dedicated music teachers on staff.
These music teachers may handle vocal instruction, instrument instruction, or both. Lessons may be private or group.
