Come Work With Us

We are always looking to talk to instructors who are passionate about Piano, Guitar, Drums or Voice!

To work at Minnesota School of Music is to work at one of best music schools in the Twin Cities. One of the keys (pun intended) that makes the Minnesota School of Music so great is our instructors – a team of individuals that really care.

Our instructors are humble, hungry, and human. That is – they put others before themselves. They are looking to learn more, do more, be more. And they relate to people well.

About the instructors we seek:
You should be:

  • Excited to teach kids about music
  • Outgoing, warm and engaging
  • Encouraging and patient
  • Organized and flexible

Your qualifications and skills include:

  • Bachelor’s Degree (can be in a field other than music)
  • 1 or more years of private lesson instruction
  • Experience working with youth (volunteering is a plus!)
  • Strong verbal communication skills

More than anything, you must love people and love working with kids
