Employment

The Front Porch is hiring new music teachers and support staff! We’re seeking professional teaching artists from a variety of musical backgrounds and genres. We love building long-term relationships with our students. We value our warm-hearted, friendly atmosphere, and our mission of connecting everyone through music.

Perks of teaching at The Front Porch:

  • We provide comprehensive administrative support. You be the artist; we’ll take care of the rest.
  • We provide a ton of teaching resources: full curriculums for group classes, libraries of chord charts, notated music, and pre-recorded instructional videos.
  • We schedule regular opportunities to engage with other teaching artists as well as teacher trainings and other professional development opportunities.
  • You can take any of our group classes for free!
  • You’re an employee, not a contractor.
  • Maintaining 25+ hours/week qualifies you for health/dental insurance.
  • Our school schedule mirrors that of the local public schools, so winter and spring breaks are built in.
  • We pay our teachers as professionals: $43-65/ hour wages.
