Below are answers to some of our common questions
How much can I earn?

How much will it cost me?
The prices start from just £9 per week and that includes your website, email address and membership certificate. There are substantial reductions available if you wish to pay a proportion or the full fee up front (please contact us for more details). That means if you do your 20 hours a week your PROFIT will be around £27,312.00, that includes payment of tax and national insurance.
Can’t I do this myself?
A lot of music teachers make the mistake of putting up a card in a shop window, charge enough for some beer money, they have no professional branding that’s recognisable by their target market. The tax office could see the advert and because the music teacher is not keeping any financial details on their income, and could face a hefty tax bill. The Council also need to know you are running a business from home. Then you will need to take the time to write lessons for all different skill levels you will get. This will mean several hours of research time for each lesson. You will also need to know how to convey the lessons to your students. You’ll also need to create a structure to show what you have been teaching and plan for that student over the coming weeks, if not they will drop out very quickly as it will show that there’s no consistency to the lessons
