Through a Third Party

What you need to know

On this page you will find information about:

  • Third party organisations
  • Teaching agencies
  • Where to look for teaching work

Any organisation who organises the teaching for you or introduces you to students is acting as a third party.

These include schools, music services, music hubs & cooperatives, agencies, music schools etc.

Teaching agencies

There are many teaching agencies operating to sell music teaching to schools and parents. We strongly advise our members to enquire carefully about the terms and pay before signing up with these organisations.

While most are fair, there are some exploitative agencies for instance charging parents £48 per hour and giving the tutor £18 per hour. We recommend that agencies should not take more than 15 - 20 % of the amount charged.

As with all work for third parties we recommend members check with the MU first, before they sign. If in doubt, wait and check your contract with us.

Organisations sometimes advertise in some of these websites and journals -
