We offer great training and personal development, all program materials and full support to get you started on your musical teaching career. All you have to do is enjoy singing and dancing and having fun with young children.

Mini Maestros teachers generally work between 9am and 1pm. Afternoon teaching is also sometimes available. Teachers are paid competitive hourly rates.
