Teacher FAQs

Q: What is the difference between the licensing fees and the support fees? Why two fees?

A: Licensing fee is a one time fee that can be paid monthly or all at once. It includes in-person training seminars, teacher support, teaching materials, certification program, continuing education, and marketing tools.

Support fees are paid per student per teaching month. Support fees give personal access to our skilled mentoring teams, online teacher resource center, website exposure, office and administrative support, and semi-annual training meetings.

 

Q: Why the need for insurance and how much?

A: Liability insurance helps protect your business from claims that it caused bodily injury or property damage to someone else. The liability coverage must be a minimum of $500,000 and must name Let's Play Music as additionally insured. Teachers are required to have liability insurance for their studios. You can find your own insurance, or we can provide references for approximately $18-25/month depending on your state.

 

Q: Am I an employee of Let's Play Music?

A: No, you are not an employee, you are licensed to teach the curriculum. Teachers collect tuition directly from enrolled students. Teachers are independent and declare their income and pay taxes on that income. Teachers do not receive any paycheck from Let's Play Music.

 

Q: How do taxes work as a Let's Play Music teacher?

A: Since teachers are not direct employees of Let's Play Music but an independent business owner they are required to declare income and pay taxes accordingly. Let's Play Music cannot give any legal or tax advice since many factors will influence your specific needs and decisions. Consider consulting with an accountant.

 

Q: Do I need to be an LLC or sole proprietorship?

A: It is not required but completely up to you, the teacher. As a teacher for Let's Play Music, you are now a business owner. There are tax accounting and legal protections you may want to consider as you begin. Whether you form a sole proprietorship or a limited liability company (LLC), or a corporation, there are significant income tax consequences that flow from each. We cannot give any legal or tax advice since many factors will influence your specific needs and decisions. Consider contacting an accountant who will closely look at your circumstances and recommend the best set up for your specific situation.

 

Q: Do teachers recruit their own students?

A: Yes, teachers are solely responsible to recruit as many students as they want to teach. Let's Play Music offers marketing tools, images, social media posts, mentoring, and more to help teachers recruit. Ultimately, the teacher will contact the parents directly and provide them with the teacher's unique enrollment link. Parents enroll through the Let's Play Music website into the teacher's specific class and purchase materials for that class as part of the enrollment process. Teachers distribute materials to the students just prior to classes beginning.

How Much Money Can You Make?

"More Money in Less Time"

Teaching private piano lessons was beginning to be too time-consuming. I now am making more money in less time since I can teach 4–7 students at a time in my classes.

"Why reinvent the wheel?"

When I first found Let's Play Music, I had been thinking about writing my own music curriculum. Then I discovered that all the work had already been done for me! Why reinvent the wheel? I love that the lesson plans are easy to follow and the lesson materials like posters, manipulatives, workbooks, etc., are ready to go with minimal prep.
