Benefits of teaching music online

There are plenty of big benefits to teaching music online. For example, you can have a much greater number of students by offering your educational services over the Internet as opposed to only those students you can reach in person.

Online teaching is especially great for private music teachers for kids and young adults. Some parents who are averse to the idea of their children being online may likewise have similar feelings about the idea of having their children taught online. While Internet safety for kids is indeed important, an increasing number of parents are also turning to online music tutors to ensure their children get the one-on-one music education they need because of the opportunity that online teaching can provide.

One of these opportunities is that you aren’t necessarily limited to the music learning curriculum you might have to stick to if you were to work for a private or public educational institution, meaning students can get exposed to concepts that fall outside of an official curriculum.

On top of that, you could potentially make a good amount of money teaching music online. According to ZipRecruiter, the average online music teacher earns $75,000 per year or $36 per hour. It’s no stretch to say that online music education is more profitable than it ever has been, in large part due to an increased interest in the subject.

In conjunction with the growing popularity of e-learning platforms, the global market for online music education is expected to reach $9.2 billion by 2030.

So even if you don’t want to teach professionally, this could be one of the most profitable hobbies that make money. The bottom line: if you want to teach music successfully, bringing your classes and one-on-one tutoring sessions to the online sphere makes a lot of sense.
