What Makes Us Different?

We do actually care.
 
Hello, potential future team member; it's Jack here.
Music changed my life, it saved me from a lot of trouble growing up, and I'm here to pay it forward.
And this is why and how I built Level Up Music School & JHGuitarSchool.
I asked myself If I were to do it all over again and start learning from scratch, knowing what I know today, how would I want my music lessons to be?
I would want them to be fun, engaging, life-changing and a safe place to express myself, meet people my age I can connect with and share this passion.
And that's how I developed everything with that vision in mind.

Everybody deserves the gift of music.

Final Words
To summarize, joining the family means:

1. A constant flow of new students to keep schedules as full as possible:
Over the course of the year, students can move or quit. This can leave a teacher with gaps or holes in their schedule. Most students register and start lessons in September. Most music schools only advertise in late August and September for new students.
At our school we spend a lot of money on advertising and marketing year-round to keep our teacher's schedules as full as possible. Each year we spend thousands on advertising to constantly attract new students. We are continually registering new students even during typically slower registration months like May or June.

2. Extras are taken care of – your only responsibility is to teach and inspire!
We have full-time administrators to handle all of the "details" of teaching. From scheduling to collecting fees or arranging concerts, these details are handled by our administrators, not the teacher. This means the teacher is free to focus on teaching and not get bogged down by the administration.

3. Your time is respected and you are paid whether or not students show up:
Teachers are paid for lessons whether students attend or not. If a student misses classes for school trips, holidays or sickness, the teacher is still paid.
If a student does not pay for their lessons or has an uncollectible debt, the teacher is still paid. Our priority for our teachers is to make sure that your time is not abused and that your teaching day can be as productive as possible...

We are very selective in who we hire at Level Up Music School & JHGuitarSchool. Potential teachers undergo a live musical performance review, a detailed interview process (not like a corporate job, but with a heart-to-heart conversation), a criminal background check since you will work with vulnerable people (kids) and adults, and a reference check.
All of these are to make sure we both are a great fit for each other. You're joining a family, which means both ends should be happy and satisfied with the quality.

Sure, we have a laid back atmosphere (some would call it "high class hipster") but we also expect all of our teachers to be rockstar instructors. All in the hopes that we can help create little rockstars.

Our motto here is "Have fun while being the best" - does that fit you?
