Montessori Academy seeks music teachers

Isthmus Montessori Academy, a school in Madison near the airport, would like a piano teacher to give private lessons after school one or two afternoons / nights a week. This will offer the opportunity to build your private lesson studio – you would decide your own lesson rates and curriculum, etc. We would provide the space, a lovely Steinway console to use at school, and we would have *at least* 6-8 children from ages 4 to 12 ready to sign up right away.

We would also love to have a strings teacher work out a similar arrangement, but would not be able to provide instruments in that case; students would need to rent their own. However, we do have a number of older students interested in starting strings and the space for lessons after school.

Our school is set to become the first public Montessori school in Madison in 2018-19, and currently enrolls students from 2 months to 15 years. You can learn more about us at our website:

Please contact me if you’re interested in giving piano or strings lessons, or if you have questions.

Best wishes,
