If you have always wanted to become a private piano teacher and provide music lessons to students in Singapore, then read on to find out whether this career choice is worth it or not!
First of all, whether a job is worth it or not is usually based on two things – do you like the ups and can you accept the downs of the job, and how much money do you actually think is enough.
First of all, here are some advantages you gain in your career when you become a private piano teacher in Singapore. You will be able to set your own schedule. Do you dislike working at 5pm on a Friday afternoon? Done. You don’t have to take a student at that timing. Do you love working at 10am on Sunday mornings? Done. You can work during that timing as long as you can find a willing student. You will also be able to set your own rates. Of course, this is still within limits as if you set it too low, you are undercutting yourself, and if you charge way too high, you will find it slightly tougher to get enough students to sustain a reasonable living. You will also be able to select where you want to take your jobs from. Do you stay in Jurong? Then perhaps you want to only teach private piano students in the west part of Singapore so that you can teach more students due to a shorter traveling time. If you prefer working with kids, you can work with kids music lessons. If you like working with adults, you can specialize in teaching adult music students only! You essentially get freedom when you become a freelance private piano teacher in Singapore even if you work under an agency.
Second of all, here are some disadvantages of the job. If you are not capable of getting students by yourself, or refuse to join an agency, then chances are, you will struggle. You are self employed as a piano teacher in Singapore, and no one is going to guarantee your salary at the end of the month unlike that of a fixed pay job. Also, it is your duty to collect the money, teach and provide good customer service to your piano students so that you can keep the students long and keep getting referrals from the agency as they only want to recommend music students to actually good teachers with great reviews.
Third of all, whether becoming a private piano teacher in Singapore is worth it or not is also dependent on how much income you think is reasonable. If you want to buy 10 Lamborghinis, it’s probably the wrong choice to become a piano teacher. However, if making a comfortable $5000 to $6000 a month is good enough for you, then you should definitely become one! You get that kind of nice income while still having a lifestyle freedom due to being self employed!
