Infinity is looking for music instructors to join our team immediately. We are looking for voice, violin, piano, drum set, and guitar instructors with experience teaching children. We are also looking for a variety of other instrumental teachers but our primary referrals are for the above listed. We prefer instructors who have experience working with children and adults with developmental disabilities. Applicants should be confident in their musical skills, be a team-player, and demonstrate high levels of organization and responsiveness to texts, emails, and phone calls. We are looking for instructors who can commit to a minimum of one-year of service and who are dedicated to building their music and teaching skills.
Hours: The number of hours per week is based upon the referrals that we receive. The majority of the referrals we receive request 4:00pm-7:00pm Monday through Friday or during the weekends. This position offers some flexibility with regards to initial scheduling but does require the employee to maintain a regular work schedule (employees may not schedule the student on a different day/time each week).
Schedule: The schedule is determined based upon student and teacher availability. Employees may work as little as one lesson per week. We are looking for teachers who are interested in growing the number of lessons they teach each week. Consistent appointments are required.

As a member of our team you will be expected to report to our clinic at least one (1) time monthly for a team meeting. The time is TBD.
Location of Students: Our music instructors define the area of the state in which they are willing to travel in. The greater the traveling area, the more likely the employee is to receive consistent students. Students are seen in home, at our clinics, and in other locations.
Salary: This position is paid on a pay per visit model. This means the rate paid for each lesson is inclusive of prep time, travel time, and team meetings. Our instructors are paid between $30.00-$40.00/hr.
