At LJMA, we offer a unique opportunity for advanced teen musicians to get job experience through our teacher-in-training program! Advanced teens may apply to train under our Director learning how to set homework, bond with a student, hold students accountable, which pieces to set and how to submit them for exams and auditions. They learn the ins and outs of maintaining a job and have something worthwhile to add to their college application. After a few months of training they take on students of their own while continuing to train under our Director.
This set up allows us to charge much cheaper rates to families for these lessons allowing students who are either brand new or unsure whether they want to study the subject to test out the lessons and see if it is a good fit for them.
It's a win-win for everyone!
