Teaching Pay and Employment

MU promulgated rates for freelancing music tutors, advice on holiday pay and your employment rights.

Last updated: 19 January 2021

As a freelancer, it is not always easy to know what you should be charging compared to others. That’s why the MU sets recommended self-employed teaching rates that are aligned with a classroom music teacher salary. We also have teaching contracts that you can use.

If you are an employed music teacher, we can provide advice on issues such as holiday pay and we can also assist you if you are faced with redundancy.
