Becoming a Studio Teacher
Studio teachers are not contractually obligated to teach exclusively at Day Murray Music. You are free to teach at multiple locations. We respectfully request however, that you not use any advertising we have provided for you to take students you obtained from Day Murray Music referrals and teach them at a different location.
Accessing our studio rooms is easy. Because we will be issuing you keys to access the studio space, there is a $50.00 key deposit fee which covers any keys you may need. You will be expected to sign a key deposit form as well as a studio user agreement to teach with us.
After your studio has at least one regular student, Murray City requires that you have a business license to teach. You can find more information on what is required from Murray City at https://murray.utah.gov Teaching under an LLC, S-Corp, DBA or other such entity does not take the place of a Murray City business license. Murray City also does not allow business licenses issued from the state of Utah or any other municipality to take the place of a Murray City business license.
Teaching in Murray
Day Murray Music will help you advertise your studio. In addition to being featured on our website, Day Murray Music also features its studio teachers on our teacher wall at the main register. We also provide the names and phone numbers of our studio teachers to prospective students upon request. This benefit is only available for teachers who currently teach in our studios.
Day Murray Music does not take a portion of the tuition you charge your students, nor do we dictate what you charge for lessons. You are free to build and maintain your own studio and curriculum. When you decide your studio is full, you are under no obligation to continue to accept new students if you do not wish to.
Day Murray Music provides the use of our recital hall free of charge once per calendar year to our studio teachers to hold a recital. You are not expected nor required to hold a recital with other studio teachers. (You are free to network with other studio teachers, however, should you decide to hold a master class, or multi-teacher recital.)
Billing and Scheduling Options
Each month we will email you an invoice for the studio time you currently have scheduled. The payment is due on the 5th of each month. You can easily set up convenient auto-payments with our system as well.
With our convenient online scheduling system, scheduling additional time is easy. You are able to schedule time up to 21 days in advance. This allows you to self-schedule and pay as you go while building your studio.
