Join The Teaching Team!

You think you'd make an awesome teacher? Someone who could inspire young (& older) minds to LOVE music?! 

If so - please read on. This could be for you.

Obviously a lot of qualities make a great private tutor but the most essential are:

1. An excellent natural musician (can read music but also play without)


2. An excellent communicator (be able to clearly teach what you know)


3. A friendly person who has confidence to talk to parents as well as students. 

Who are we looking for?

A really keen and switched on musician and/or aspiring teacher (at least 18 yrs old) who has been playing for a number of years and wishes to gain experience teaching or a newly qualified music graduate wishing to kick start their music industry career or you might be an experienced teacher looking for some additional work.

Octave8 is expanding it's programs in 2018 and if not a perfect fit for this teaching role you may well be considered for a range of in-school or after-school Primary & Secondary roles and/or Instrumental Teaching (1-1 or small group) at one of our locations in South West Sydney.


If you are a great musician with teaching ambitions or a seasoned performer or teacher looking for more opportunities this could be perfect for you.


We are an exciting new academy with many things to inspire great learning including student showcases, masterclasses,  AMEB RockSchool and Trinity examinations as well as a range of other materials so some grade exams experience or real enthusiasm for this would be advantageous.

New teachers usually commence employment at 2-6 hours work per week during term time at the start. We are expanding the academy rapidly so this will grow along with the enthusiasm and dedication of the chosen teacher.


Must have or be willing to obtain:


1. ABN


2. Public Liability Insurance
