    Hi everyone, just moved to London from Australia, I teach piano and trumpet, as well as classroom music specialising in music appreciation.

    Obviously MusicTeacher.com is a great way to find students, any other advice on how to find work / students? Is gumtree used for this kind of thing here?

    Yes, Gumtree is certainly a place where you can promote yourself as a music teacher forming a nice income stream of students. In addition I would really recommend introducing yourself in local music shops and really getting to know the staff, as well as connecting with other music teachers locally – word of mouth enquiries really still count for a lot of teachers enquiry streams. If a teacher cannot take a student on they might be happy to point them in your direction – especially if you specialise in a specific area of piano tuition. Becoming involved in such a community also means that you can direct students who might be more suitable with another tutor over to them – keeping both students and teachers happy. Hope this helps🙂 my biggest advice would be to introduce yourself to the people in your local music tuition community, great place to get the ball rolling & also met some really interesting people along the way!
