About this video 

Andrea, a music teacher and children's entertainer, describes the challenges of her job, what she likes most, her key decisions, how to get into the industry, and work-life balance.

Job Title: Music Teacher & Children's Entertainer
Employer: Self-Employed

Job Summary: Self-Enrichment Education Teachers

Job Description

Self-enrichment teachers instruct in a variety of subjects that students take for fun or self-improvement, such as music and foreign languages. These classes generally do not lead to a degree or certification, and students take them voluntarily to learn new skills or gain understanding of a subject.

On-the-Job Training

None

Additional Info

Self-enrichment teachers generally need to have some experience in the field in which they teach. For example, a pottery teacher should have some experience in designing and making pottery. They can get this experience through formal work experience, but they can also get it through volunteer work or personal hobbies. Formal education programs may prefer to hire workers who have some teaching experience.
