Guitar Teachers Now Earning More Money Than Ever Before

March 2, 2017

In a private music tuition fees survey conducted by the ISM (Incorporated Society of Musicians) the results show there has been a significant rise in earnings for music teachers across the whole Country. This is helped by the fact that My Guitar Lessons services are assisting even more guitar teachers to get more students.

In September 2016, most private guitar teachers charged between £27 and £38 per hour with the mid-point being £30. The latest survey results continues to show that teachers in Central London charge more than teachers in Greater London who in turn charge significantly more than teachers in the South East and East Anglia who charge more than those in the wider UK. Elsewhere in the UK there was less variation.

The majority of those who did increase their fees raised them by between £1 and £5 per hour. The average increase reported was £2 per hour. In Central London, the starting rate has increased by £5 when compared with last year.

A high proportion of survey respondents (43.6%) expected to increase their tuition rate over the 12 months to September 2017, with 1 in 5 respondents expecting to increase their fees by £4 or more.
