What makes KAMP Music unique?

  • We want to take care of our teachers, hence we changed from following the school district calendar to an all year-round school, so our teachers have continuous employment all year.

  • Our guaranteed base salary is above industry standard of only paying if there is a student.

  • KAMP takes care of the administration tasks, student recruitment, enrolling/onboarding/billing so our teachers can focus on teaching and relationship building with KAMP families and fellow teammates.

  • We are a non-profit organization focusing on developing a supportive culture of team, versus individual private teachers.  KAMP Music is a community where teachers can support each other.  We have also developed a series of Peer-to-Peer workshop, where we learn, grow and share from each other.

  • We are open to creating extra volunteer or career advanced opportunities for our teachers who are interested in developing passion projects.  This can be done through our outreach programs, partnerships that help us deliver

  • We have almost 6 weeks of blackout dates (where you get to relax and recharge).3 of those are paid vacations. 

Come and join our team to make magic and make impact!
