There are so many reasons I love working for Mason Music, from the great studio space and paid time off to incredibly fun and diverse recitals. What sets them apart from other companies is their professional atmosphere and office staff. I never have to worry about billing or scheduling and that allows me to focus solely on my students.
Mason Music is a community of kind, creative people who challenge me to be a better teacher and musician. As a company, Mason Music has always invested in helping me succeed as a teacher and develop as a person. It is definitely a fun and positive environment to work in.
One of the main reasons I love Mason Music is getting to see the evolution of a rock star. We get to see kids coming in nervous and excited for their first lesson, then move to performing on stage in Rock Band League, and finally seeing the finished product at the recording studio. Totally inspiring!
I love what I get to do and, more importantly, the people I get to do it with. The teachers and staff are some of the coolest, hard-working people who genuinely care about the students that walk in our doors each day. Mason Music is truly a family and I couldn't be prouder to be a member.
The first time I stepped into Mason Music I was surprised at how genuinely happy and friendly everyone was. From the time each student arrives until they leave, Mason strives to create a welcome environment conducive to learning. And the best part is that all of the hard stuff is taken care of by our capable staff so I get to focus on the fun part: teaching and making music.
Mason Music is an amazing place to teach. As teachers, we know that we have the support system needed to help our students succeed in achieving their musical goals. As performing and working artists, Mason Music gives us the freedom and support to pursue our own individual careers as well. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
Mason Music has the best work environment, community atmosphere, and team spirit of anywhere I've been employed. Everyday, I get to see students of all ages take steps forward on their musical journey. I love partnering with our teaching team, working together to make musicians in our community.
Mason Music is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity and work to create an inclusive environment for all employees. We're looking for highly qualified, skilled, personable applicants and all-around good folks to join our family.
