A music teacher gives lessons on how to play instruments, or gives singing or voice lessons. Some teachers work in schools from elementary to high school levels, and teach many students. Other teachers give lessons on an individual basis, and may work out of their homes or at a store.

Some popular jobs include teaching piano, violin, guitar, or voice. At schools, these teachers are responsible for directing the school bands, choirs, and orchestras. They may also teach appreciation, theory, or composition classes to advanced students.
