2. Spread the word about good learning techniques

There is a wealth of techniques that can accelerate your learning in all subjects, including music. These techniques are sometimes used in STEM subjects, but they haven’t found their way into music education yet.

We make sure that all tutors who join us will get a deep understanding of how these techniques and methods can be used when learning an instrument so that they can use these techniques in the lessons and pass on the knowledge to their students.

As a result, not only will the student learn their instrument faster and more thoroughly, but they can also use these techniques when learning their other school subjects, accelerating their progress in those subjects as well.

How it all began

Beyond Music began with the discovery that it’s difficult to find a music tutor that ticks all boxes. If you go through an agency you are likely to be either overcharged or get an underpaid and therefore uncommitted tutor.

 

If you find a freelance tutor yourself who set their own prices, it can be really difficult to find a good tutor. And when you’ve finally found a tutor who seems good on the surface, how do you know that they are using good educational techniques and develop the student in the right direction?

 

That’s really difficult to get right. Which is why we needed to create Beyond Music to solve all these problems.

 

Now we are hunting down the best music tutors in London to create a platform where you can find the best tutors in London. The best part is – all these tutors are enthusiastic about using great educational techniques.

How are we different from a traditional agency?

Agencies usually function in one of two ways… 

1. Taking a Cut From The Student

They take commission from the student on top of what they already have to pay for the tutor. Since they take this commission for every single lesson, this results in very high fees for you. Usually more than what most people can afford, or want to afford.

2. Taking a Cut From The Tutor

The other way that an agency can function is that they take commission from the tutor. This is cheaper for the student, but leaves the student with another problem. After a while, most tutors feel a sense of unfairness that the agency will keep taking a cut even though they are just sending invoices. Once they have found a student for the tutor, they have done most of their job. The tutor feels underpaid, and would be much happier if the student came directly through them.

This has huge repercussions for the student

The student is now left with a less committed tutor. As a result of being with an agency that takes ongoing commission, they will care less about giving high-quality lessons. The fact that they care is essential for giving you high-quality teaching.

We have noticed this issue and decided to do something about it.

Unlike agencies that take commission for every single lesson for as long as you’re with them, we don’t take any ongoing commission from our tutors. It’s just not fair. We are a matching platform where tutors and students can find each other. At most, we take a small fee for their first 5 lessons for every new students. After this, we stop taking commission.

How are we different from other listing sites and online sources?

The benefit of listing sites

Many listing sites remove the middle man that takes commission. The money goes directly to the tutor. It will end up being cheaper for the student since no one charges anything extra on top of the tutor’s fee. And the tutors will be content and committed since they are fully paid without anyone taking commission from them. Great!

There is just one problem…

Can the tutor quality on listing sites be trusted?

Agencies can to a much better degree guarantee that the tutors are of high quality. On the other hand, listing sites have little control over what kind of tutors register on their website. To register yourself on a listing site, the tutor’s generally do not have to prove that they are a good teacher. They only have to prove that they have experience in their subject. And that’s only half of the tutor’s job. A good player is not always a good teacher. These listing sites end up with a lot of profiles. But to separate the wheat from the chaff, you might have to search for a long time. It’s too easy for mediocre tutors to register.

The best from both worlds

One thing that makes Beyond Music so different is our recruiting process which is similar to that of an agency. We are a lot more selective and take great care in recruiting only the best tutors that we think music students will love. Music tutors who want a profile on our website have to apply. They are then being checked by our experienced educators who look out for their teaching skills as well as their experience in the subject. That’s how we make sure that all tutors on our website have something really valuable to offer their students.
