We use all Independent Contractors. As working musicians most of our staff independently contract for both performing and teaching all over the place, and they are using their own equipment, etc.

However we are not a “school” but rather an association of teachers who run their own private studios and we only contract teachers for group classes. That is, students pay their private teachers directly for private lessons, and only pay “us” for the group classes.
