Private music tutors provide one-to-one and group instrumental, vocal and theory training for children and adults. They typically offer tuition through private lessons held in their own home or in their pupils' homes, but many are also engaged as peripatetic teachers by schools or colleges as well as by private or publicly funded music schools and arts organisations.
Some private music tutors also supplement their incomes by performing and playing music for events such as weddings and funerals or by training and conducting choirs and choral groups.
