If you are applying for a music teacher position, then you have to build or upgrade your resume. The resume writing standards and trends are changing rapidly therefore resumes built a couple of years ago are outdated and have a little chance to get an interview today.

Music Teacher Resume Tips

• Shorter is the better – this rule applies to all resumes since the employers don’t have time to read long resumes. Highly relevant and very short resumes succeed.

• Make sure your resume has a strong accomplishments section to show how well you performed as a music teacher.
