If you teach music in Australia, this is for you.It’s an unavoidable prerequisite of our profession that we music teachers must insure ourselves against legal claims arising from the conduct of our lessons.
I was recently advised by my insurer that my premium for the next 12 months was going to be $390, for standard cover.
Then I remembered that I’d been talking to a recorder teacher at a repetitious Responding to Abuse and Neglect workshop two months ago, who mentioned something about a company in Queensland that combined professional insurance with instrumental insurance.I tracked them down with the help of Captain Google – lo and behold! – Music Teacher insurance for less than $200 per year. (Instruments are not covered, but still…)

I wish I made something more out of this recommendation than a warm fuzzy feeling.Happy teaching.Andrew
