Play Assured with Insurance

Like any other business, being a music teacher has many risks. Some risks may not be as obvious as others, but why not make sure you're covered no matter what. Working with kids everyday could mean that you double as a babysitter. With that being said kids are always running around and getting hurt.


Parents are always having high expectations and will sometimes accuse their teachers of wrongdoing if their child does not succeed. Music teachers are susceptible to thousands upon thousands of dollars in lawsuits and malpractice claims, so it’s always beneficial to get insurance. Insurance will mitigate the financial damage done by malpractice claims, and any other lawsuit that may otherwise force you into a financial wreckage.

Insurances like professional liability insurance and general liability insurance are highly recommended for this type of profession. Professional liability insurance protects you from your professional practices. For instance, if you were to persuade a child's parents into letting them take lessons by telling them you can help win medals and competitions, but when the time came the child ended up dead last, leaving the parents infuriated with you wanting to file a lawsuit. This is when professional liability insurance can protect you. With professional liability insurance your legal fees will be covered, not only that but any additional legal fees that may come as a result of a trial can also be covered. General liability insurance will protect you from any injuries or accidents that happen to either your property or to your clients. Accidents are inevitable and will happen no matter how many safety precautions you take. People trip and fall all the time but sometimes serious injuries can occur which may lead to major lawsuits. However with general liability insurance any legal required from a lawsuit will be covered and any other additional fees that may incur from a trial will also be covered.
