The VMTA’s recommended teaching rates are widely recognised by the teaching profession throughout Victoria. This fee schedule is used as a guide by VMTA members, schools, music festivals, eisteddfods and members of the general public.
These rates are minimum recommended base rates, and do not include any on-costs such as superannuation, annual leave, or workers' compensation insurance. Individual private studio charges and school-based employment arrangements are subject to negotiation by either party.
The rates are revised once a year at the VMTA Annual General Meeting. Rate increases reflect annual CPI adjustments and may also take into account other factors such as national comparisons, industry standards and historical increases.
