Music Teachers

Grow Your Gift Conservatory Music in the Fort Walton Beach area is intentional when selecting instructors to serve our musicians. Our instructors understand this is to be a long-term commitment and that turnover is detrimental to our mission.

Our instructors don’t teach as a side gig to fill their time or to only earn extra money on the side. They are still very active in our music community and have chosen their career path to make a difference in the lives of each student musician they come in contact with. They are dedicated and often conduct their personal lives around their teaching schedules, not the other way around. Although teaching at Grow Your Gift is a part time job, every staff member exhibits a full-time commitment to our mission and to our students.

All instructors have an extensive background in the instrument(s) they teach.

We strive to maintain a manageable and consistent schedule through an unlimited make-up lesson policy.

Our level of communication with families is streamlined through a knowledgeable, on-site administrative team who work to serve the needs of our current and prospective customers.

Our musicians and their families can expect consistency, transparency, opportunities to perform, and an exciting and inclusive atmosphere.
