If you get paid to teach music, direct a church music program or are a college student studying music, you most likely qualify for Easy Rebates.
Here are a few questions we've been asked.
Yes! The program is open to anyone around the globe who meets the qualifications.
Yes, you may! You can have one account for your school or music studio and one account for your church. However, you will need to have a different email address for each. You may also choose to have one Easy Rebates account for both. It’s up to you how you want to manage it.
No, you will not earn double rebate credit if you qualify in more than one category.
Yes, you can teach part-time and qualify for Easy Rebates. As long as you are paid to teach your students, it does not matter if you are a full- or part-time teacher.
No, we do not require either a teaching or music degree to qualify for the program.
Yes, music students qualify for the program. And to make it easy, you do not need to fill out another application when you become a teacher. Your membership will carry over when you become a teacher.
Yes, you can teach out of your home and qualify for the program.
It depends. The issue is whether the focus in the position is to teach music or to lead a group. If you are a band director or choral director for an educational institution, you will qualify for Easy Rebates. If you are a director for a band or choir that charges for performances (such as a community-based choir or band), you will not qualify. If you are a choral director or band director and you are not working for an educational institution but believe that you should qualify, we encourage you to provide details in your application that would enable us to understand the teaching focus of your position.
Yes. As long as you are paid to teach music, you qualify. There is no restriction as to the type of instrument or the level of the student that you teach.
No, you do not. You can be full-time, part-time or volunteer. You just have to lead at least one group.
Any kind! You can direct adult choir, children’s choir, handbell choir or praise and worship band.
No, you do not have to be a college music major to qualify. You simply have to be enrolled in a college music class. Whether music is your major or minor or you're taking a music class as an elective, or singing in choir or playing in an ensemble for fun, you can sign up for Easy Rebates!
No, your membership will not expire! We want to encourage lifelong music-making.
No, you do not have to fill out another application. Your membership will carry over.
