The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music provides information on performing and instructing opportunities to students who are available to teach or perform solely as a convenience to the public and in response to public demand. All individuals providing music instruction or performing are acting as independent contractors. Their services are not endorsed or guaranteed in any way by the School or The Regents of the University of California, or their respective officers, employees, and agents; the School does not conduct background checks on listed providers. Additionally, neither the School nor The Regents is a party to any such arrangements. Any disputes that arise are strictly between the provider and the retaining party, who retains such services at his/her/its own risk.

Thank you for your interest! Our students have provided instruction and performances across musical genres, from Western classical, opera, and music theater to jazz and world musics, including Near East, China, Irish, old-time bluegrass, mariachi, and more. We also field requests for composition services, such as commissioning a new composition, soliciting student participation with a television, film or theatrical production, and receiving theory and composition instruction.

All inquiries regarding the hiring of student instructors and performers must be submitted by email. Upon review, we will forward your email as-is to our students. Therefore, we urge you to please include ALL pertinent information.

  • For instructors: Please specify the instrument, the age and experience of the student, and the teaching location
  • For performers: Please indicate which instrument or type of group you are looking for, the performance location, date, hours needed, and the type of music requested
  • Please note: students will call requesters to negotiate compensation directly. The school of music is not an instrumental booking agency and we do not become involved in compensation agreements or other employment negotiations. Thank you for your understanding.
