Employment Opportunities

Join our team of highly motivated, professional, and caring instructors who love what they do! See why our Faculty members enjoy working with LAAPA.

We are now accepting applications for the 2017 School Year:

Are you tired of traveling to student homes (only to find they forgot you were coming or fight over who has to go first) or endless "new student leads" that never pan out from out of state companies? 

Looking for a fantastic place to teach music or dance within a locally owned and operated organization where your time, talent, and skills are highly valued by students, parents, faculty, and staff?

Then it's time to teach for New Orleans' largest, private school of music and dance. Since 1978, we've been helping students all across the New Orleans metropolitan area at our campuses in Covington, Harahan, and Mandeville to achieve real success in music and dance lessons. Since our inception. we've grown to an enrollment of 1,300 + students. We don't think we're the best because we're the biggest, but feel we are the biggest because our students and parents think we're the best place to learn music and dance.

As a company that is locally owned and operated by music professionals, we understand the obstacles, frustrations, rewards, and challenges that teachers face every day when striving to provide top notch educational services to their students. 

During our 39 years in the educational field, we have implemented and continue to develop a variety of unique systems to ensure that our faculty minimize time spent on administrative tasks and maximize their time spent in doing what they love.
