Safety is our top priority—always. We want our students to learn in a safe and relaxed environment.
Background checks include:
If you see this badge on a teacher's profile, that means they've completed a Background Check confirming:
Current full legal name including middle name.
One piece of government-issued ID.
A Police Vulnerable Sector Check or the equivalent from their province or state.
While we do our best to ensure all personal music teachers in our community will provide safe and professional lessons, these checks can only tell us about that person's past. We cannot guarantee a person won't break the law or act inappropriately. It is best to communicate and interact with a potential teacher in the manner you normally would when meeting an unknown person in any other way.
Private music teachers with a Background Check badge aren't in any registry of the following charges*:
Sex offender or prostitution.
Fraud or ethical charges.
Theft and trespassing.
* Note that not all counties report all offenses.
