Careers at The Music Shoppe

The Music Shoppe is looking for highly motivated individuals to help the business grow. Started in 1961, The Music Shoppe served the needs of Bloomington-Normal's music community. Today we have three locations in Normal, Champaign, and Springfield, and our community stretches from I-80 south to Effingham.

The heart of our business is band & orchestra; The Music Shoppe works with over 400 schools across Illinois. We also carry guitars, drums, sound equipment, pianos, print music, and more. Additionally, we have the area's largest repair department and lesson studios. We truly are a one-stop shoppe for any musician.

The Music Shoppe has become the area's first choice for all-things-music due to our exceptional staff. As we look to expand upon the quality of our service, we are seeking talented, self-motivated individuals.

Orchestral String Luthier

The Music Shoppe, a NAMM Top 100 dealer and long-standing member of NASMD, is seeking an experienced orchestral string luthier for the Normal, Illinois location. Serving downstate Illinois since 1961, The Music Shoppe has a history of excellent repair service and support for orchestral string musicians.

The home of Illinois State University and Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington-Normal is a vibrant source of repair business with 2 outstanding Schools of Music, numerous professional players and teachers, and orchestral programs in all public and some private schools. The community is diverse and arts supportive; large enough to offer many amenities, and about 2 hours from Chicago or St. Louis for broader offerings in the arts.

Lesson Studio Teachers

We are currently searching for teachers for the following instruments in our Champaign lesson studios:

  • Low Brass (Trombone & Euphonium)
  • Guitar
  • Flute

Studio teachers are required to pass a background check and maintain a weekly student schedule with a high degree of professionality. Teachers are hired as independent contractors, and as a result have the freedom to design their own lesson program, set their own rates, and maintain their own schedule. 

If you have experience teaching one or more of these instruments, please send your resume to our Champaign Lesson Studio Administrator, Dustin Norder at dustin @ the music shoppe (dot) com.
