Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. Those who have worked for fewer than five years take home a median salary of $36K, and workers with five to 10 years of experience earn a higher $44K on average. For Music Educators, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $47K. Music Educators who have acquired more than 20 years of relevant experience earn significantly more than folks with fewer years on their resumes; the average income in this veteran group is $69K.
