hey all,
  does anybody know what an average university piano teacher makes and how they're paid?  i'm considering get a masters and pursuing this route.

if you're asking how much you're going to get paid you might not want to do it :)
If I'm not back in 24 hours, call the president.

Scot is available for skype jazz piano lessons (and google hangouts, phone call, etc...)
Use the contact link at the top of the page.
in the uk i guess, for a basic lecturer, the salary would now be something in the region of £30,000 to £35,000.  for a visiting lecturer (vl ie hourly paid with a contract only for that course) i guess it is now about £38 per hour.
i had a friend from college who went on to get his m.mus. from cincinnati, and then he got a teaching gig at a state college.
he was an associate professor or some such thing, but at a 2-year college.  university professors usually have doctorates.
i'm sure he was on salary, probably monthly, but i have no idea how much he got paid.  salaries vary according to the region and the institution.
of course it probably varies from school to school or even person to person, but around here to teach applied piano at a university pays $50-60 per hour and you are an ajunct (non-employee sub-contractor - no benifits)  i'm guessing tenured positions are a better deal :)
well, that's better than most computer programmers make per hour!
but they probably get more hours :)
hey,  if you're really, really lucky you might get a 'contract of employment' in a uk university (rare but still out there i believe for the'required' subjects) in which case you get a reasonable salary and some of the rampant 'rights' that go with these 'contracts'.
come to think of it i don't think 'music' is a (currently and politically) 'required' subject here.  but would you want to work over here, ref my post in 'humor'.
if you have to ask you can't afford to do it.
if you have to ask, you can't afford to do it.
