To teach guitar lessons from my own home part time do i need to get a license or some kind of permit? I live in Canada. Any help or advice would be very appreciated.

not really.

just post flyers somewhere (GC i know would work)

and have people call you up, invite 'em over, teach 'em some stuff, charge him some cash, be on your merry way

the only problem you may be liable for is paying tax on the money you earn but that's it realy, then there's also the fact you may meet somewise guy wanting to see certificates about your ability to teach

judging on how liberal and stupid the canadian government is, yeah you probably need some kind of license

No you don't need anything. You don't have to pay taxes because you're not running a business/offering a service in a professional situation.

Do you wanna sneak by, or do you wanna do it legally?

mbe PM axemanchris. He's a Mod in the MT forum.
He lives in Canada and seems to know a good bit about the laws there.

What the hell? That's dumber than dirt.

The service is education.
It's "professional" because you're being paid.

Your logic is warped.

It's not professional unless he has a degree and is a professional in that field, and is doing it as his profession.

I'm fairly certain you don't need one, but look into your local laws.

I'll just add (somewhat importantly) that if you will not be reporting this income so that it can be taxed, do not accept personal checks. They are basically reciepts for your service and possible future proof against your prior fraudulent activity.

Haha, anyone else misread this title at first glance?

lolwut? That part makes no sense at all. Why did you even type this?

No, no, no.

A plumber is a professional. Rare few have degrees. But they do require licensing.
And they DO pay taxes.

You're thinking a very narrow usage of the word professional. Doctors, lawyers, etc. That's fine for conversational usage, but when dealing with the laws the word has a much wider meaning.
