Does teacher earns commissions?

Does anyone knows how much can a teacher earn from recommending a violin to a student from Synwin or Gramercy?

It depends on how much the violin costs I think. The higher the price, the higher the percentage.

yes, teachers will usually earn if they know the "boss" or anyone in the shop, but depends on how much is the instrument

Music schools earn the profit when they bring in instruments/books from the source at a discounted price and sells off at a higher price.

Not sure how much the teachers earn commission from the shops when they recommend, but for sure they do make a cut for each successful sale.

Since teachers earn a commission, are the instruments they "recommend" necessary the best for you or the best for their pockets? Guess that is something to think about...
