[Subscription] Teacher Discount

It would be great if Spotify offered a teacher discount for Spotify Premium.  Increasingly I am using Spotify in my classroom, but it is frustrating to have to constantly monitor it and jolt across the classroom to mute the ads.  I am happy to support the artists I listen to by paying for Spotify Premium, except that with ever more budget constraints, especially to arts programs, it is not feasible to shell out $120/yr from the school's or my own personal budget.  I believe that if a teacher discount was offered, we would also be able to promote the use of Spotify with our own students thereby increasing Spotify's users.

Hey folks.
We wanted to post an update, since we made some changes to our ideas process.
Typically, we won't announce information about new subscription options, third-party integrations or new countries in advance.
We’re always working on improving the Spotify experience, but we don’t have any more information to share at the moment.
The best place to keep an eye out is on the

I'm Down.  So when will this happen?  How do we help make it happen?


This is a great idea!  As a music teacher, I use spotify many times a day but my funds are limited.  I would love it if Spotify offered a discount to educators!




So any update? I cannot find teacher discount.  I see students can get it for $5/mo.  

So far, no. But I could see it happening this year!

Ditto to all the comments. I use it in the classroom (free advertising to college students because they inquire as to the music source) and am frustrated with attempts to mute ads. $5 I'd be willing.


Is there any response to all the educators asking about a discount? Many times a company gives students and teachers discounts. I hope Spotify can do the same!


I agree with everyone, that this wold be a great idea.


I agree with all of the above comments. I too, am a teacher and music is a great outlet for students. But I would like just to be totatlly honest. Come on ... I love my students please do not get me wrong, they are like my own children. And like so, I NEED to have an outlet too. Music is one of the things that I really enjoy, but with a teacher salary and a family to support this is just not within my reach. And yes the free version is pretty ok, and yes it will do the job (poorly) but it helps. Yet having the premium would make such a differnce, I tried it and hands down it is one of the best things I could have done (for myself) in a long time. I am a mom and we usually forget about ourselvess often. I am not saying give it to teachers for free but the same discount that students get would be awesome. Crossing my fingers that this happens. 


An educator discount would be fantastic!
