Title kinda says it all, really.

I teach five students the piano, I do get cash from it, it's a little part-time thing. Wondering whether people would think it would be a good thing to put on my UCAS Form Employment Section? I mentioned it in my Statement, but it would make it more obvious if I put it in my employment section.

Any opinions - do you think I should? Not sure whether it really counts as employment - I guess it is part-time though.

Cheers.

On the Employment section of the UCAS application it uses the phrase "paid work experience" so I would put it on there, but others may think differently.

It doesn't really matter if you include it because unis only really care about that section with mature applicants. However, as long as you got paid you can include it.

nobody cares about that section unless you have very limited qualifications

I would say go for it. Some universities might not be so interested, but others might, and considering it isn't going to detract from your application you might as well. It demonstrates your ability as an entrepreneur, a teacher, a student, your ability to present yourself professionally etc. It can be a real boost to an application and might give you a competitive advantage. It also won't take you too long to add to your application, can be a talking point for your interview, and presents you as a well-rounded person.
