NYC music education YoungVoices/BigSounds seeks experienced teaching artists for our 2014-2015 team! Posting and link below:
YoungVoices/BigSounds, an NYC music education organization, seeks charismatic music educators to join our 2014-2015 team. Applicants should have experience developing and implementing music curricula in classroom/large group settings. Energy, creativity, and classroom management skills are required; scheduling flexibility is a big plus.
Most of our partner schools are under-resourced in terms of instruments and supplies, meaning that our curriculum has traditionally been built around choral, percussion, and keyboarding instruction and performance. Experience and skill in these areas is important, but ultimately we're looking to find the right people and then build around their strengths.
YVBS works with young people of all ages at 8+ NYC partner sites. We seek permanent part-time teaching artists (academic calendar commitment), but will potentially add artists to the team on a temporary/workshop basic. A degree in music education is preferred but not required; NYS certification is a big plus but also not required.
Using subject line "Teaching Artist Applicant 2014", please submit resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be creative with the cover letter- tell us about yourself as a musician, your experience working with youth, and your goals (both as a musician and as an educator) for the near and long-term future.
