Description

Indian Hill Music School, a community music school in Littleton MA, with a faculty of 60+ professional teaching artists, has an opening in the fall for a part-time Elementary Music teacher for our weekly (Mondays) Songs in Motion program for children ages 3-4 and 5-7. Indian Hill Music faculty members are responsible for: 1) inspiring and sharing their love of music with their students; 2) setting a high bar for students’ levels of technical skill and musicality; 3) clearly communicating expectations and working toward shared goals; and 4) advocating for their students to engage in additional IHM programs to deepen their musical development and their commitment to their studies. Ideal candidates should have a degree in music and a minimum of three years of teaching experience, and be comfortable working with all music learners between the ages of 3 and 7. The teacher will be responsible for designing and implementing his/her own curriculum for the classes. The program should incorporate singing, use of pitched and unpitched rhythm instruments, movement, and an introduction to basic music theory in order to provide a foundation for the student’s future private and group music learning. Indian Hill offers many ancillary benefits to our faculty members, including a variety of paid professional performance opportunities and funding for professional development (by application). Regular weekly teaching throughout the school year is required, as is attendance at two annual meetings and occasional clerical tasks. Timeliness and reliability, as well as strong communication practices with both students/families and school administrators, are essential to this role.
