Indian Hill Music School, a community music school in Littleton, MA with a faculty of 60+ professional teaching artists, has an opening beginning in the summer for a part-time Group Ukulele Instructor as part of our outreach efforts at the Boys & Girls Club of Fitchburg and Leominster. The role involves beginner group ukulele instruction to elementary- and middle-school age students.
This position entails summer teaching on Monday and Wednesday afternoons, from 1-2pm, from Monday, June 24 through Wednesday, July 31, working with students age 5-7. The vacancy also calls for school year weekday teaching once per week, two hour-long periods from 4-6pm; the particular weekday is yet to be determined, but will be consistent from week to week. School year students are grouped by separately age: 8-12 and 13-18, respectively.
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.
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 an annual faculty meeting and the completion of occasional clerical tasks. Timeliness and reliability, as well as strong communication practices with both students/families and school staff, are essential.
