TRUMPET FACULTY MEMBER
HOURS: Part-time (Saturdays), in-person, hourly
COMPENSATION: Commensurate with experience
START DATE: July 2022
Groton Hill Music Center is the region's premier non-profit center for outstanding music education,
professional performances, and community engagement programs. As we prepare to move to our new
home in Groton, MA in September, our team is seeking a part-time Trumpet faculty member.
This role involves private lesson instruction with students of all age and ability levels, across all relevant
styles. Summer teaching days are flexible; school year teaching will take place on Saturdays (morning and
afternoon), and will include leadership of a student Brass Ensemble from 11:30-12:30 each week.
PRIMARY AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY:
All of our faculty members are entrusted with developing students of all ages and ability levels. The role
has considerable room for growth by way of building ensembles, classes, and a culture of excitement
around brass pedagogy and performance at Groton Hill Music. The ability to inspire students while
demonstrating and instructing strong instrumental technique is required.
Groton 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 and special events to deepen their musical development and their
commitment to their studies.
Groton Hill Music 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 fall faculty
meeting, hosting at least one Voice Soirée recital, 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.
Ideal candidates should have a degree in music and a minimum of three years of teaching experience. The
ability to model and teach proper technique, and to integrate elements of music theory into one’s
lessons, are essential. The ability to model and teach improvisation, and/or to teach lessons on low brass
instruments, is preferred but not required.
HOW TO APPLY:
Please submit a cover letter, resume, and salary requirements to Pete Robbins, Director of Education and
Non-Orchestral Performance Programming, at email@example.com by Friday, June 10. Submissions
without a cover letter will not be considered. This position will begin in July, 2022.
