The Mozart Music and Movement Director will team-teach two groups of students in kindergarten and first grade. Each group will receive general music instruction twice per week on alternate days. Both groups come together on Fridays with all Mozart faculty assisting. The Music and Movement Director will follow the JQOP Curriculum and work in collaboration with Support Teaching Artists to select songs/dances, plan daily lessons, prepare for concerts, and ensure that students learn appropriate strings technique, music notation, and orchestra culture. Additionally, as JQOP equally supports social development and musical growth, the Music and Movement Director will ensure that social-emotional skills are developed within the fabric of lessons, including, but not limited to, leadership, kindness, self-control, and perseverance. The Music and Movement Director will work with all JQOP staff and teachers to ensure the highest quality learning experience for all students.
