Group Cello Instructor

Description:

Indian Hill Music School, a community music school in Littleton, MA with a faculty of 70+ professional teaching artists, has an opening in the fall for a part-time Group Cello Instructorto teach a small group of beginner cello students in the third and fourth grade at Florence Roche elementary school in Groton from 3:30-4:15pm once per week. (The instructor has input on which day of the week it will be; the day will be consistent each week throughout the school year.) There is the potential for more teaching work to be added over the course of the school year, and a very strong likelihood of an increased load the following school year.


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 must be comfortable working with students of all ages and ability/experience levels.


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 faculty meetings 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.

Qualifications:

Ideal candidates should have a degree in music and a minimum of three years of teaching experience, and must be comfortable working with students of all ages and ability/experience levels.

It is also the first community music school in the country to offer bedside singing for healing through its Threshold Singers. Last year, IHM's outreach activities served some 7,000 people in its service area.
