Upper School (Grades 5-8) Music Teacher
(Start Date, August 30, 2021)
Bank Street School for Children seeks a full-time Music Teacher for the 2021-22 school-year. We seek a dynamic, collaborative, and innovative music educator who is committed to the continued development of a cohesive K-8 music program in conjunction with our Lower School and Middle School music teachers.
Qualified candidates will possess a Bachelor’s degree, preferably in music or related field, and have at least 3-5 years experience teaching music. The ideal candidate will have knowledge of adolescent development, and recognize the joys of working with middle school students. The candidate must be able to play piano and provide vocal direction and instruction. Experience playing and teaching other instruments is desired. Willingness to collaborate with our auxiliary programs to ensure that after school music lessons are aligned with the vision of the music department is encouraged.
In collaboration with the music department, there are opportunities to support and develop music ensembles and programs after school or during non academic times. The Upper School music teacher is eligible to apply for stipends to coordinate any of our existing programs (Strings Ensemble, Wind Ensemble, Rock Band) or develop additional programming in response to student interest.
The School for Children is currently teaching music class in distance program mode for all students. While we hope we will be teaching in-person in 2021-22, the successful candidate will have the flexibility, creativity, and strategies to teach a music program both online and in-person. Despite the COVID-19 restrictions in vocal and instrumental music, we are still committed to developing and supporting a high-quality music program.
