Lower School and Middle School Music Teacher

Green Acres School seeks an experienced full-time teacher of lower school and middle school music. The music program asks students, individually and collaboratively, to read and to play music with a variety of instruments. Students play chimes, bell plates, and bells; they play recorders and Orff instruments; and they learn to read musical notation and to identify musical symbols. Students also gain an appreciation for a variety of musical styles and cultural traditions from around the world. Older students have the opportunity to join instrument ensembles, sing in a choir, participate in a musical theater production, and learn guitar. Applicants should demonstrate experience in hands-on methods of instruction as well as in more traditional approaches to learning. Teachers use best practices in classroom management while building strong relationships with individual students. The expectation for professional collaboration is high, both to coordinate efforts as a teaching team and to build integrated cross-curricular units. The successful applicant should be able to teach a variety of instruments, lead an instrumental ensemble and/or choral group, and serve as artistic and musical director of a school-day musical theater production. Middle School teachers also serve as advisors to a small group of students and as liaisons to their families. Likewise, each Middle School teacher attends a two-to-four day overnight trip with students.
