Employment with Music Kids

2019/2020 school year, IN-SCHOOL VIOLIN TEACHER for individual and small group classes
Ability to also teach piano or guitar a plus!
Music Kids is an instrumental education program offering private and group lessons on-site at our partner schools. We are looking for enthusiastic educators interested in teaching very young students, ages 3 and up, violin, (and piano or guitar). Ability to teach more than one instrument is a wonderful asset, but not required.
The Organization:
Music Kids exists to enrich and improve student development by bringing musical instrument education programs into the local school environment.
Our philosophy:
– The study of a musical instrument should be a core part of a child’s learning experience, right from the start.
– Integrating instrumental studies into the academic curriculum from a very young age is key to achieving well-rounded academic success, enhanced brain development, self-confidence, and personal fulfillment.
– Instrumental studies are far more than an extracurricular activity, to be crammed in alongside karate and soccer and everything else. We take an integrated approach, making lessons a natural part of the student’s academic, social, and family life.
To date, Music Kids works with over 30 schools throughout DC, MD, VA, PA, CT and IL. The organization is looking for qualified individuals to work as Music Kids Faculty Members on-site at its local partner schools.
