The music teaching assistant provides assistance to the primary music instructor. This involves leading in-class practice and skills work, working with individual students, musical performance during school performances, and classroom instruction when the music teacher is absent. Extra responsibilities may include light administrative and organizational work. Applicants with experience or significant interest in a variety of different musical genres including classical, jazz, rock, pop, electronic, and folk will be given priority.

For all positions, we look for candidates who enjoy working with colleagues in a collaborative environment, who are flexible and creative, who will fully engage in the life of the school, and who are committed to fostering an inclusive and equitable community.
