ELEMENTARY MUSIC TEACHING ARTIST

Position Summary: 

East Bay Center for the Performing Arts is currently seeking enthusiastic, skilled, and creative music teachers to join the School Partnerships faculty for the 2022-2023 academic year. The Center partners with the West Contra Costa Unified School District to serve under-resourced elementary schools in Richmond by bringing music education into classrooms where it otherwise would not exist. 

We aim to provide music programs that incorporate developmentally-appropriate instruction around singing, rhythm, beat, tempo, movement, improvisation, and the playing of pitched and unpitched percussion instruments. We encourage and support teaching artists to incorporate global and local music into their teaching to connect students to their community and the world. Our music teaching artists possess expertise in a particular area, instrument, or style of music, and are committed to offering high-quality, trauma-informed arts education. Ideal candidates are musicians who have a strong teaching background, are passionate about working in under-resourced schools, enjoy working with both large groups of students, have strong classroom management skills, and are patient, dynamic, flexible, independent, and punctual.
