Brooklyn-based music education organization YoungVoices/BigSounds seeks charismatic, passionate music educators to join our 2018-19 team.

YVBS runs in-school and after-school music programs at NYC Elementary, Middle, and High Schools. Our approach is hands-on, experiential, and performance-oriented. We teach music fundamentals through vocal, percussion, and piano instruction, and then bring these elements together through ensemble performance.

Ideal candidates:

  • show an undeniable LOVE for working with young people
  • are strong and confident musicians, capable of teaching, directing, and (ideally) accompanying vocal & percussion ensembles
  • have teaching experience in a classroom environment, and demonstrate classroom management skills
  • are well versed in American and Caribbean popular music, old and new
  • have weekday availability, ideally with scheduling flexibility

We're hiring Lead Teachers, Assistant Teachers, and Interns. Experience is important for Lead Teacher placement, but we're also excited to train and develop candidates with less experience but plenty of charisma, talent, and ambition.

College level education is ideal but not required.
