Positions: Suzuki Flute Instructor

Location: Brooklyn, NY

Position Description

The Brooklyn Conservatory of Music (BKCM) seeks a part-time flute instructor with a growth

mindset and eagerness to learn. Join BKCM’s Suzuki team of 25 faculty in our robust program

through a weekly teaching position of 4–6 hours on Sundays for the 2024-2025 academic

calendar (September–June).

BKCM Suzuki comprises 250 students across six instruments plus 40 students in our Suzuki

Early Childhood Education classes.

For either role, it will be possible to expand the schedule in subsequent school years, as well

as to add summer teaching hours. Leadership positions within the Suzuki program and other

job growth opportunities may become available.

Salary

The base pay rate in 2023-2024 is $53.00/hour for private lessons, $60/hour for group/theory

classes, and $40/hour for meetings and prep time. Updated rates for 2024-25 will become

available in June.

About the BKCM Suzuki Program

BKCM is located in beautiful Park Slope, Brooklyn where we have a committed community of

supportive and involved Suzuki parents and caregivers.

In our Suzuki program, students attend weekly group and theory classes in addition to their

weekly private lessons. Parents of beginners and transfer students attend 15 hours of parent

class during their first year, in addition to attending the first six weeks of classes with their

own full-size instruments before students begin in November. Beginners are typically ages

four to five but can be younger or older. We offer ongoing professional development for

faculty, community-building events, myriad performing opportunities for students per year,

opportunities to be involved in chamber and string orchestras, and summer camps.

We are a short walk from the subway: B/Q to 7 th Avenue & 2/3 Grand Army Plaza.

Expectations and Scope of Work

● Teach private lessons and group and theory classes for children ages 3.5 to 18,

depending on the schedule assigned.

○ Most new teachers will teach pre-twinkle beginners ages 3.5–5 and will also

teach students who have studied for any length of time in our program.


○ Teachers are asked to teach group classes that incorporate music theory

(Music Mind Games familiarity is a plus).

○ Most of our faculty teach to some degree during July and/or August.

● Plan and prepare curricula and materials for classes and lessons.

● Prepare students for and attend two recitals and two group class performances per

school year.

● Use flexibility and creativity when working with different types of learners.

● Attend paid faculty meetings.

● Submit timesheet data every week.

● Maintain timely communication with administration, faculty, and families.

● Offer reasonable support to families in your studio both in and outside of class time.

● Approach teaching as a lifelong learner, committed to self-education about best

practices and professional growth.

● Support colleagues both in and outside of your department and expect support.

● Commit to DEI frameworks and self-education, including interest in repertoire

outside the canon, teaching a plurality of learners, working with all types of families,

and elevating fundraising campaigns for financial aid.

Qualifications

Candidates should have a Bachelor of Music degree or similar, be an active member of the

SAA, and have at least units 1–4 registered with the SAA. Ideally, the candidate will have also

taken SPA and Practicum or will have plans to do so soon. However, the best candidate may

not yet have met all of these qualifications.

All candidates must demonstrate a love of teaching children of all ages, fine attention to

technical and musical detail in their teaching approach, and a warmth and understanding of

all children and families. Experience with, or an interest in teaching music theory, including

the Music Mind Games curriculum, is a plus.

How to Apply

To apply, email a letter of interest, a current resume, and a writing sample that addresses

your teaching philosophy to Suzuki Program Director Nora Friedman at hiring@bkcm.org.

Please include “Suzuki Flute Faculty” in the subject line.

We invite you to send a link to one or several 5–20 minute videos of yourself teaching a

representative private and/or group class, but this is not a requirement for a first-round

interview.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
