Explorer West Middle School
We seek an experienced and passionate educator to join our faculty as a Music Teacher. This is a unique opportunity to join a small, creative team of educators who are committed to helping middle school students recognize and develop their own capacity. Classes meet two or three times per week. Music is a required subject for all students each semester. The primary goals of our Music program are to give each student the opportunity to learn and achieve competence on at least one instrument, to sing as part of a chorus, to enjoy and appreciate music, and to develop the confidence to perform regularly as an ensemble. The part-time Music Teacher has traditionally been responsible for teaching all students, across experience and skill levels, a variety of instruments (woodwinds, brass, strings) in an ensemble setting, and leading all students in choral singing. However, we are open to alternative structures, such as having multiple music teachers that specialize in different areas (e.g. orchestra, band, chorus, or other options) and offering choices to our students.
