Music Together Teacher
GREATEST JOB EVER!! LOVE SINGING, DANCING AND WORKING WITH KIDS? Music Together may be the perfect fit for you! Music Together is an internationally known, research-based music and movement program for young children ages 0-5 years and their parents and caregivers. The 45-minute classes include a rich variety of movement activities, singing, chanting, and instrumental jam sessions. Help families learn to incorporate music into their lives, and teach them what a huge impact musical understanding has on all other learning. Watch as parents and kids experience the joy of family music. We are looking for teachers who are available 2-5 days a week, to teach 1 or 2 classes each day. Classes are mostly during the morning hours of 9-12, but an afternoon/evening class is certainly possible. Teacher candidates will need to be available to attend a 3-day training workshop in June in Davis. Paid co-teaching will begin during our summer session in June. Classes are held in Sacramento, Roseville, Rocklin, Folsom and El Dorado Hills.
Music Together classes are like teaching aerobics, preschool and hosting a party all at the same time. We are looking for teachers who are FUN, ENERGETIC, SOCIALLY OUTGOING and ENTHUSIASTIC, and have experience with children ages 0-5.
