String Teaching Artist – North Adams and Pittsfield

20 hours/week. The String Teaching Artist will be the Lead Teacher for our North Adams site (M, W, F) and a supporting Teaching Artist in our Pittsfield site (T and Th). This teacher will lead beginning and intermediate school-aged string ensembles and lessons focused on age appropriate skill development for young musicians and building community through ensemble playing. The Lead Teacher will schedule sectionals, pull out lessons, and work with the Artistic Director (and other teaching staff) to choose repertoire.  This teacher must also be able to engage and support youth families who are struggling with poverty and other stressors.   Experience in violin, viola, or cello, teaching music, and a belief in music as a vehicle for social change is a must. Flexible schedule with some nights and weekends is required. Send cover letter and resume to Paula McDermott, 18 Degrees, 480 West Street, Pittsfield, MA 01201 or email pmcdermott@18degreesma.org.
