4 Year Degree

We seek an experienced Music teacher for a part-time (0.25 FTE) position beginning in August 2018. Candidates should have experience teaching music at the high school or college level. A bachelors degree in music or a related field is required. A Masters of Music or a related field is desired.

The mission of the Performing Arts Department is to cultivate the imagination, creativity, passion, and aesthetic sensibility of each student, balancing theory and practice, process and product, structure and free exploration. We view the student as an emerging artist and creator first. All performing arts courses are strongly experiential. Lessons in history and theory are integrated into the doing.

The Music Program is housed within the Performing Arts Department and consists of six music courses: Foundations of Music Performance, American Roots Music, World Music and Rhythm, Contemporary Music Seminar Jazz/Soul, Contemporary Music Seminar Rock/Blues, and Advanced Chamber Music. Other music electives we have offered over the years: Digital Music Production and Music Theory.

Music classes are composed of large and small ensembles. The focus is on developing performance skills. Students form “bands” within a class that can sometimes stay cohesive for two or three years. Students learn the fine art of group dynamics, group problem-solving, and artistic collaboration, choosing pieces together, arranging music, and developing a group voice and work ethic.

A quarter-time music teacher at Marin Academy will teach one of the above yearlong courses. Duties to include overseeing two public performances by the class per year.
