Early childhood music teacher I Ms. Clara's Mini Musicians (an independent music school)

Laugh and sing and play for a living! Sound like something you’d enjoy? I urge you to read on. This is a seriously super fun and rewarding job, and I can’t wait to find the perfect fit for this position and welcome you to our joyful community! And please note: musicality, personality, and dependability count more than previous work experience, so if this job description is calling to you, please don’t hesitate to reach out to learn more.

Seeking an energetic, dedicated, and responsible teacher/facilitator, with a passion for music, play, and working with infants, young children, and parents. 8 – 12 hours / week in a preschool setting and/or a “mom and me” class setting. This is a perfect part-time job for singers / actors as you will utilize your singing and performance skills in each class. Weekday AND weekend morning (Saturday and/or Sunday) availability is required. Competitive pay.
Job Basics:
•  Facilitate high-energy parent-child and/or preschool music classes. (Full teaching curriculum will be provided.)
•  Must have a happy, playful, and positive personality and enjoy singing, song dramatization, and movement.
•  Must have the ability to engage children 4 months – kindergarten through songs, movement and various age-appropriate musical activities.
•  Must be able to learn and retain songs and chants (along with matching movements) efficiently and correctly.
Skills & Qualifications: 
•  Experience with babies and/or young children is a must (personal and/or professional). Dependability and personality count more than previous work experience for these positions.
•  Pleasant and tuneful singing voice (all classes are sung a capella so a strong musical ear is required; applicants with vocal training are strongly preferred)
•  Commitment to on-going learning and program development
•  Must be enthusiastic, engaging, upbeat, fun-loving, and patient, and have extremely strong interpersonal skills
•  Must have reliable transportation, as you may be required to travel to multiple locations in the western suburbs to teach.
To Apply: 

Please visit www.JoyfulLearningCenter.com/now-hiring to submit your application and availability. As is indicated on the webpage, I also ask that you email your resume and a brief cover letter to Clara@MsClarasMusic.com explaining why you are a great fit for this type of early childhood music program. Please attach a capella recordings of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and “Happy Birthday to You.” The recordings do not need to be professional (on your phone is fine!). I am simply listening for a pleasant and tuneful voice, as our classes are led without any accompaniment.
