Landmark Preschool’s Westport Campus has an opening for a part-time preschool music teacher beginning with the 2019 – 2020 school year. We are seeking candidates who have experience working with young children and are looking to share their love of music. The successful candidate will use a variety of instruction strategies to teach the students the concepts and enjoyment of music at an age-appropriate level consistent with development expectations.
The Preschool Music Teacher will create a flexible educational program for students age two to five and provide a class environment favorable to learning and personal growth. Additionally, the music teacher will establish effective rapport with students, motivate them to develop skills, attitudes and knowledge needed to provide a good foundation for the enjoyment of music, balanced with understanding of rhythm, tone and other age-appropriate and music-related skills, in accordance with each student’s ability.
The music teacher must establish positive relationships with other faculty and staff members and work to coordinate music classes with themes and areas of learning for each age level. In an effort to keep parents informed of the learning and enjoyment of the music classes, a periodic newsletter will be prepared for distribution.
