"Nicole, you have an amazing voice."
Early Childhood Music and Movement Teaching Opportunity
I’m looking for enthusiastic, qualified people to join the Making Music Meaningful team.
Please note that the following program description may be modified depending on the successful candidates' abilities:
Dedicated to providing high quality early childhood music education, Making Music Meaningful emphasizes the joy derived from making music with others without the use of pre-recorded music. The carefully-developed curriculum, based on the Royal Conservatory of Music’s principles of early childhood music education, is delivered to small groups in a nurturing, child-oriented environment. Class activities contribute to the development of the whole child by stimulating young children’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical development.
Active participation in songs, finger plays, bounces, rhymes, instrument exploration, listening and movement activities introduce parents or other caregivers and their babies, toddlers or preschoolers to the joy of making music. Children and adults alike are invited to play hand-held percussion instruments and they also see and hear how several instruments - which may include the ukulele, the guitar, the violin, the flute, the recorder and the xylophone - are played by the instructor, as well as a hand drum and tambourine during the movement activities. Each of the five terms between September and August offers a lovely new repertoire of music and musical activities that participants can also use at home.
9:00 - 9:30 - set-up
9:30 - 10:00 - 14-26 months
10:10 - 10:50 - 26-54 months
11:00 - 11:30 - 0-14 months
11:30 - 12:00 - tear-down
The ideal candidate(s) would:
- Be friendly and enthusiastic
- Have a good singing voice
- Have access to a car
- Be very reliable
- Have experience with or an affinity for working with young children
- Be physically able to carry boxes of instruments and to set up tables and chairs
- Have a clean police background check
- Be able to play simple songs on one or more instruments (guitar, recorder, xylophone, ukulele, violin, flute, clarinet…)
- Be fluent in English; French and other languages are an asset
- Have pre-existing knowledge of children’s songs – or be a quick study
Even if you are missing one or more of the above, I still encourage you to apply!
If you or someone you know would be interested, please submit your resume by e-mail. Training will be provided and compensation information will be provided to interested candidates.
Thank you in advance. I look forward to hearing from you!
