Music Teacher

About Hearts to Art:
This unique camp brings together young people between the ages of 7 and 14 who have experienced the death of a parent to celebrate the healing power of creative play. Through the exploration and creation of theatre, music, and dance, Hearts to Art encourages communication and collaboration, fosters emotional growth, and provides friendship, compassion and community. Through interaction with young people who have experienced a similar loss, campers understand they are not alone. We encourage you to check out our website at to get a better idea of this program before applying.

Position Summary:
All teaching artists are expected to create, execute and lead programming in their primary disciplines to camp participants. For the music teacher, this includes planning and executing of lessons, workshops, and rehearsals for both the small music specialty group at camp and the large all camp song which opens our final show. All teaching artists are given a lot of independence in curriculum development and should be an expert at working with and encouraging kids of all ages and abilities. Note that within each session groups will be a mix of ages and backgrounds. All campers should feel included and valued within their work and there should be an understanding that the goal of this program is to create love of the art, not lifelong performers. Within that, we of course, want to create a wonderful show that campers can be proud of.

Salary Range:
$19 per hour
