Lisa Rae Music Studios, LLC (www.LisaRaeMusic.Com) is a leading provider of music education in Western PA, and seeks additional teachers for its current and future Music Together® programs. Music Together is a international program with a research based curriculum developed for the education of very young children. It requires specialized training, accreditation, and subsequent mentoring under a licenced teacher at an approved center.
The Music Together and Babies Classes are two components of an overall, successful business that offers private and group music lessons for children, adults, and students with special needs in areas surrounding the PGH Airport Corridor (Western Allegheny, Southern Beaver Counties).
Our company started in 1994 under the direction of Lisa Rae Vaughan and brings music programs directly to its families at community centric locations (churches, performing arts centers, music stores, after school programs, in home, and electronically via Skype).
The highest consideration will be given to trained Music Together instructors who are looking for a long-term relationship with a professional, well-established business.
The ideal candidate has:
a) Successfully completed and passed the training workshop no earlier than 2010 (i.e. between 2010 and 2013) and is not currently working in another local PA Music Together Center. If trained before 2009, a refresher three-day workshop must be taken in 2013 (FYI, a training workshop in the PGH area is happening Feb 8-10, 2013 and in Hopewell, NJ Feb 15-17, 2013.). Training classes are available throughout the US monthly.
b) A profession or self-employed business that permits them to “substitute” for a primary instructor on short notice (e.g. illness, accident, etc.) for daytime classes including weekends, Sundays; must have reliable means of transportation.
c) The willingness to engage in an apprenticing opportunity to complete mentoring under a senior instructor and the desire to attend classes (with or without children) free of charge for the purposes of observing and learning from our senior instructor (Certification Level 1, Babies Classes, 5 years teaching Music Together.)
d) Qualifications which could possibly contribute to other business segments of Lisa Rae Music Studios, LLC (e.g. teaching private lessons in piano / voice / woodwind / string / guitar), office administration (customer service, database and accounting, marketing, website management, etc.)
e) A current PA Act 33/34 clearance (Child Line Safety) and clean criminal background check and/or equivalent FBI clearance.
f) A cheerful, diligent attitude. Must be deadline and appointment time conscientious and a hard-working team player willing to work closely with the center director and the senior Music Together instructors who provide direct mentoring.
g) Pluses are: PA teaching certifications, or formal music performance education, or extensive “hands-on” music teaching experience. Training or knowledge of students with Special Needs is particularly helpful (physical, mental, Autism spectrum, etc.)
