Full job description

Bucketeers is an after-school enrichment program designed for children, pre-K through 6th grade. The Bucketeers instructional framework involves developing a foundation in rhythm, playing with a steady pulse, learning a variety of patterns, participating in movement activities, and developing hand-eye coordination, all while having fun. Children play along with a diverse set of music: children’s, pop, rock, jazz, and world beat. Each class doubles as a rehearsal building towards an end-of-semester performance in front of friends and family. Bucketeers instructors are provided with the necessary training and support to manage classroom activities with confidence.

Clear and consistent communication between instructors and parents & school staff allows for everyone involved to be on the same page. Positive energy and enthusiasm are important ingredients for teachers to create an ideal learning environment. Instructors can expect to teach two to five days per week normally between the hours of 2 to 4 PM. The exact pay per hour depends on the enrollment at each school.

Bucketeers instructors are energetic and passionate about music and teach percussion to young children. Teachers are required to think on their feet as they implement instruction at an entertaining and fast-moving pace.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Two-year college degree or higher
  • Experience in early childhood education
  • Experience in teaching music classes to groups of children
  • Proficient writing skills
  • Mastery of one or more musical instruments (Percussion is ideal but not mandatory.)
  • Semester long commitment
  • COVID vaccination

NOTE: A passed LiveScan background check and an Early Childhood certification (ECE accreditation) is a plus.


  • Attend and complete three to six hours of free trainings on the innovative Bucketeers instructional framework.
  • Teach two or more classes per week. Sessions are eight to 15 weeks long.
  • Set up and pack up equipment.
  • Clearly communicate with school staff, parents, and Bucketeers administration.
