ST CECILIA SCHOOL

General Music Position
Start date: August 2018

With a deep commitment to integrated arts in education, St. Cecilia School is beautifully situated near the Bishop Arts District, and just a half mile down the road from The Kessler Theater, in historic Oak Cliff, (Dallas), TX. We currently are seeking a general music teacher for the 2018-2019 school year.

At St. Cecilia School, the the general music teacher will:

*Teach 1st-8th grade music classes daily.
*Lead, and provide instrumental accompaniment (piano or guitar), in the children’s liturgy.
*Incorporate the Orff instruments into the children’s liturgy.
*Rehearse the choir (selected 3rd-5th graders), 2-3 periods a week during the school day, and
accompany/direct the choir at the weekly children’s mass.
*Lead the guitar club two days a week after school.
*Oversee end-of-year inventory, and proper care and use of all the instruments. This includes any small
repairs needed, and any changing of strings on the guitars.
*Direct the all-school Christmas program.
*Assist with the all-school Cinco-de-Mayo program.
*Rehearse and lead music for first communion, confirmation, and graduation masses.
*Share parking lot duty once a week.
*Collaborate with faculty to integrate music into other subject areas.

Instilling a love and appreciation for music through a comprehensive and sequential music curriculum is the key to a successful program, (movement, singing games, and “rhythm band” for primary grades, recorder, drums, and xylophones in upper-elementary).

Music in the middle grades is mandatory, not an elective. Drumming and guitar, along with continued work in Orff is the curriculum for middle schoolers.

The pedagogical approach at St. Cecilia School is Orff based, and we provide a large variety of instruments and resources including tubanos, assorted “rhythm band”/hand-percussion, Orff instruments, recorders, and guitars.

Fluency with the Kodaly method is also important, due to the importance of song in our faith tradition.  While we do have music text books, it is expected that the focus of our music curriculum is based in the actual making of music, rather than relying on reading about or doing worksheets in, music.  Singing, conducting, and the ability to accompany classes (with piano or guitar) are essential.

Resumes may be submitted to Ms. Candice Barbosa (principal) cbarbosa@stcecilia1935.org
