The Music Department seeks qualified adjunct faculty to teach Introduction to Music Performance to Music Industry majors.
Qualified candidates must have at least 5 years of professional experience in the music industry, or relevant education related to teaching music performance, and a Master’s degree or equivalent experience. Some teaching experience is preferred.
This course is a required course in the BS in Music Industry. It will provide a basic introduction of the typical performance skills utilized by pop/rock performance groups. Students will participate in a variety of workshops and performances and learn how each popular instrument is played (including guitar, bass, piano, drums, strings, and wind instruments as well as percussion workshop). In-class rehearsals will teach performance skills such as how to develop a stage presence, using body language, handling a microphone, and dealing with unexpected situations during a live performance. The course culminates in a final concert.
Although we may not have openings currently available, the department will accept applications throughout the year to build an adjunct pool to teach in its Bachelor of Science in Music Industry. When a teaching vacancy arises, we will consider the submitted applications in an effort to staff the course.
