The department of Music is seeking applications for a Lecturer – Theory and Aural Skills. The successful candidate will oversee the theory/aural skills area and teach music theory/aural skills classes. Each section is a combined theory/aural skills class for four days a week, 4 credits. The candidate may perform other departmental duties as assigned by the chair.
The department looks to follow some of the suggestions expressed in the College Music Society’s Manifesto (edited, 2016)—https://www.music.org/pdf/pubs/tfumm/TFUMM.pdf
The class is taught in a piano studio with computers and the goal is to integrate theory, aural skills, and piano to strengthen each area. As the manifesto discusses, we hope that this class can inspire creativity through composition and improvisation. We are open to curriculum changes and want someone to make this a class that every student looks forward to taking.
