APAP believes that pay transparency is a critical step toward pay equity and benefits both the job seeker and the employer. For those reasons, we are now requiring that employers include a salary range in all new job postings.
Postings that are backfilled from another association’s career center may not include salary information.
The Peabody Preparatory is pleased to announce an Adjunct Collaborative Pianist position in the Voice Department at the Peabody Preparatory. The successful candidate will join a highly skilled and dedicated voice faculty and two other staff pianists as part of a vibrant and active department committed to helping all students achieve their potential; we embrace the novice musician as well as the serious student aspiring toward a career in music.

- accompanying voice lessons, classes, studio classes, recitals and other Voice Department events
- meeting independently as necessary with voice students for rehearsal and coaching
- potential opportunities to accompany students for outside competitions and events.
- Bachelor's degree in music and/or music education required. Master's degree or equivalent experience and training preferred.
