Jackson Hole Classical Academy seeks a K–10th Grade Music Teacher
Jackson Hole Classical Academy seeks a Music Teacher with a passion for teaching music theory, vocal and instrumental performance, and music history to grades K–10. Ideal candidates will be familiar with classical pedagogy and able to teach voice, guitar, strings, and keyboard. At JH Classical Academy we do not view music as a “special,” but as a cornerstone of a liberal arts education. We teach music at developmentally appropriate levels, beginning with fundamentals and principles, then learning to analyze and imitate, and proceeding, ultimately, to the communication of truth, beauty, and goodness through music.
Experience with Charlotte Mason’s approach to habit formation is preferred.
A successful Music Teacher candidate will have the following prerequisite skills, credentials, and expertise:
- Knowledge of the methods and goals of classical education
- Knowledge of music history and theory
- Understanding of how to define beauty as a transcendental reality and music as a liberal art
- Experience in elementary music instruction
- (Ideally) an ability to teach voice, keyboard, strings, and guitar
The curriculum at JH Classical Academy is in the classical liberal arts tradition. The Academy believes that each student is created in the image and likeness of God and that the pursuit of truth always begins with a sense of wonder. As educators, we seek “to cultivate within our students the wisdom and virtue necessary to discover and fulfill their God-given potential and contribute to a flourishing and free society.”
Jackson Hole, gateway to both Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park, is visually stunning and offers an unsurpassed quality of life. Weekend and summer recreation opportunities abound. The attractiveness of Jackson makes housing difficult to find, so the Academy assists in that search.
