The Music Department is seeking a colleague with a strong commitment to students, collegiality, and community partnerships.

Past graduates of EWU’s music program can be found in various positions, including but not limited to: public and private school music education (all grade levels), college educators, liturgical leadership (performing and conducting), music therapy, music theatre direction at the community and professional level, community choir direction, guest artists, guest conductors/clinicians, festival adjudicators, composers, and authors. Evidence of applicant’s continuing pursuit of updates in Vocal Science, openness to teach healthy vocal production in all singing styles, and flexibility in practical application of teaching methods will also be considered.

The faculty member hired for this position will be welcomed into an academic community dedicated to cultural diversity, community engagement, and social justice.

Teaching: a typical workload for this position will involve 22.5 credits per academic year, subject to department needs. Responsibilities could include teaching courses in the areas of Applied Voice, Choirs, Diction, Vocal Pedagogy, Aural Skills/Sight-singing and Opera Workshop.

Additionally, all faculty are expected to engage in effective teaching and assessment of student learning.

Key Requirements include:
• Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) or Equivalent Vocal Performance
• College level teaching experience
• Demonstrated ability to apply a culturally responsive and flexible approach that is supportive to the diverse needs, including universal accessibility, of our students, faculty, staff and the public.
