This is a Permanent, Full-time position.Category: Other
State/Province (or you can select Remote): San Diego, CA
Position: Applied Voice Teacher, private studio
Deadline: September 7, 2022
Posted: August 4, 2022
Job Description / Duties
You will be giving private voice lessons in a one on one situation to a variety of students, mainly in CCM styles. Most of our clientele is extremely diverse racially and with regard to sexual orientation and gender minorities. You should be sensitive to the issues of these communities while helping them achieve their vocal goals.
We have a private studio set up in Normal Heights near the corner of Adams Avenue and 33rd St. where you will be working. Most of the sessions are 50 minutes long, with occasional shorter lessons for kids. However, mostly our clientele is adults age 20 and over.
You’ve already been through a lot of education and a lot of pedagogical training, so mostly I don’t interfere with that too much. You have your style and you know what works for you and the clients, and we respect that.
Qualifications / Required Skills
We’re looking for people who are community minded, fun, who enjoy people, and who love music and singing. If you have a passion project on the side, that’s awesome and we’d like to hear more about it because that really informs the person who you are and that’s what we’re interested in.
As far as education, we require some sort of a post-grad degree of two years or more duration in vocal pedagogy. We are not looking for people who solely have a performance degree, but people who have invested in the teaching end of their career as well, in the form of an advanced degree or two year advanced certificate in vocal pedagogy.
Toward the end of trying to be a better employer than you may have had, we offer these benefits:
For both full-time and part-time employees
* Paid sick leave
* Paid vacation leave
* Paid holidays when they fall on your teaching day
For full-time employees. Full-time is 32 or more hours per week on average:
* Profit sharing
* Student loan repayment help
* Medical insurance
* Standard benefits the state of California requires of all full-time employers
The pay in San Diego is $54 per hour at minimum entry level. However, entry level pay goes up to $58 per hour. We do standard cost of living increases on salary once a year and merit raises at random. Pay in San Diego is a little higher than in NYC in consideration of the scarcity of our required degrees in San Diego.
Doctorates are totally fine and if you have a doctorate in vocal pedagogy, you will come in at a higher pay scale.
Salary listed is based on 32 hours per week on average over the course of a year at $54 per hour and $58 per hour. It’s totally OK if you want to work only part time.
