This is a Permanent, Full-time position.Category: High School
Our instrumental music program is well established and we are looking to further consolidate our music with the appointment of a voice specialist music teacher. As well as teaching regular classes through middle school and secondary they will also take on responsibility for extracurricular school choir practice and performances.
We want a teacher who can teach our students how to fully use the instrument of their voice—to manage breath, project their voice, master their pitch, and richly and confidently convey emotion. The prototype we have in mind is the renowned John Humphrey, https://youtu.be/utMK44ZaOoA, the former voice instructor of our school's principal.

Compensation: The annual base salary range, including housing allowance, starts at approximately US$44,000, after tax. This does not include the annual travel allowance, new year’s bonus, pension contributions, and yearly re-enlistment bonus that is equivalent to one month’s salary. Furthermore, the government of Macau generously provides a teacher’s subsidy of at least US$580 per month. Taken together, the after-tax total compensation that teachers receive begins at US$57,500.
The School of the Nations, an internationally-oriented day school, was founded by members of the Macau Bahá’í community exactly 30 years ago to serve the local and expatriate communities. At present, over 650 students from age 3 to 18 are instructed by professional and diverse teaching staff.
Our school is dedicated to nurturing the physical, intellectual and spiritual development of children and youth, and developing their capabilities to contribute to the well-being of their families and communities. We are constantly innovating in order to achieve this.
