Hey there! Blue Bear School of Music (the original school of rock 'n' roll) needs music teachers!

We're looking for instructors to teach our "Little Bears" (Walking - 5 years) and "Bear Cubs" (4-6 years) program to preschool-aged children in both daytime and after-school programs. The class is a sing-along, dance-along, jam-a-long course for the budding young music lover. Students sing children’s songs, classic rock songs, and use simple instruments and props such as shakers, sticks, drums, and scarves. The students get a sense of rhythm, melody, dynamics, and sharing, and have fun in the process. Teachers are provided a class curriculum outline but are free to use both their own resources and our YouTube channel of teacher songs for inspiration.

Most classes occur between the hours of 10 AM and 5 PM and happen at locations in San Francisco, Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley, and Albany. We currently need someone on Wednesdays from 10 AM - 11 AM at a school in Cow Hollow, in San Francisco, beginning in January, with training/subbing in general program to begin immediately. There will be no more than 10 kids in the class, with often two adult supervisors in the room to assist with classroom management. (Typical class size is 8 kids). Other locations pop up frequently, so there is a possibility for additional teaching gigs.

New teachers start at $60 for classes lasting up to an hour (including the minimal prep, set up, and breakdown required to teach a class). A background check is required for all contract employees, and some locations require a TB test (taken within the last 2 years) and Livescan fingerprinting (fee reimbursable by Blue Bear).To be clear, we are not looking for master musicians with experience in teaching private lessons to a child or two. We need solid, experienced teachers who can quickly and easily engage groups of students that are learning and having fun with basic music concepts. We need someone who can think on the fly and roll with transitions, and who can keep up to 10 squirrelly kids excited, but under control, in a fun musical experience!
