Position no longer open (Fall 2023)
FIRST READ THIS: Flourish Mission and Core Values
Faculty members are Flourish’s greatest assets; without a great faculty team, we cannot accomplish Flourish’s mission. Faculty are an active part of the team, always striving to grow and learn as a teacher. Our faculty take ownership of the success of individual students and the school in general.
The part-time Guitar Faculty position is for teaching guitar from beginner to advanced levels, and possibly ukulele mandolin, bass guitar or other string instruments you may play. Ages of students range from 5 – 95.
From our teachers: “Environment very much striving towards excellence. Professional but still fun.”
“I love that the owner is a musician and music teacher. I think it is important for the person running the school to understand the teacher’s perspective, to have the best interest of the student in mind. Environment feels more educational.”
“It doesn’t feel like a puppy mill, churn and burn, trying ot get students in and out”
From our teachers: “ Everyone is very friendly, open. One of the biggest worries I have seen in higher education in music – people can get pretentious. It’s not like that here.”
“I love the camaraderie with other teachers.”
“Very supportive and responsive team.”
From our teachers: “Flourish is structured in a way that makes the job easier.”
“I love that there is structure, but not so much that it stifles my creativity as a teacher.”
“Give us a lot of freedom in teaching.”
“I feel we hold high standards for our students, such as the Achievement Program and RCM requirements. It has helped me push my students more, because it gives me guidelines and specific skills to work on that I might not have thought of on my own.”
From our teachers: “Great pay-rate and after hours benefits.”
“My time is really valued. Everything the office staff does that I would have to do – not having to deal with billing, scheduling, enrolling new students.”
“Flexibility to work with the schedule I have.”
