Teaching Artist applications due Sunday, September 8

Reminder: For anyone who would like to work as a Teaching Artist for the Music in Schools Initiative this year, the application is due by Sunday, September 8 at 11:59pm. Interviews will be conducted from September 4-11, and new applicants can sign up for an interview as soon as you have submitted the application. Returning Teaching Artists do not have to re-interview.

We work with several hundred students at public schools throughout New Haven who are enthusiastic for another year of high quality music programming through the Music in Schools Initiative. All interested YSM students are encouraged to apply.

YSM Teaching Artists work 5–10 hours a week and are paid $25 perhour to support NHPS music teachers. Teaching Artists lead group lessons, work one-on-one with individual students, and assist with related activities like music theory and ear training. I invite you to attend the Music in Schools Initiative info session to learn more, on Tuesday, September 3, at 7:00 pm in Hendrie Hall Room 205, after the Orchestra and Chamber Music auditions.

If you have any questions about the Music in Schools Initiative or the Teaching Artist position, please contact Associate Dean Michael Yaffe or Lead Teacher Rubén Rodríguez. We look forward to receiving your application.

Concert season opens Sep. 12 with DMA recital by cellist Laura Usiskin

usiskin_lauraCellist Laura Usiskin ’09AD will perform music from Beethoven to Britten in her DMA recital on Thursday, September 12.
