Music Outreach Teacher
The Front Porch seeks music professionals to teach in our outreach program, which includes morning and/or afterschool hours. Teachers will lead music activities at area schools and youth facilities. Warm, flexible, and enthusiastic teachers will serve the diverse constituencies in the Charlottesville area and promote our mission of connecting everyone through music. Experience working with groups of children is strongly preferred.

We hire professional teaching artists from a variety of musical backgrounds and genres. We love building long-term relationships with our students. We value our warm-hearted, friendly atmosphere, and our mission of connecting everyone through music.

Perks of teaching at The Front Porch:

  • We provide comprehensive administrative support. You be the artist; we’ll take care of the rest.
  • We provide a ton of teaching resources: full curriculums for group classes, libraries of chord charts, notated music, and pre-recorded instructional videos.
  • We schedule regular opportunities to engage with other teaching artists as well as teacher trainings and other professional development opportunities.
  • You can take any of our group classes for free!
  • You’re an employee, not a contractor.
  • Maintaining 25+ hours/week qualifies you for health/dental insurance.
  • Our school schedule mirrors that of the local public schools, so winter and spring breaks are built in.
  • We pay our teachers as professionals: $43-65/ hour wages.
