Preschoolers, Kinder

Hey there! Blue Bear School of Music (the original school of rock 'n' roll) would love YOU to teach with us!

We're looking for teacher for "Bear Cubs", a preschool, pre-k, and kinder-aged children after-school program. The class is a sing-along, dance-along, jam-a-long course for the budding young music lover. Students sing classic children’s songs and pop hits, and use simple instruments and props such as shakers, drums, kazoos, and scarves. The students get a sense of rhythm and melody, and have fun in process.

Most classes occur between 2 pm and 5:30 pm, and happen at locations in San Francisco, Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley and Albany. We currently are staffing Mondays and Tuesdays from 3:10-4 pm at a school in Berkeley. There will be 14 kids in each class, with an adult supervisor in the room to assist with classroom management. Additional teaching gigs are likely beyond this.

Starting pay is $60 per hour. A background check is required, as well as a TB test/Livescan fingerprinting for some sites.

Necessary qualities, abilities and experience include:

-a responsible work ethic based on quality, reliability, punctuality, and empathy

-strong classroom management skills

-infectiously fun personality 

-competence at one or more instruments such as voice, guitar, keyboard, or drums
