Broadway’s Babies seeks choral instructors with strong piano skills to lead their after-school programs across the Urban Assembly school system in New York City on Mondays through Thursdays. The Urban Assembly Choir Teacher will work with other members of the artistic team on curriculum development and implementation, special events and field trips, program evaluations, and concerts. Positions begin the first week of October 2019 and run parallel to the New York City Public School academic calendar. Broadway’s Babies offers a competitive hourly salary commensurate with experience with positions ranging from 2 -15 hours per week.
The mission of The Urban Assembly is to advance students' economic and social mobility by improving public education, and most of their students enter schools as low-opportunity youth who are often below grade level in both Math and ELA. Between 2002 and 2013, New York City closed 69 high schools to manage classroom size and improve individualized attention, creating a network of smaller schools that no longer had the funding for specialized programs such as the arts and leaving students in most high schools without the opportunity to have access to a music education. Urban Assembly schools depend on strong partner relationships with organizations such as Broadway’s Babies to offer students a diverse array of extracurricular educational opportunities to prepare them for college and career success.
Last year, students from our New York programs performed on the GLAAD Awards, with the Broadway cast of Mean Girls, alongside Broadway stars at Macy’s, and many other exciting opportunities!
We value process-oriented (rather than product-oriented) teaching methods that focus on the development of soft skills and creatively reinforce the lessons and skills being taught in academic classes.
