Classical Charter Schools

Music Teacher

1 week ago


Classical Charter Schools are high-performing public charter schools in the South Bronx. We seek to develop an uncompromising but purposeful education program that liberates teachers and scholars from distraction, transforming the classroom into an environment sharply focused on learning. Despite serving students typically deemed ‘at-risk,’ we consistently outperform over 90% of New York schools and won the National Blue Ribbon Award in 2014.


Music Teachers are passionate about supporting the school's classical mission and helping all students gain knowledge of music. Music Teachers’ primary responsibilities are to:

  • Provide instruction in music to scholars in a way that maximizes learning.
  • Maintain a “no-excuses,” highly ordered classroom culture where scholars demonstrate respect, responsibility, caring, trustworthiness, fairness, and citizenship.

Under the supervision and direction of the School Leader, Music Teachers:

  • Study, practice, and execute lessons that lead scholars to mastery of music content, using our rigorous curriculum.
  • Maintain a lesson pace which both ensures comprehension and maximizes students' ability to engage in the activity.
  • Organize musical equipment thoughtfully, developing classroom routines to manage materials efficiently with minimal lost activity time.
  • Be proactive in matters relating to health and safety.
  • Manage student behavior for an effective learning environment.
  • Maintain accurate records of student information and assessment data.
  • Work cooperatively and professionally with other staff, including attending team and staff meetings.
  • Undertake other duties as required.

Above all, our teachers care deeply about their scholars, who inspire them to achieve life’s greatest joy: doing good work well.


• NYS Teaching Certification strongly preferred
• Alignment to Classical Charter School’s mission and approach
• Excellent work ethic and organizational skills
• Experience teaching in a high performing urban school preferred but not required

Demonstrated application of our core values: Accountability, Innovation, Professionalism, Rigor, Tenacity, Transparency, and Urgency
