Application for Assistant Professor Music Theory Composition

Dear Hiring Manager,

As an Adjunct Music Theory Lecturer and Doctorate of Musical Arts graduate, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently a part-time Adjunct Lecturer at the University of Sunnybank, where I teach undergraduate Melodic and Harmonic Dictation and Rhythm and Meter. I employ a range of traditional and progressive methodology in the planning and delivery of instruction in physical and virtual settings, with an emphasis on experiential learning opportunities whenever possible. 

I see myself as an educator and musician, not just an instructor. I actively promote a flexible, supportive, and dynamic learning environment and encourage students to challenge the material and ask how we can use our knowledge to question the professional choices we make. I am particularly pleased at the average 97% pass rate my students achieve.

In addition to my lecturing experience and doctorate, I hold a Master of Music Theory. I regularly build upon my theoretical and practical knowledge through attending concerts and presenting at workshops, conferences, and public courses. In my spare time, I am involved in a wide range of activities such as conducting with the Windemere Choral Society and playing flute and harp with the Lakeside Orchestra.

I have enjoyed my time at the University of Sunnybank, and am grateful for the excellent teaching opportunities offered. I now seek a full-time Assistant Professor role that will enable me to deliver stimulating courses to the next generation of music professionals.

Please find attached my curriculum vitae for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps. 

Yours sincerely,

Seth Cohen
