Application for Assistant Professor Piano

Dear Hiring Manager,

As an Adjunct Piano Lecturer and Doctorate of Musical Arts (Piano) 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 Beginning Ear Training and Tonal Counterpoint. 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 Education and a Bachelor of Music - Piano. I regularly build upon my theoretical and practical knowledge through attending concerts and presenting at workshops and conferences. In my spare time, I am a pianist with the Lakeside Orchestra and am an active composer.

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 piano 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,

Peter Foster
