Application for Band Director

Dear Hiring Manager,

As a Band Director with 4 years of experience leading high school musicians to a high standard of performance excellence, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently the Band Director at Sunnybank High, where I lead the program of instrumental music for a campus of 1,500 students. Mirroring your requirements, I teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced bands in the art of band woodwind, brass and percussion sectionals, as well as associated drill support. I also provide them with an opportunity to participate in extracurricular band activities.

I find teaching to be energizing and intellectually stimulating, especially in view of the steep challenges that music education now presents. While I teach my students to be excellent musicians and performers, I also strongly believe that music positively influences self-esteem, communication skills, stress management, and creativity for their entire life. While it is important to draw upon classic pieces as part of the curriculum, I proactively seek out material from contemporary styles to engage and stimulate younger learners.

In addition to my professional experience, I hold a Bachelor of Music Education. Before I became a teacher, I performed extensively across North America and Europe. This enables me to better relate to students of different musical interests, cultures, and backgrounds.

Your school has a strong reputation for the excellence of its music education. I would be honoured to contribute to your excellent program with the unique experiences I bring as a successful performing artist combined with my dynamic teaching career.

Please find attached my résumé and samples of my playing for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours sincerely,

Adam Smith
