Application for Music Education Teacher

Dear Hiring Manager,

As a qualified Music Education Teacher with 6 years of experience teaching in high school settings, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently the Music Teacher at Sunnybank High School, where I cultivate students’ interest in music education and development by teaching instrumental techniques, scales, music theory, and sight reading. I explain and demonstrate pitch, tempo, rhythm, and other concepts that are fundamental to playing music and singing. I also grade assignments, evaluate student progress, and plan educational activities.

I find teaching to be both 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. Furthermore, while it is important to draw upon classical music as part of the curriculum, I proactively seek out material from contemporary musicians and 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 as a violinist with numerous orchestras. This enables me to better relate to students from different cultures and backgrounds.

Your school has a strong reputation for the excellence of its music education. I would be honoured to contribute to your program with the unique experiences I bring as an artist and teacher.

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

Yours faithfully,

Celine Roberts
