Application for Piano Instructor

Dear Hiring Manager,

As a qualified Piano Instructor with 6 years of experience teaching in high schools, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently the Piano Teacher at Sunnybank High School, where I cultivate students’ interest in piano and musical 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. I also grade assignments, evaluate 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 (Piano Performance). Before I became a teacher, I performed extensively across North America and Europe in 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 piano program with the unique experiences I bring as a successful performing artist combined with my dynamic teaching career.

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,

Catherine Robbie
