Job Description:

The Blake School seeks a part-time woodwinds instructor to support our Middle and Upper School Band program. The Woodwinds Section Coach usually provides weekly small-group lessons and leads occasional sectionals at the Hopkins Middle School campus, and leads twice-monthly sectional/master-classes at the Minneapolis Upper School Campus. During our hybrid learning model this year, the Woodwinds Coach will primarily meet remotely for small group coaching or provide practice videos for student use at home. Opportunity exists to develop after-school private studio teaching. Instruction runs September 2020 - May 2021. Blake is particularly interested in candidates who will enrich the diversity of identity, lived experience and thinking that makes a community strong and empowers students to engage across differences. The search committee will begin reviewing applications immediately.

Applicants must complete the online job application and send audio or video recordings of recent performances to Jay Broeker, Blake’s Director of Visual and Performing Arts, at jbroeker@blakeschool.org.

Experience and Skills:

The Blake School is a pre-kindergarten through grade 12, co-educational, nonsectarian, independent day school enrolling 1,350 bright, talented students from nearly 56 Twin Cities-area communities. Founded in 1900, The Blake School has the advantage of three campuses (Minneapolis, Hopkins and Wayzata) each with its own facilities designed for specific ages, schedules and activities. The mission of the school is to provide students with an excellent, academically challenging education in a diverse and supportive community committed to a common set of values.

The Blake School believes that a diverse society enriches all individuals and communities. Diversity of race, ethnicity, national origin, geography, religion, gender, affectional or sexual orientation, age, physical ability, and marital, parental or economic status forms the fabric of our society. As a result of these beliefs, The Blake School actively seeks students, families and employees who value and contribute to the fullness of a diverse community within the context of its mission. In doing so, we recognize our responsibility to help make each person's experience a success. EOE
