Interested in learning more about what it’s like to be a teaching artist? Here’s what last year’s MUST TAs had to say:

“I really enjoyed showing and teaching these students about the different uses of all the mediums were utilized this semester. Having answers to their infinite questions about what everything is used for or how to create or draw something new is always a great feeling.”

Students use the skills they learned outside the classroom. I can hear them singing together outside. I also enjoy the conversations about their parents and grandparents knowing the songs they learned and singing with them.”

“I gave them opportunities where I asked them to teach something new to their peers. We often worked in pairs with time for exploring and problem-solving on their own.”

“Students learned how to effectively work together in a group as a band. This provided a point of cohesion within the group and eventually led to comradery and respect between students in the class.”

“The class gave the students the opportunity to develop confidence, musical skills not only singing but learning to recognize musical notations, and understanding different cultures.”

It’s pretty hard not to be moved by these glowing recommendations! Does this sound like a job that resonates with you? Email to apply to be a Teaching Artist by October 11th 2018.
