Job Description

Do you love children and music? Sing, Teach and Play -- every day.

Imagine: A safe, welcoming space with children and their teachers, happily engaged in musical activity — and after the last song, you lift your basket of instruments and head to the next room, where it all happens again.

Who are you? We are Golden Acorn Music. Founded in 2016, we specialize in bringing high-quality music programs to Bay Area preschools and libraries.

What do you do? Golden Acorn music specialists combine our methods with their individual flair, delivering excellent music classes to families and schools. In this role, you will drive to one or more schools in Mountain View, delivering our weekly curriculum directly to children and teachers. We constantly share our love of music, helping young and old engage musically with themselves and each other, and further integrate music into their lives.

Ok. What will I be doing? As a teacher with us, it all comes down to you: From the moment you enter a class to the moment you leave, you are on the floor. You'll spend most of your focus and energy where it matters most—on the children—but you'll also be expected to communicate with the adults in the school, on such topics as class goals and scheduling.

Cool! This sounds pretty serious... and fun...? You're right! We take our work seriously, but we never lose sight of the fact that play and fun are essential to children's healthy growth. We work to spread the joy of music; to enrich schools and families with music in distinctive, lasting, and substantial ways; and, to build a thriving organization that attracts, develops, excites, and retains exceptional educators.

So, jump to it! Join our new, fast-growing organization!

 

The Schedule: Scheduling is up to you! You ultimately control when and how much you work.

You can choose to work part-time or full-time for this position in Mountain View. All we need is an absolute rock star: someone with a confident singing voice, experience working with groups of children younger than 6, and a deep appreciation of the wonder of childhood.

Morning classes tend to fall between 9-12, and afternoons between 2:30-5. (Weekend and evening work is practically nonexistent.)

We offer:

  • High hourly wage, sick pay, annual raises, and bonuses
  • Paid attendance to professional development opportunities
  • Paid training and ongoing support
  • Schedule flexibility: You control when and how much you work
  • Colleagues and managers who also teach, and so are in touch with what you need to succeed

Applicants should have:

  • Confidence in singing, especially in front of a group
  • Experience working with children (ideally groups) ages 0-6
  • A passion for education, especially in music
  • Ability to drive between locations in Mountain View
  • Ability to play an instrument (preferred, not required)

 

You can email your resume and message describing your interest to Hello@GoldenAcornMusc.com.

Business Overview

Our Story

If you love children or music (or both!), we may have the job for you. We at Golden Acorn are bringing music to where it counts most: early childhood. How else can we combat the pattern of cuts to arts and music programs?

Our goal is to enrich schools and families with music in distinctive, lasting, and substantial ways, and to build a thriving organization that attracts, develops, excites, and retains exceptional educators. We contract directly with preschools to schedule regular music classes, giving children early and recurring musical exposure. In addition to supporting each child's early development, our work brings the joy of music to teachers, families, and (of course) children.
