Do you love children and music? Sing, Teach and Play -- every day.
Picture the scene: A classroom of children and their teachers, healthily and happily engaged in musical learning and activities. There is singing, moving, laughter — and after the last song, you lift your basket of instruments and head to the next room, where it all happens again.
Who are we? We are Golden Acorn Music. Still just three years old, we specialize in bringing high-quality music programs to Bay Area preschools and libraries.
What do we do? Our teachers drive between local schools, delivering our weekly curriculum directly to the 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 arrive at a school 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, but know that most school will want you to teach on weekday mornings, sometime between 8:45-12:15. (Any afternoon classes will fall between 2:30-5:00.) Teachers tend to make between $80-125 per morning and $45-75 per afternoon.
Mondays 2-3pm in Menlo Park are in need of filling ASAP.

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.
