BASIS International School Guangzhou is seeking qualified candidates for a Music Teacher for the coming school year!

BASIS International teachers are knowledgeable, passionate, and believe in transforming education. As part of a uniquely collaborative and professional teaching community, BASIS International teachers motivate students to reach their highest potential, while also elevating their skills through peer collaboration and a culture where learning is of the greatest importance.

As a music teacher, you will have the opportunity to introduce students to the varied and challenging repertoire, while also building on music history and theory concepts. Music theory concepts covered include written theory, aural skills, and composition, while music history is taught through learning about composers and listening to major musical works from different style periods.

Music teachers also expand students' music skills by working on tone, technique, breath support, expression, blend, and overall musicianship. You will guide students to achieve musical goals both as individuals and as a group while building a foundation for future musical experiences, whether as a performer or audience member. BASIS International teachers are encouraged to bring their passion and experiences with their subject into the classroom to spark students' interest and curiosity and engage them with the subject.

Primary Job Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Prepare for and lead music rehearsals and subject-specific lessons in Music Theory and History.
  • Provide subject instruction on a higher level than grade standard, in an interactive learning environment, and deliver exceptional results for all students.
  • Implement BASIS Curriculum by designing effective and creative lessons and assessments to ensure students' education is at an internationally competitive level.
  • Collaborate with other BASIS International teachers to create interdisciplinary lessons and incorporate music as a part of other areas of knowledge.
  • Tutor students in content-specific knowledge and skills to heighten the trajectory of students' academic and career success.
  • Manage student behavior to foster academic achievement, personal responsibility, intellect, and individuality in all students.
