Music Teacher

Middle school and high school music teaching opportunity. Teaching load can be tailored to the talents of the successful candidate. 

Teaching could be of a general music/music appreciation nature, could be combined with insturmental music (many of our students play piano or other instruments - several play the cello), theory, composition, etc. Parents and students enjoy some aspect of performance, so the ability to put together performing groups whether they are instrumental or vocal is a plus. 

Music classes would constitute about half of the teaching load, would look to fill the teaching load with other subjects such as PE, ESL, English, computers or IT, even IT support for the school.

Excellent opportunity to live in a large city (3 to 6 million) where English speaking foreigners are welcome.  Competetive salary with a very low cost of living - this is an excellent opportunity for a first time visitor to Asia to learn the Chinese language and culture while saving more money than is possible in the United States.
