NOW HIRING: Early Childhood Music Facilitator

staff pictureNOW HIRING

Grow and Sing Studios is seeking friendly, enthusiastic, loving musicians, music therapists, and/or educators to facilitate Kindermusik parent/child music and movement classes and lead musical birthday parties for our 15 time awarded Kindermusik top program in the Orlando area and surrounding! The benefits of music are truly transformational. When paired with movement and instrument play, it creates neurological magic, lighting up a child’s brain and positively impacting all areas of development. If music and children make your life richer, now you can enjoy them to the fullest in an opportunity that is truly rewarding, with a fun, enthusiastic and sometimes silly music team that is dedicated and passionate about what they do. Join the International Kindermusik community of teachers, music therapists and families, who all share a passion for transforming the lives of children through music. You can be part of the world’s most carefully researched, developmentally based musical learning program – and still balance the other priorities in your life. In short, it’s the easiest and most rewarding way to put your own gifts to work.

JOB REQUIREMENTS: All Grow and Sing Studios team members must have a music background, and preferably a degree in Music, Music Therapy or Music Education, or on the job experience in Music or the Arts. Strong vocal skills and ability to play guitar or ukelele is VERY important. In order to teach Kindermusik curriculum for Grow and Sing Studios, new hires must enroll in Kindermusik International’s licensing program Kindermusik University, through Grow and Sing Studios, as well as participate in Grow and Sing Studios mentoring and training alongside that with Director/Owner Holly Lesnick during Summer Virtual classes, plus at the UCF/East Orlando location THIS FALL (sometime during Sept – Dec) on Wednesdays from 10am – 1pm . Our music facilitators need to have lots of wonderful energy and enthusiasm, and be GREAT communicators! All of our team members are traveling minstrels in that they transport equipment and set up at various temporary locations so mild travel around town is required, as well as carrying/wheeling equipment in and out of locations. We do not have a standing permanent brick and mortar space. This position is flexible in that we are open to hiring someone as a part time employee at 20 hours per week if you are willing to also work behind the scenes, or an Independent Contractor for a per/hour wage. This position is a perfect supplement for a private music therapist, musician, or teacher doing private lessons or another part time job, as well as perfect for a stay at home parent who has the credentials but doesn’t want a full time position. We do not have any full time positions at this time. A background check is required as part of licensing. Please submit all resumes and cover letters to Owner/Director Holly Lesnick at . We will not respond to any job submissions sent via social media whether in comments or private messaging. We look forward to hearing from all applicants. We will be putting a lot of thought and care into hiring, so thank you for your patience.

Learn more about Grow and Sing Studios at growandsing.com, and join us on social media FB & IG at @growandsingstudios. First interviews will be conducted via Zoom, and those called for second interviews will be in person with owners Will and Holly Lesnick.

Thank a {music} teacher!

teacher appreciation 2021🎵This year has been anything but typical. Teaching isn’t always the easiest job in the world but it’s definitely one of the most rewarding. We, the teachers here at Grow and Sing Studios are so incredibly passionate about educating not only young children but their entire families. Sharing how music affects minds and bodies is what we love to do! We have always known that bringing families together through music is a gift like none other, but this year we learned it can be taught in MANY different ways, through many different mediums.

🎵Our team isn’t the only one that pivoted, and adapted to make the learning happen. Each and every teacher in the world has done that! But we couldn’t let this Teacher Appreciation Week go by without a HUGE shout out to team Grow and Sing for not only making it through this challenging year, but STAYING COMPLETELY TOGETHER AS A TEAM! Our team that we had in 2020 is our same team we have here in 2021. That took passion and teamwork from each and every teacher here at our studio. Now THAT is the definition of perseverance, dedication, teamwork and accomplishment.

🙌PLEASE GIVE A “WOOHOOOO” TO:
Lisa Petko
Angelyn Rhode
Marisol LaBoy
Kristen Bozard
Holly Lesnick
Will Lesnick
Aiden Amato
and a big thank you to Jasmin Vilca for volunteering her time!

🎵As we head into our 16th Summer of Music, we want to send our endless appreciation and gratitude to our Grow and Sing Studios families. Thank you for believing in us! Oh and thank you for your flexibility with our pivots!
