Piano Accompanist for Eurythmy
San Francisco Waldorf School is looking for a part-time piano accompanist for its eurythmy lessons in person on campus.
Eurythmy is a form of expressive movement in connection to live music and the spoken word. Eurythmy classes are taught to children at the elementary and middle school age and are an integral part of Waldorf Education. Lessons are taught in a dedicated space with a Baldwin baby grand piano.
The tentatively schedule includes 20 eurythmy sessions per week (this includes one prep session with the teacher). Sessions are approximately 50 minutes.
Exact schedule to be determined.
Location: San Francisco Waldorf School, 2938 Washington Street
- Proficiency at playing the piano, the repertoire is strictly classical (no show tunes or popular music)
- Sight reading skills are a plus as is being able to improvise simple tunes for younger children
- An interest in working in the presence of children is a main requirement of the work
- Not all the lesson time is dedicated to the musical element so some unoccupied time during the lesson is to be expected.
- We are a cell phone free campus, which includes all contact hours with the students.
- We encourage observation of and interaction with the students
Please come prepared to play something at an interview.
