Part-time Piano Accompanist
Position needed immediately!
Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School is in immediate need of a skilled piano player to accompany our Lower School Eurythmy classes.
Eurythmy, the art of making sound visible in movement, was developed by Rudolf Steiner as a performing art, a pedagogical practice, and a therapeutic activity. We are looking for a pianist who can play music to accompany classes taught to children in grades 1 through 5. There are about 4 classes each school day which last 40-45 minutes. Recompense is $35 per class. While preference will be given to candidates with experience playing as an accompanist for Eurythmy class, all skilled applicants can and should apply.
Located in the historic Hudson River Valley of New York State, our school is ideally situated on a 900-acre biodynamic farm surrounded by beautiful views of the nearby Catskill and Berkshire Mountains. Both natural beauty and cultural riches surround us, providing wonderful opportunities for our students, families, and teachers. The school is 2.5 hours north of New York City.
The school is a branch of the Hawthorne Valley Association (HVA), which supports several Anthroposophical initiatives including the Hawthorne Valley Farm and Farmstore, a Farm Apprenticeship program, a Farmscape Ecology Program, the Alkion Waldorf teacher-training program, Adonis Press, and a Place-Based Learning Center. The local area abounds with additional initiatives including a Christian Community Church and the Berkshire-Taconic Branch of the Anthroposophical Society. Our diverse student body includes the children of co-workers from three nearby Camphill communities.
