Friends of MJHS
We are looking for a committed individual to lead our newly develop boys' drumline which serves ages 10 to 18. As leader of the drumline, your responsibilities would be as follows -
1. Instruct and rehearse percussion parts to beginners/experienced students.
2. Develop and teach cadences for marching playing at performing and competitive events.
3. Work closely with other drumline instructors around activities and performances.
Extensive percussion experience is required with marching band experience strongly preferred. Paramount to this position is commitment to the young men who are part of the line. Previous experience with teaching percussion is preferred. Must have strong communication, collaboration and organizational skills and be able to work effectively with other line instructors, parents and young people. A sense of humor is critical.
The drumline currently practices on Mondays/Wednesdays at 5pm. The instructor can change this time with the requirement being an online practice once a week for one hour. We anticipate practicing virtually until at least March. When we return to in person practices, we will meet in Midtown Manhattan (Penn Station area) on Saturdays only.
Interested candidates are asked to respond to this opportunity with their experience and availability.
