Teaching Assistant

Perhaps the greatest advantage of being a Teaching Assistant with ETM-LA is the opportunity to observe and work with a seasoned Music Teacher. Teaching Assistants see first-hand what it’s like to work with children in a classroom setting. The ideas and routines used by the teaching artist will be invaluable for any intern who anticipates working with students in schools, camps or private settings. All Teaching Assistants are eligible to attend music teaching workshops provided by ETM-LA. These workshops are invaluable to teaching artists or future teaching artists. Training is provided in classroom management techniques, musical pedagogy and methodology, developmentally appropriate practices, learning theory, assessment, lesson planning, etc. For more information on requirements and how to apply, please contact [email protected]
