    Position Summary
    Under the supervision of the Headmaster, the Director of Music will help STCS to maintain its strong music education program. The rigorous and comprehensive music curriculum emphasizes musical literacy, choral performance/vocal production, and understanding of the Catholic liturgy in her vast tradition and treasure of sacred music. The Director of Music will facilitate student success and growth in spiritual, academic, and interpersonal skills through implementing a classical approach to teaching and learning; documenting teaching and student activities and outcomes; addressing specific educational needs of individual students; by creating a flexible, safe, and optimal learning environment; and by providing feedback to students, parents, and administration regarding student progress, expectations, goals, etc. The Director of Music must be willing to grow in personal faith while collaborating with families for the good of all students. The successful candidate will be a person of unquestioned integrity, possess a sense of humor, be characterized by a spirit of service, and exhibit an understanding of the high call of teaching and forming young souls. Faculty must be willing and able to actively promote the mission and ideals of Saint Theresa Catholic School. The ideal candidate will have a background in choral conducting, teaching, and experience in directing music for Catholic, liturgical celebration. Academic credentials in music performance, music education, or a related field is required. Developed skills in keyboard performance, particularly organ, is a plus.

    The STCS Music program for children in Grades Pre-K through 8th relies heavily on aural development and musical literacy through understanding solfege, folk song, chant, and polyphony. While music education is comprehensive and self-contained for each class, grade levels are divided into emphases in a set of three stages: PK4 – 2nd “Developing Music Understanding”; 3rd – 5th “Developing Music Literacy”; and 6th – 8th “Developing Music Performance”.
