Here at the Fun Music Company it is our mission to create outstanding resources for music education. We do this by finding the best educators in the world, bringing them together and having them write educational materials that work in the classroom.
Sometimes we do this by “crowd sourcing”, like one of the projects we are currently working on: The Fun Choir Warm-ups. Very often we have a “team” of writers – they share doing the initial drafts and then they are edited by other members of the team.
We are wanting to expand our product range in a few specific areas. For these two areas we are going to need one specialist who really knows the area to write the product.
If one of the descriptions below matches you then please get in touch with us and we can give you more details.
Person One has been a primary/elementary school music specialist for at least five years. In their experience they have taught lots of music of course, but they are particularly good at using Ukulele in the classroom. They teach with it all the time, know the tricks to make it sound good and easy to use, and they know what traditional tunes work really well for classroom use. Also they have sufficient time available in the next six months to write up original teaching ideas for the Ukulele, test them in the classroom and work with us to complete the product.
Person Two is similar to person one, in that they need to be experienced in the primary/elementary classroom, but this person specializes in using the Recorder. They know what tunes work well for recorder at what level, what is fun for kids to do, and how to make Recorder lessons inspiring and fun. They also need sufficient time week to week to complete the project within six months.
There will be attractive upfront payment (and ongoing royalties) for the right applicants who would like to work with us on these two projects. This is a great opportunity for music teachers to increase their income with a little extra work, while testing what you are doing along the way!
