Teaching Artist Positions

Young Audiences of Massachusetts (YAMA) invites you to join our vibrant roster of experienced music teaching artists in our Expanding Horizons Through Music (EHTM) residency preschool program.

Expanding Horizons Through Music Program (EHTM)
Young Audiences' EHTM residency program is designed to integrate music with the learning of early literacy and social-emotional skills to assist in reducing the achievement gaps often experienced by preschool children (3-5 years old) from socio-economically disadvantaged families with a wide range of challenges and/or limited English language proficiency.

The program's objectives are to provide diverse and culturally responsive music sessions that engage children in the joy of singing, moving, and playing instruments, and that foster self- regulation, socialization, and pre-reading skills such as phonetics, sequencing, sound and letter recognition, rhythms and rhyming, clapping beats of music and words (syllables), tempo, dynamics, and patterns.

Job Description
The EHTM's preschool music residency school sites that are currently available are located in Boston, Cambridge, and Lynn. Residencies can vary in length from 8–24 weeks each, during the school year, September–June.
