Details

You will work in connection with the Director to choose a musical that best fits your students.

Hours 1.5 -2/hours a week between 5-8pm to be discussed with successful applicant.

Please read the following description carefully. If this sounds like you send your resume to stefanie@thestagenewwest.ca.

  • Must have some experience in music direction. You do not need to have years and years worth, but you should be aware of the demands and prepared to put in any amount of time outside of the class hours that will ensure you and your students share a successful production.

This could also mean providing additional rehearsals for your students at mutually convenient times for staff and students.
