Sing like a Disney princess or prince? ($25-$35/hour)

Get paid to laugh and sing and play!

  • Do people tell you that you sing like a Disney princess or prince?(And it's true?)
  • Do you wish you could find a part-time job that actually uses your musical skills, talents, and training?
  • Do you like to leave your work at work so that you can focus on your music or theater career?
  • Do you love making $25 - $35 per hour while singing, laughing, and playing?

    Curious?? Read on! :-)

This is a perfect part-time job for singers / actors as you will utilize your singing and performance skills every moment that you're at work. It's also a seriously super fun and rewarding job, and I can't wait to find the perfect fit for this position and welcome you to our community of talented, friendly, and fun-loving staff.

Now the official job posting stuff:
Seeking an energetic, dedicated, and responsible teacher/facilitator, with a passion for music, play, and working with infants, young children, and parents in a "caregiver and me" class setting for approximately 4 - 12 hours / week.

And please note: musicality, personality, and dependability count more than previous work experience, so if this job description is calling to you, please don't hesitate to reach out to learn more, even if you've never taught a day in your life. (I hadn't either when I started!). Once trained, there is zero work outside of the classroom.

Job Basics:

  • Facilitate high-energy music classes for kiddos 0 - 5 years. (Full teaching curriculum will be provided, and caregivers attend all classes for children 3 1/2 and younger.)
  • Must have a happy, playful, fun-loving, and positive personality and enjoy singing, song dramatization, and movement.
  • Must have the ability to engage children 4 months - 5 years through songs, movement and various age-appropriate musical activities.
  • Must be able to learn and retain songs and chants (along with matching movements) efficiently and correctly.

Job Requirements:

  • Pleasant and tuneful singing voice (all classes are sung a cappella so a strong musical ear is required; applicants with vocal training are strongly preferred)
  • Genuine enjoyment of infants and young children
  • Enthusiastic, engaging, upbeat, fun-loving personality; extremely strong interpersonal skills are essential
  • Must have reliable transportation, as you will be required to travel to the western suburbs to teach
  • This position will likely require Saturday OR Sunday morning availability (we are closed on all major holidays); as well as 1-3 weekday mornings and/or afternoons. Most classes take place between 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM and 3:30 - 7:30 PM.

Pay = $25 - $35 / hour. We encourage teachers to help market classes and to make each class feel like a mini-community, so our hourly rate increases based on class enrollment.
