    August 2020. The successful candidate will teach weekly studio lessons (13 lessons per semester plus

    weekly contact hours during each 14-week semester; actual hours will depend on enrollment. Part-time
    faculty are not assigned governance responsibilities, scholarship, supervision of independent studies, or
    advising duties, except for those which occur as part of course instruction.
    Earned master’s degree or equivalent professional experience required; demonstrated potential for
    successful teaching at the college level, an understanding of the ideals and goals of an undergraduate
    liberal arts education, and demonstrated success as a collaborative performer required. Experience
    working with diverse populations and demonstrated potential to be effective in Conservatory recruitment
    and outreach preferred.
    Application Details:
    Please submit a letter of application that addresses teaching philosophy, a curriculum vitae, and current
    email and contact information for three professional references to: Dr. James Day (jday@gettysburg.edu),
    Director of the Sunderman Conservatory of Music. Additional materials may be requested at a later date.
