Postgraduate Teaching Program
The Postgraduate Teaching Program at The New School for Music Study is a highly competitive program. It provides intensive study in the art of effective piano teaching of all ages and levels of study. Each participant’s teaching is transformed through an in-depth practicum and immersion as a faculty member. Participants are personally mentored in piano teaching of pre-college and adult students. A legacy program of the school and The Frances Clark Center, the Postgraduate Teaching Program is based on the foundational philosophies of founding teachers Frances Clark and Louise Goss.
Accepted candidates must demonstrate an accomplished academic background in piano and piano pedagogy. They are expected to be active performers and hold a minimum of a Master’s degree. Candidates will have significant teaching experience at the pre-college level. Prior pedagogy study is not required, but an asset. Successful candidates may expect 15 hours of applied teaching per week and also participation in coursework, mentored teaching, guided observations, residency program, and performance opportunities by invitation.
The Postgraduate Teaching Program is a compensated teaching fellow program. A monthly stipend is provided.
Applications for the 2024-2025 academic year will be due on April 15, 2024.
