Artist-Teacher of Voice
The Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester invites applications for a tenure-eligible (full-time) Artist-Teacher of Voice, beginning on 1 July 2023. The successful candidate will be an exceptional artist and pedagogue with a thorough knowledge in more than one of the following areas: art song, opera and/or music theater, oratorio, chamber and concert repertoire, lyric diction, and voice pedagogy. In addition to applied studio teaching, activities might include developing courses in vital areas that reflect the artist-teacher’s particular expertise and interests, such as studies in a specific art-song repertoire, contemporary vocal chamber music, or opera literature. Candidates at various stages of their careers are encouraged to apply. Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience.
Applicants must demonstrate experience and success in teaching. A deep commitment to effective applied instruction, to mentoring students in their professional development, to recruiting high-caliber voice students, in particular TBB voice types, and to broadening participation among members of under-represented groups is required.
Review of applications begins on 1 November 2022. To receive full consideration, please submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae including evidence of performance and teaching activity, and up to four recordings of current or past performances via candidate-provided video links (YouTube preferred) to VoiceSearch@esm.rochester.edu.
