Chicago Center for Music Education (ChiME) seeks a part-time guitar teaching artist to provide instruction in private lessons and group classes to students 6 years old and up.
At the Chicago Center for Music Education (ChiME) we provide an exceptional music education to a diverse community as a path for social, emotional, and character development. Over the years evidence has continually emerged illustrating the non-musical impact that occurs through the process of learning music. The process of music learning allows children to not only express themselves through an art form, but to acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
In 2014 we adapted our mission to reflect not only our dedication to providing children and families with an exceptional music education, but also on the development of “life” skills and character traits. It is our desire to create a community of individuals who value not only what they accomplish, but how they lead their daily lives.
The Chicago Center for Music Education serves approximately 250 students at its location in Chicago’s West Town community and over 2,500 in public and private schools.
