Dynamic Music School Seeks Superstar Admin

Meridee Winters School of Music

The Meridee Winters School of Music is a longtime Main Line institution, serving thousands of creative music students for over 25 years. We are looking for an organized, multi-tasking individual to join our "backstage" office team at our unique school. 

The ideal person would be detail-oriented, have several years of in-office admin experience, and a passion for music and/or education. The hours and mission of this job are a great match for a parent returning to the workforce or someone looking for a part-time position in a place that makes a positive difference.

About the role: you would be behind the scenes in a dynamic educational setting, working with and supporting other team members. Projects may include signup calls, scheduling, billing, event help, assembling promotional material and occasional quirky tasks like "test out the bubble machine." The ideal candidate would be have an eye for detail, an ability to keep track of where different tasks stand in the pipeline, and a passion for finding ways to make things better - from "adding a field to registration would really help with scheduling" to "Gazillion Bubble Juice is WAY better than Miracle Bubbles." (Side note: This is in fact true.) A degree or work experience in education and/or music is needed, and the ability to write well is essential. (Musical ability is not required but is a plus!)

If this role sounds like the perfect fit for you - read on! 

This role would be 20-25 hours per week. (4-5 hours per day, M-F. Exact hours and schedule are negotiable, and can be arranged upon hiring). For vacations, we generally match the school year calendar for winter break, Thanksgiving, etc. with some flex in the summer for family vacations and travel.

About us:

Meridee and her talented community of teachers are passionate advocates of creativity. Founded in 1990, the school's groundbreaking curriculum is one of a kind in that it teaches creativity from the start - while other methods teach by rote/recall/reading only. Check us out at http://mwschoolofmusic.com for more information on the school!

What we are looking for:
-A perfectionist with a keen attention to detail and high standards.
-The ability to work well as a team member.
-A passion for music, creativity and/or education
-Someone who is familiar with current technology and has the ability to quickly learn and apply new technology and programs
-Someone with an outgoing personality who likes to organize and connect with others both on the phone and in person.
-Someone who stays cool and positive during busy seasons or events!
-Someone who wants a job that has meaning and makes a positive difference in the lives of kids and families.

If this checklist sounds energizing to you, then you may be a good match for our school!
