Office Admin with Music Experience Needed

Meridee Winters School of Music

Join the musical admin team at our unique school! 

The Meridee Winters School of Music, a Main Line educational presence for the past 25 years, is looking for an enthusiastic and organized individual to assist us as our school and method continue to grow. 

We are looking for someone to speak with parents and potential students about music lessons, as well as help with music materials. The ability to play and read music is an essential part of this job. (But you do not need to do either on an advanced level! Not sure? Apply and ask!)

About the role:
You would be "back stage" in a dynamic educational setting, taking calls that come in during afternoon/evenings and handling other administrative tasks. Projects may include street teaming, doing signup calls, scheduling, assembling promotional material, reviewing teacher resumes, taking notes/filing, occasional quirky tasks like "test out the bubble machine" or "buy a new Dumbledore wig," and other projects that may pop up. 

This role would be from approximately 3-8pm, preferably 3-5 afternoon/evenings per week. (Exact schedule can be arranged upon hiring, and customized for the right individual.) 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://www.mwschoolofmusic.com/ for more information on the school! 

We also put on several fun and inspiring performances each year: our whimsical Halloween show, our exclusive Songwriters Showcase, and our year end Woodstock-style musical festival -- the YES!

What we are looking for:
- The ability to keep on track and get things done even when juggling multiple details.
- A passion for music, creativity and/or education
- Someone with a strong work ethic: we embrace fun, but work hard. 
- Someone who is familiar with current technology (smart phones, tablets, printer/scanners, etc.), and has the ability to learn new technology and programs
- Someone with an outgoing personality who likes to organize, connect and talk on the phone.
- Someone who wants a job that has meaning and makes a difference.
- Someone who has studied music (you didn't have to major in it), and plays/reads music

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