Online Classroom Assistants for SJW Jazz Camp Online, July 6 – July 17
Stanford Jazz Workshop is seeking volunteers to help with classes for SJW Jazz Camp Online. This is an exciting opportunity to help create a completely new program that will deliver the best online jazz camp experience possible. Over 40 of SJW’s legendary faculty artists are participating in this innovative immersive experience, teaching instrumental and vocal master classes, ear training, jazz theory, and a wide variety of classes on other jazz and improvisation topics.
As an online class assistant, you’ll work from home, helping to facilitate Zoom and Google Classroom sessions, fielding questions from students and keeping the faculty artist informed of questions and comments. You’ll also ensure that students have the technical information they need to attend the class.
SJW Jazz Camp Online will be presented in two one-week sessions:
July 6 – July 10
July 13 – July 17
Volunteers must be available for all five days of either week.
There are three 40-minute class types each day that will require classroom assistants: masterclass, musicianship, and theory. Classes will run on the hour, every hour from 10 AM through 5:40 PM. Classroom assistants will be assigned a maximum of three classes per day, based on their availability.
There will be required orientation meetings prior to July 6 (schedule TBA)
Additional staff meetings may be required during the week of your involvement.
We’re seeking volunteers who have the following qualifications:
- leadership experience at their school music program
- familiarity with using Zoom, Google Classroom, and/or Google Meet
- at least two years’ experience on their instrument or with singing lessons
- an interest in jazz
- recommendation of music teacher or music director preferred
Musical experience sought:
- Alto saxophone
- Tenor saxophone
- Acoustic bass
- Electric bass
This is an unpaid volunteer position, however we are offering online classroom assistants the opportunity to audit classes during the entire week prior or following your involvement, depending on which week you work.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org detailing your musical experience including:
- your instrument or vocal range
- the number of years of private or classroom music study you’ve had
