There is no room for me to move up as there is many Edgar under class student to take my place. I would like the opportunity to advance my career and I am confident that I have the skills to be a great asset to your school and my teaching certifications are valid.
My experience includes directing the music program for the school and leading band practice, both marching and concert. I manage and keep track of all the instruments used in the band and make sure they are all in good working condition. I also travel with the band to other schools and take part in state and nationwide competitions.
I enjoy working with students and helping them to learn how to play a band instrument and achieve their goals. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing their faces light up and the happiness they feel when they have mastered an instrument or a new song as an ensamble. I love my job and have a passion for what I do. I have the qualities needed to be the Band Director for your school. I look forward to meeting with you in person to discuss this position in more detail.
