Lead Instructor

Lead Instructors are relied upon to bring their experience and expertise to this leadership role. They represent their class-specific teaching teams as the main point of contact with their Program Manager, acting as the lead in class planning, workgroup activities, data collection, and equipment needs.


Co-instructors assist while learning to guide students in all aspects of forming and working together as an ensemble, in both remote and in-person settings: playing instruments (including DAWs), learning songs, setting up, tuning, songwriting, playing as a group, listening to one another, communicating effectively, supporting each other, stage presence and, of course, LIVE performance.
