SOUND THINKING NYC: TEACHING ARTISTS
Now in its second year, Sound Thinking NYC is seeking Actor-Teachers for our 2019 Summer Intensive!
If you love music, care about gender equity and love working with high school students, grades 11 through 12, then perhaps joining the Sound Thinking NYC team is for you!
We seek facilitators who are creative and participant-centered, who are strong at devising scenes, and thrive in performance, love music and music-making (whether voice, instrument, and/ or with the body), who seek value in history, who support critical thinking around issues of equity, and are eager to explore NYC's music and sound landscape!
If you fit that bill, we're holding auditions/interviews this April!
Our summer schedule is Monday through Friday from 9am-3pm:
The STNYC Summer Intensive Program runs in TWO sessions:
- 2019 Summer Intensive Session 1: July 9th to July 26th
- 2019 Summer Intensive Session 2: July 22nd to August 9th
Sound Thinking NYC is a free program especially designed to open doors for young women to explore careers in the music industry.
Sound Thinking NYC is a CUNY-CAT initiative with multiple levels of student engagement focused on increasing opportunities in the music industry for underrepresented groups, particularly women. All students who are interested in supporting gender equity in music are encouraged to apply. Summer Intensive graduates will be invited to Sound Thinking NYC 2018-19 school year events and will be offered opportunities for paid internships and credited College Now Courses in their 11th and 12th grade year.
Sound Thinking NYC empowers young people as they explore how to turn their passion for music into a possible profession in New York City's thriving music industry. Addressing gender equity and building leadership skills in the music industry is a core part of this summer program that includes hands-on activities in music production and field trips to venues and sound production studios.
If you are available, here's what we will need from you:
- Please send a recent headshot/picture, resume and your date/time availability for one of the dates listed below.
- In three sentences or more, please answer the following: What are your thoughts about gender equity and the ways equity intersects the music industry?
