Join the Staff
Each year ISYM hires over 170 faculty and staff from across the country to provide the best possible musical instruction and supervision.
Vacancies may include:
- ensemble conductors
- conductor assistant/ensemble assistants
- sectional/master class coaches
- work crew
- elective instructors
If you are interested in joining ISYM in any of these capacities, please send a resume and cover letter to ISYMfirstname.lastname@example.org.
ISYM is always interested in receiving nominations for future conductors. If you know of that special conductor who inspires young musicians to make music on a higher level, we want to hear about him/her. Email us!
Our counseling staff is the best around because we are able to draw excellent experienced educators to our campus each year. About 2/3 of the counseling staff are also pursuing their Master of Music Education degree as part of the Summers-only MME degree program.
Counselors who are pursuing the Summers-Only Master of Music Education degree qualify for aid in the form of an assistantship. These graduate assistantships include a tuition waiver, partial waiver of fees and a stipend. Housing and meals are also provided while ISYM is in session. The summer MME program is designed to be completed in three summers and features classes taught by U of I professors. The assistantship is renewable up to three years to allow completion of the MME degree.
Applicants to the Summer-Only MME are not automatically considered for counselor positions. You do not need to be pursuing a degree in order to serve as a counselor. This is a separate application process.
To apply for a counselor position, please email a cover letter and resume to ISYMemail@example.com. The deadline for full consideration is February 15.
Applications are not kept active for subsequent years; unless hired in 2017, you must re-apply to be reconsidered in future years.
