Earn a $125,000 salary and join a team of master teachers at The Equity Project (TEP) Charter School, featured in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and on 60 minutes for its revolutionary teacher salaries and its outstanding results.
The Equity Project is deeply committed to music instruction, evident in the fact that TEP students learn music every day! The Equity Project treats music as a full-fledged subject (such as English or Math), and NOT as an add-on elective meant to supplement other subjects. TEP middle school students study general music in 5th grade; this includes singing instruction, basic instrumental instruction, rhythm and musical notation, and music history. Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades currently specialize in one of the following tracks: chorus, band, or piano. Students in each track spend their daily music period engaging in formal voice or instrumental instruction and practicing in their ensemble, while also continuing to develop their music literacy skills.
