Hamilton Heights Position Open

The Hamilton Heights High School Band Program is looking for an outstanding candidate to be our new Color Guard Director to start the 2020-2021 school year!

ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

Hamilton Heights is a developing color guard program where we wish to provide our students with a well-rounded experience and the opportunity to be successful.  It is filled with rich traditions, yet is looking towards a new direction and an opportunity to build upon.  We are seeking a candidate who is able to embrace the challenge, create your own vision of your ideal program, and take things to the next level.  Candidates should demonstrate an ability to connect and teach students at a high level.  A background in competitive training and performance is a MUST.

Our high school program currently performs at home football / basketball games and marches in parades.  We entered the IHSCGA for the first time in 2020 in the “Regional A” class, advancing to Semi-State.  The band and guard program looked to compete in the CITSA summer circuit and the Indiana State Fair “Band Day” in 2020 before the pandemic struck.

THE POSITION:

We have a class that meets daily from approximately 9:15a – 10:05a.  The Guard Director position includes the following responsibilities: teaching class, attending performances, leading, managing, developing leaders, potentially working with the director team to design a winter guard and marching show, costumes, coordinating and running all summer rehearsals, coordinating recruiting efforts at the middle and high school levels.

Additionally, we are interested in starting a middle school feeder program after school.  This may or may not be included in the job description, but is a chance to mold the entire program (from top to bottom) to meet the vision of the new director.

PAY:

Pay for this position comes from a combination of Booster funds and school stipends and is negotiable, based on experience level.

Interested candidates should send a resume and letter of interest to:
Mark Snelson, Director of Bands,
msnelson@hhschuskies.org

** Should be prepared to do an interview over Zoom as soon as possible
