Summer Teaching Artist

Job Description

Girls Rock Cincinnati is hiring teaching artists for our 2024 Summer Camp! Our week-long summer camp focuses on creative arts as a vehicle for social change and provides teens ages 12-18 opportunities to build skills in instrumental music, vocals, songwriting, and visual arts.

This year, we have three available staff roles for individuals 18+. All positions are eligible for an optional stipend, including daily staff meals.



Stipend $600

Summer camp is nothing without the counselors! Counselors are responsible for general supervision, safety, and, most importantly, building relationships with our campers to create a supportive and encouraging environment. No prior music experience is required, but some experience working with kids and teens is preferred.

Counselors must be available for the entire duration of Camp (M-F 9 a.m.-4 p.m.), including the full Camp day on Saturday.

Instrument Instructors

Stipend $200

The heart of rock camp is the rock. Instrument instructors are responsible for leading technical music education for our campers. We are seeking guitar, bass, drums, keys, and voice instructors. Lessons are held with small groups of campers (3-10) and involve co-teaching with another instructor. Music experience is required, but the skill level is flexible.

Instrument Instructors must be available in the mornings (9 a.m.-11 a.m.) for the whole week of Camp and the entire camp day (12 p.m.-8 p.m.) Saturday.

Band Coaches

Stipend $200

Campers will be placed in bands to write and play their original music for the Final Showcase with the help of their Coaches! Band Coaches do not need extensive musical expertise, but they should be able to encourage and guide our campers in their music creation. Each band is comprised of 3-5 campers, who will be assigned two band coaches.

Band Coaches must be available in the afternoons (1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.) for the whole week of Camp and the entire camp day (12 p.m.-8 p.m.) Saturday.
