Subject: Application for position of Music Teacher
Dear Mrs. Arteaga,
Today, I am writing to introduce myself as a viable candidate for your Music Teacher position at Danville High School. I found your ad, and am very happy to submit my credentials in this cover letter and resume now.
As a Music Teacher for the past six years at City Honors School, I learned a wealth of knowledge about curriculum in the classroom at the elementary level, and I was responsible for the development, introduction, and testing of over 20 children per class; five classes per day each year. I am proficient in developing curriculum, introducing instruments, and evaluating children in their learning; as well as showing them how fun music can be. My educational background has prepared me for a career as a Music Teacher, as I have a Master’s Degree from The College of William & Mary in Music Education; and I have loved every minute of it. I am thoroughly dedicated, versatile in a number of instruments, and have much patience.
You will find my contact information above to call me for an interview. I warmly welcome this opportunity, and seek to meet with you in person. Thanks so much for reviewing this cover letter and resume today, and for listing your ad.
