Music Instructor 2024 – 2025 Academic Year (Wind and/or String Ensembles)

  • Teacher
  • Mill Bay, BC
  • $12,698 to $20,042 CAD / Year

Located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, Brentwood College School is committed to making our school the best place to learn and work. As one of the top boarding high schools in North America, we offer a vibrant culture, competitive compensation, a diverse student body, and an absolutely stunning oceanfront campus. Our Admissions motto is #choosetobe and this applies to our faculty as well.

Your Opportunity:

Do you love being part of a dynamic and creative learning environment? Are you accredited or able to become accredited to teach music classes in the Province of British Columbia at a high school level? Music instructors with a Letter of Permission are also encouraged to apply.

This is a temporary part-time position teaching 1 block of Wind Ensemble and/or 1 block of String Ensemble at the secondary level for the 2024 – 2025 school year only. Each block represents 3 instructing hours per week. Our spectacularly beautiful and innovative T. Gill Bunch Centre for the Performing Arts allows for multidisciplinary spaces to learn, create and work collaboratively. You will love coming to work to teach your music blocks on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons each week allowing you time to pursue your craft with other opportunities.

You will be working alongside colleagues who are dedicated to supporting a positive student learning experience, from classroom to studio to athletic venue to boarding house. Your innovative nature will be supported as you create authentic learning opportunities for your students. Our faculty team works with students who are interested in learning and see a future that includes their skills and ideas. If you can see yourself working at a school where each student is contributing in academics, connecting to their passion in the arts and competing athletically wearing the school insignia, all while living away from home, Brentwood could be the community you’ve been looking for.

Working at Brentwood is not like working at a typical school. Because we have more than 80% of our students as boarders, we take on the duty and privilege of creating a home away from home. We have a tripartite system, where academics, arts, and athletics are all valued and an expectation for all students. Our unique schedule allows for more options for our students, meaning more options for our faculty. And can we talk about the food? Our Food Services Team is famous for creating delicious and diverse meals, all enjoyed while looking out over the ocean towards Mt. Baker.

Your Qualifications and Experience:

  • BC teaching certification or Letter or Permission
  • Experience as a fine arts educator (institutional, community–based or private), and ideally, teaching music classes in a high school environment
  • Familiarity with Grade 9 -12 BC Art curriculum an asset


  • Criminal Record Check clearance is a condition of initial and ongoing employment
  • Compensation range: $12,698 to $20,042 depending on years of experience
  • Blocks are scheduled 2:00pm to 4:00pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday
  • We encourage you to review the full Position Profile before applying.
