Dear <Title> <Name>:

It is with considerable interest that I enclose my resume for the Music Teacher position currently available with the <School District>. With almost 20 years of music-related experience, and over 15 years as a teacher, I am confident in my ability to become an asset to your educational institution.

As you will note, I have acquired both a Master's of Music Degree and a Bachelor's Degree in Education. In addition, I am certified in multiple areas including a California Preliminary Single Subject Teaching Credential: Music, Pre-K-12; and a California High School Certificate with Elementary Endorsement: Music, K-12.

As a versatile individual, I have had the opportunity to hold a number of professional roles including Music Teacher, Musician Instructor, and Private Music Instructor. Through these experiences, I have been fortunate enough to educate a diverse group of elementary and middle school students, who functioned below- and on grade level.

My goal is to instill a sense of music appreciation, while at the same time teaching students about the technical aspects of music. Furthermore, I strive to expand children's interests by organizing field trips, integrating multicultural lessons, and incorporating a wide range of activities, manipulatives, and cooperative learning projects. By utilizing these effective methods, I am able to reach out to each student, introduce new concepts, foster a fun learning environment, and help students blossom into well-rounded individuals.

In closing, I look forward to meeting with you to discuss in greater detail how I can contribute to the continued success of your music program. If you have any questions, or would like to set a time to meet, please feel free to contact me at the number listed above. In the interim, thank you for your time and consideration.
