    The Music Department at Concordia University Irvine announces a position in:

    Adjunct Professor of Double Bass

    STARTING DATE: January 2022

    WAGE: Pay is based on a variable hourly wage for music adjunct faculty

    RESPONSIBILITIES: Teach applied studio double bass (students may be music majors, music minors, or non-majors). The studio is projected to consist of 2-3 students. The instructor must be capable of successfully working with a wide range of musicians and musical goals, from performance majors to non-majors. In a given semester, students typically take ten 45-minute lessons (for one credit) or 14 one-hour lessons (for two credits). Paid responsibilities may include: prepare and teach private lessons, attendance at juries each semester, 1-2 department meetings per year, attendance at horn junior/senior recitals, recruitment, small ensemble coaching, and occasional performance duties. If available, there may be semesters where the adjunct professor will be asked to serve as a resident performing artist, playing with the Concordia orchestras once per week for an hourly wage (or to help find someone for this capacity).

    QUALIFICATIONS: Masters degree or doctorate. Teaching experience at the college level is desired. The candidate must be active as a performer and encourage prospective students to apply for music scholarships at Concordia Irvine. The candidate selected for this position must be able to meet eligibility requirements to work in the United States at the time the appointment is scheduled to begin and be able to communicate effectively in English. In accordance Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and with the university's status as a church-operated institution, all adjunct faculty members must be practicing Christians, active at a Christian church.

    GENERAL INFORMATION: Concordia University Irvine offers an excellent liberal arts education in the Lutheran tradition for approximately 4500 students, 1400 of whom are undergraduates. The Department of Music, with app. 65 music majors and 85 non-majors involved in performance ensembles, has app. 30 faculty members (full and part time). Music majors may earn a Bachelor of Arts in Music with optional concentrations in church music, music education, commercial music, composition, or performance. There is strong potential for significant growth in the coming years, as a new music building opened in 2019. Plans for an $11 million remodel of the CU Center for Worship and the Arts and a $6 million outdoor performance venue are underway. Music ensembles perform in Segerstrom Concert Hall for Christmas and other major halls on tours. An annual PBS Christmas special airs throughout Southern California and is likely to expand to affiliates across the U.S. soon. Concordia has a wind orchestra, symphony orchestra, jazz ensembles, chamber ensembles, Americana Ensemble, Commercial Music Ensemble, 4 choirs, 4 handbell groups, and several worship bands. Students may study any standard orchestral or church instrument with superior professional faculty performers. Concordia actively recruits and offers tuition discount scholarships to excellent musicians.

However, Concordia University, Irvine is a Christian educational institution operated by The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and, in compliance with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, reserves the right to give preference in employment based upon religion.
