All students seeking employment should be prepared to submit a resume (CV) and a cover letter to hiring managers. A list of departments that typically hire students can be found here.

The Conservatory in the Schools (CIS) Program was initiated twelve years ago to provide support to the under-served music programs in the San Francisco Unified School District. CIS is an outreach program in which Conservatory student interns assist classroom teachers during music class and provide primary instrumental and early childhood music instruction to public school students.
Those accepted into the program are then assigned to teach 2-4 hours a week at a San Francisco public school. Teaching time is compensated and students receive one internship credit each semester.
These are examples of the types of experiences our interns have acquired:
The class meets as a group three times each semester; guest educators will lead discussions focusing on pedagogical techniques specific to teaching music in public school settings. These seminars focus on classroom management, discipline techniques, and developmental learning stages of elementary and adolescent-aged music students.
“The CIS program gave me the practical training experience I need to feel confident in my teaching abilities as [I take] on more classroom and private teaching since graduation.” Jill Heinke, CIS mentor
“It’s a very rewarding and worthwhile experience working with younger people who respond to your efforts and enthusiasm in a positive way.”
