Concordia College, Moorhead, MN, invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position in Music Education (with an emphasis in the elementary level). This position is expected to be hired at the Assistant Professor rank (commensurate with qualifications and experience) starting August 2023.

Qualifications: The successful candidate will have at least 5 years of public-school teaching experience and an earned doctorate (ABD considered) in Music Education or a related field. Preferred qualifications include experience teaching K-5 general music, experience with multicultural music, and certification in Orff and/or Kodaly methods (completed or in progress).

Responsibilities will include teaching undergraduate music education courses – such as elementary general music methods, classroom music for elementary teachers, and student-teacher supervision – as well as teaching in Concordia’s graduate program (summer courses in person and academic year courses online) in music education, which was launched in 2022. Additional teaching may be assigned in other areas of the candidate’s interest and expertise, aligned with departmental needs such as (but not limited to) global music studies, string music education, ensemble conducting, and/or studio teaching (in the candidate’s primary area). Active participation in recruiting efforts for undergraduate and graduate music education programs is expected.

In support of the College’s ambitious goals for diversity and inclusion, the Music Department is interested in applicants who will contribute to the development of an increasingly diverse campus community, and have experience working effectively with diversified populations and responding to the changing demands on emerging music educators and professionals. The successful candidate will aspire to be part of a community that affirms an abundance of identities, experiences, and perspectives in order to imagine, examine and implement possibilities for individual and communal thriving both inside and outside of the Music Department. Applicants from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

The Music Department at Concordia College is NASM accredited and the largest single department on campus, with 40 faculty and more than 1/4 of the entire student body participating in vocal and instrumental lessons and ensembles. The department maintains an excellent reputation throughout the region, with over 150 students majoring in music (music education, composition, or performance) each year, many of whom pursue careers in music education, while others pursue graduate school and/or careers in performing or creative activity. The post-graduation employment rate for music education majors pursuing jobs in the field is extremely high, and many graduates go on to achieve graduate degrees at leading national institutions.

Concordia College is a private, co-educational, baccalaureate liberal arts college of approximately 1,850 students and 150 faculty. The college is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and prepares students to become responsible leaders in a global society. It is located in the Moorhead (MN)/Fargo (ND) area, a growing metropolitan area of approximately 250,000, consistently ranked among the nation’s most livable cities. Fargo-Moorhead’s thriving cultural scene is home to a variety of professional arts organizations including its own opera, ballet, and theatre companies, symphony orchestra, film festival, and art museums and galleries. Please visit the Concordia College website at for more information about the college and the music program.

Applications may be submitted online at:

A cover letter, curriculum vitae, names and contact information of at least 3 references, and easily accessible links to teaching/presentation videos (2-3 videos demonstrating teaching and/or scholarly presentation are requested.) Additional supplemental materials may be solicited later in the search process. Review of applications will begin January 2, 2023, and continue until the position is filled. The position’s starting date is August 2023.
