A faculty position has come open in the Commercial Music program at South Plains College in Levelland, TX.
This is the program where banjo legend Alan Munde taught for so many years, and where bluegrass multi-instrumentalist Joe Carr still resides.
South Plains is accepting CVs and interviewing candidates now for an instructor who can teach multiple instruments in the bluegrass/acoustic genres.
From the job posting:
The instructor will be involved in developing and maintaining a vibrant bluegrass and acoustic music program. Instructor must possess strong leadership qualities and communication skills to plan and direct student performance groups including live television and music festivals. The ability to play and teach multiple acoustic instruments is preferred; banjo is a plus. Associate degree required with professional performance and teaching experience.
Program Coordinator Sonny Borba says that things are going well in level land, and that they are planning to have Ron Block back down to offers clinics this Fall when the college celebrates the official opening of their new studio.
Those interested in the position can contact Sonny by email.
