Job Description

Join us and be the first teacher in a school in the United States to teach through an Afro-Caribbean Latin Jazz curriculum created by Jazz at Lincoln Center (JALC).

School Vision Statement for the Arts

 At TAPCo we take care of ourselves and each other. We support artistic self-expression and sustainability-oriented collaboration in a demanding, high-tech arts and academic environment. Students major in one of two areas; either in an arts studio or a technical/digital concentration. All TAPCo students learn the collaborative and self management skills required for success in the 21st century world of the arts enabling them to continually evolve and excel in college, career, and life.

The groundbreaking of TAPCo’s outdoor rooftop garden/outdoor sound stage makes us the first school in New York City that will have a space dedicated to student sustainability oriented gardening  and performances. A CDOS track (both SPED and Gen Ed) will enable students taking those courses, and our Arts studio majors, to intensively work together in learning real word digital skills- a hallmark of 21st century artistic endeavor.
