Apply to Teach

Applications Due Sunday, Feb 5

Thank you for your interest in teaching at BOSS 2023. Use the form below to tell us what class (or classes) you would like to teach. BOSS has always been the proving ground for the new and unexpected, so the more out-there your ideas are, the better!

The theme for BOSS 2023 is Vocal Efficiency & Sustainability, with featured educational sessions focusing on this topic presented by Featured Educator Dr. Justin John Moniz. Applicants are encouraged to consider and/or describe how their proposed class intersects with either – or both! – of these themes (e.g., an arranging class focused on techniques for writing sustainably singable arrangements). While not required, those proposals which support this year’s theme will receive special consideration.

As our first in-person festival since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are looking for classes that are hands-on, interactive, progressive, though-provoking, and connective. Consider having your students sing, participate, collaborate, or discuss during the class versus having a traditional lecture-based class. Attendees should leave your workshop with some new tangible skills, work created during the class, and/or new ideas to take action on.

All applications must be submitted no later than February 5th and will be reviewed by members of the BOSS team. During the submission process, a team member may reach out for more information in order to revise, refine, or flesh out your submitted class idea(s). Selected instructors will be notified of acceptance by February 26th and will receive a free All-Access Pass to this year's festival.

Questions? Reach out to Alex Green, our Education Coordinator, at [email protected].
