Piano Accompanists for Education Programs
Paper Mill Playhouse is searching for freelance piano accompanists for our new Paper Mill Prep: College Discovery & Audition Coaching Program. Paper Mill Prep is a new offering from the award winning Paper Mill Education department that prepares high school seniors and juniors for their college career through informational seminars, assessment workshops, and private audition coaching.
Paper Mill Prep accompanists will work directly with Paper Mill private coaches and their students enrolled in the program. One-hour coaching sessions are scheduled by appointment and typically occur at Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey on weeknights after 6:30pm, and on weekend mornings. The accompanist will play the students’ audition songs, offer input regarding proper cuts and keys, make notations in the music, and may be asked to facilitate making audio recordings of the accompaniment. The accompanist will work directly with the coach assigned to each student, and report to the program musical director and administrative coordinator. The accompanist should have strong sight-reading skills, and preferably be able to transpose keys in real time.
