Position Details

The Department of Music within the College of Arts & Letters at The University of Tampa is pleased to invite applications for a full-time, non-tenure-track, Instructor of Voice position to begin August 2020.


The University of Tampa is a medium-sized, comprehensive, residentially-based private institution of 9,200 undergraduate and graduate students.  The University is ideally situated on a beautiful 110-acre campus next to the Hillsborough River, adjacent to Tampa's dynamic central business district, which is a growing, vibrant, diverse metropolitan area.  UT reflects this vibrancy; with 20 consecutive years of enrollment growth UT boasts 229 student organizations, a multicultural student body from 50 states and 140 countries, and "Top Tier" ranking in U.S. News and World Report.

The successful candidate will teach weekly applied voice lessons to students in the classical and musical theatre voice programs. The position will instruct 120 credit hours of applied voice lessons annually (e.g., 60 credit hours of applied voice lessons, per semester, for both the fall and spring semesters). Note, 2 credit hours of applied voice teaching is the equivalent of 50 minutes of contact time, or 1 applied voice student. Therefore 60 credit hours of applied voice teaching per semester is the equivalent of 30 applied voice students. Voice lessons are taught on a weekly basis, throughout the semester.

The successful candidate will also be expected to actively participate in service activities according to the needs of the Music Department, including: assessment for jury exams, vocal ensemble performances, departmental student recitals, senior showcases, prehearings, and junior/senior recitals; preparing students for competitive auditions (e.g., NATS and/or TBNATS); recruiting activities on and off campus; voice auditions; as well as faculty meetings and committees.

The successful candidate will have a master’s or doctoral degree in music, and evidence of successful college-level teaching.
