Job Title: Band/Music Director

Damien High School is seeking an experienced, creative, innovative Director of the Spartan Regiment and Music programs to join the staff. If you are a musician and have experience at motivating, training and supervising high school students in a band performance program, you are invited to send your resume to hemenway@damien-hs.edu
