Clinton, OK 73601

Upon hearing that the current Band Director with Fairfax County Public School is retiring and the position is opening up, I would like to express my interest this position.

I am currently working as the Assistant Band Director for Kearsley Community School but there is no room for me to move up anytime soon and I would like the opportunity to advance my career. I am confident that I have the skills to be a great asset to your school and my teaching certifications are valid.

My experience includes directing the music program for the school and leading band practice. I manage and keep track of all the instruments used in the band and make sure they are all in good working condition. I also travel with the band to other schools when they are playing.

I enjoy working with students and helping them to learn how to play a band instrument well. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing their faces light up and the happiness they feel when they have masters an instrument or a new song as a group.

I have the ability to work late with students on a regular basis to ensure they get the training they need to be one of the best bands in the area. I love my job and I know I have the qualities needed to be a Band Director for your school.

I look forward to meeting with you in person to discuss this position in more detail and you can reach me by calling (111)-493-5993.

Sincerely,

Your Signature

William Alvarez
